MAJESTIC GOSPEL BAND: In the summer of 1989, a group of young musicians for a special meeting. Mr. Finch then shared his desire to from a new band “Majestic Gospel Band” and he wanted everyone present to be a part of it. These youngsters were all members of the church and were already accustomed of playing and singing together in church. In fact earlier that year they won a band competition sponsored by the St. Kitts Youth For Christ with a special rendition of Andre Crouch’s “My Tribute”
Even though the Majestics had been making one achievement after another the group was not officially launched until early in 1991 we held a dedication service. Shortly after tragedy struck the Majestics with the death of there lead singer Sonia Boddie. The band rebounded and continued to grow from strength to strength, they continued to ministering local churches and at gospel concerts through out the federation.
In the summer of 1993 Majestics recorded its first album entitled, “CHAMPION” on cassette. That same summer the band made its first overseas tour, traveling to Anguilla and St. Maarten. Majestic then had a set back when Dennis Amory leader/keyboardist at the time went overseas to study. Derick Jacobs, the bass man then took up leadership of the group but soon got married and moved to Nevis.
During this time the band underwent a period of dormancy. Determined not to let their talents dwindle, a few members stuck together and started to reconstruct the band, bringing in some new and experienced musicians. Euclid Osborne lead vocalist took up leadership responsibility fort the band. Shortly after reconstruction Majestic produced their second album entitled “FOREVER”. This 1998 recording was the band’s recording on Compact Disc (CD). In 1999 the band being a top local group, they were one of the featured artist at the annual St. Kitts Music Festival. The band performed with artiste such as Carlene Davis of Jamaica, Greg O’Quinn of the U.S.A, and Shine The Light of U.S.V.I.
Majestic remained focused on its ministry to win souls for Christ and released its third album “CHANGE YOUR LIFE” in November of 2000. Belinda Telemaque of St. Thomas U.S.V.I who resided in St. Kitts at the time was featured on this album. Belinda has since move to West Palm Florida U.S.A and has gone on to produce here own album entitled “HANG TIGHT”. This album also took Majestic to an international level shortly after the release, the band traveled to Tortola B.V.I three times, St. Croix, U.S.A, Nevis, Anguilla, St. Martin and Barbados where the band ministered with Lisa Kemp of the U.S.A, Promise of Barbados, Chevelle Franklyn of Jamaica, Judah development of Antigua and much more. Majestics is recognized as one of the top gospel bands in the region and continues to spread the good news of Jesus Christ with limited resources.
In July of 2003 the band ministered at a local major Gospel Fest where they opened for international artist Donnie Mac Clurklin of the U.S.A. Two months later the Majestics was the featured artist in the British Virgin Island’s “EMANCIPATION DAY CELEBRATIONS”. In December of 2003 the “CHANGE YOUR LIFE” sound track was the main song used in the annual World Aids day march and rally. The band has since been more actively involved in the fight against HIV/AIDS.
In June 2004 the band was once again on the Annual St. Kitts Music Festival backing up two international artistes, Pepper Ranks of St.Kitts and Clive Williams of U.S.V.I who were opening acts for Brian Mc Knight of the U.S.A. More recently in 2005 the band was honored to minister at the swearing in ceremony of the government of St. Kitts, the renditions were well received by the gathering of Officials and nationals there.
