SusieCool's Band History Part 1.2
Post date: Jun 8, 2009 10:19:46 PM
1986-87 After a slight reorganization, there was a name change to WOW
(works of women). The band dropped Winsome, and took on a new member,
Olafunke, and they continued to play quite frequently. Then an offer came up
to be hired by a local Theatre group called "Sistren" as the musical background
for their play called "Muffett inna all a Wi". The music was mostly original reggae,
written by Winston Bell (Bello). WOW would open the show with a 30 min set
of their music.
Sistren did an island tour of Jamaica, while they perfected the play.
(They had a basic structure which they tweaked constantly).
Then they went on tour to London, Holland and Birmingham for 7 weeks.
In 87 they went to Canada, and the USA, and then Susie got married and left the band.
