Lilongwe-based Soul Raiders Band on Sunday made a rare performance in Blantyre that turned Premier Lodge in Chileka into a three-hour non-stop dance and sing-along.
Led by Prince Martin, the performance lived to the billing. The turnout was amazing and Entertainers Promotion was on point in terms of sound. No wonder, some patrons likened the performance to Morgan Heritage’s.
“The performance revoked memories of Morgan’s performance in Lilongwe two years ago,” said one patron Faith Joseph at the end of the show.
The last time Soul Raiders performed in Blantyre was three years ago and their return was much anticipated. The non-stop performance that left a majority of patrons soaked in sweat, featured the band’s 10 best hits.
The front man Martin said: “I was impressed. It was a live party and the sing-along made the session a memorable one.”
Entertainers Promotion manager Tonderai Banda said the show created another history for the outfits.
“We always strive to leave a mark in whatever we do and Soul Raiders just complemented the identity. Their performance thrilled,” he said.
Zomba-based Police Orchestra and Reggae Sounds warmed up the stage for the reggae stars.
