Nicholas Brancker packed the 500 seat Frank Collymore Hall and provided one of the most energetic and entertaining performances of his career.
According to Mr. Cleviston Haynes, the Deputy Governor - Central Bank of Barbados “City Nights" has been developed to allow Barbadians to experience the finest creative talents this country has to offer in the Frank Collymore Hall, the foremost state of the art facility in Barbados.
Nicholas proved him correct - the finest was certainly exhibited.
Every minute of the performances titled “influence " was purely entertaining at the maximum. It was also exhilarating in that most of the performers were young males with tremendous musical talent.
Sharing the stage were Biggie Irie, Alison Norville-Forde, Edwin Yearwood, Tamara Marshall, Philip Forester, Adrian " Boo" Husbands and others in " the Band".
Tony Cozier, considered the titan of Cricket Media was today laid to rest.

Barbados’ only living National Hero, Sir Garry Sobers, topped the list of mourners along with former Chief Justice Sir David Simmons, noted Caribbean jurist Sir Richard Cheltenham, West Indies batting great Sir Everton Weekes.
Several former West Indies players were also in attendance including legendary captain and current chairman of selectors, Clive Lloyd; legendary fast bowler and current Barbados Cricket Association president, Joel Garner; current West Indies head coach Phil Simmons and former West Indies vice-captain, Trinidadian Deryck Murray.
Barbados Sports Minister Stephen Lashley and Opposition Leader Mia Mottley were among the mourners
Cozier was eulogized by son Craig who described him as an outstanding family man, a true professional and a pioneer in the field of cricket journalism.
“I was lucky to have him as my mentor and teacher as I too charted a path in journalism and cricket, learning as much from his vast professional know-how as his human qualities,” said Craig, an international television cricket producer.
“For a long time the sole Caribbean presence on overseas campaigns, Dad paved the way for others to follow and he was delighted to be joined by like minded Caribbean men such as fellow commentator Reds Pereira, Jamaican journalist Tony Becca and photographer Gordon Brooks, to share his experiences with, as well as Michael Holding, Fazeer Mohammed and Ian Bishop in more recent times.”
He added: “Dad always had time for people and especially loved his family time.”
Cozier’s skills spanned radio, television and print, and he worked for nearly every major international media entity including the BBC, Channel Nine and Sky.
Cozier died last week Wednesday at age 75 following a brief hospitalisation.
He is survived by his wife, Jill, and children Craig and Natalie.
