Tessanne Chin regatta St. Maarten

The recent 32nd St. Maarten Heineken Regatta saw many Caribbean celebrities and musicians in full attendance.

Jamaican sibling songstresses Tessanne Chin and Tami Chynn rocked the boardwalk in downtown Phillipsburg. Tessanne delivered rock and pop-infused reggae hits such as “BlackBooks”, “Messenger” and the mega-hit “Hideaway.” She even put a Rock-Reggae spin on Kevin Lyttle’s Soca smash “Turn Me On.”

Tessanne Chin delights the audience with her strong vocals.

Meanwhile, Tami unleashed her collection of ‘eclectic Dancehall’ tunes which included the well loved “Hyperventilating”, “Over and Over” and “Frozen.”

Reppin’ Trinidad and Tobago were Ziggy Ranking and Terry Seales who were backed by St. Maarten’s, The Showtime Band.

    umm… the last pic reads…”Beres Hammond flanked by…….” Beres is not ‘flanked’ –flanked suggests he is in the middle of the other two. SMH. Anyway, didn’t you miss out Shadowman? St. Maarten’s own?
