Bankie Banx Live Streams Anguilla To You From The Dune Preserve
Few things have the power to better keep us connected with the Caribbean during the coronavirus crisis than music. Maybe it’s a Beres Hammond lover’s rock that recalls your last romantic escape to Nevis. Or maybe it’s a bangin’ Bunji Garlin soca smash that instantly brings you back to Trinidad Carnival. Music just has a special way of recreating the magic of being in the Caribbean no matter where you are.
Taking things one step further is our old friend Bankie Banx.
It was nearly eight years ago when we first met at his home/beach bar/concert venue, The Dune Preserve in Anguilla. The story he told of the random circumstances that led John Mayer to perform at his annual Moonsplash concert remains one of the funniest videos we’ve ever shared.
These days Bankie is practicing social distancing at home just like the rest of us. Thankfully, though, he’s turned on a few cameras to let us all share the usual vibes and good times down at The Dune.
Indeed, like Diplo, John Legend, Willie Nelson, and a host of other artists, Bankie Banx has been live streaming performances from The Dune in recent days. Follow Bankie on Facebook for the best way to keep up with the schedule.
For a taste of Bankie’s music, check out this quick video I shot of him performing with his son, Omari Banks, at The Dune back in November…
Here’s hoping the music sees you through until the next time we can rendezvous at The Dune.
