Iza Vybe the band was hands down the highlight of the night last Thursday as Elevate Events, Booze Cruise and Jus Jay Events combined to host Lifted Crop Over under the theme 'Elementz' - Steel, Riddim, Fiyah.
Heavy rains threatened the Southern Pit area of the Bushy Park race track, but patrons who braved the weather did not regret their decision to come out.
The Iza Vybe band had the party rocking, as they seemed to have a beat for each tune and hyped up the crowd during and between DJ sets.
Their stage was elevated at certain points of the night, which brought more attention and excitement to their performance.
"The venue was not super muddy and even with the rain falling every now and then I still had a splendid time. I really like what they did with the band this year. I don't know the name of the band but they really brought a different feel to the event I think is always needed. They hyped up the crowd from start to finish. Good job to those fellows and to the promoters. I look forward to seeing what you'll be bringing next year," said one patron.
Another individual described the event as "organised" and "on point", adding, "I love the idea of the elevating stage and the band joining in with the DJs and performers. I haven't seen anything like this in a while. I can't really find anything bad to say except the rain that has nothing to do with the promoters."
DJs Puffy, Payou, Shep Beats and Konata, Bubbles and Evolution, Vibenation and performers Nikita, Stabby, Marzville also kept the crowd entertained until the event's 1:00 a.m. finish.
