    Those were the days when I first met you. Boom Shaka was pretty cool. I’m sorry about Trevy, I know how hard that kind of loss can be.

      Hi Virgil. No, I didn’t go to the memorial show. I wasn’t up for a memorial so soon. Trevy’s brother Ray is planning an annual festival though, starting next February in Dominica.

    I just came across this again. In 2015 I had just discovered the music of Trevy Felix and Nelly Stharre and I totally loved their songs and videos, such as Dread Act and Rivers of Love. When the bad news hit the Internet I was so shocked and I frantically tried to find more information. I just couldn’t believe it all. There was hardly any info to be found and so your remembrance was more than welcome. It gave a good impression of Trevy and the kind of person he was. I really appreciated it at the time and still do now. So a belated big thank you!!!
