Threads Of Scarlet Rocks!
Booming with excitement and spilling over with anticipation, the atmosphere was nothing less than epic. Saturday, March 26th, Threads of Scarlet proved to be not only one of the best rock acts in Barbados but showed they are ones to watch.

From jamming to their original musical fusions such as 'Hot Box' (a song promoting marijuana use) or rocking out to 'Falling From Far', a more classic hard rock ballad fully equipped with screams and high notes, Threads of Scarlet, for lack of better words, BLEW THE ROOF OFF! The event was highly publicised and the fans kept flowing in throughout the night, emitting an atmosphere reminiscent of Woodstock!

The event was also attended by fellow musicians Mahalia Philips of local rock/pop band Nexcyx, which recently tore up the SXSW Music Festival in Texas, and Coverdrive's Amanda Reifer. Coverdrive recently got signed to Geffen Records this year.
Threads of Scarlet is a four-man band lead on vocals by Bajan boys Nicholas Ward and Jesse Foster and backed by Americans Stu Damm and Mark Glinka, on drums and bass respectively.
