‘Man at Work’ (Terryl Godoy) to hold Reggae Bus Concert and CD Launch
Friday, May 4th, 2012
San Pedro resident, Artist and Musician, Terryl Godoy aka Man at Work will hold his first Reggae Bus Concert and CD Launch, at the House of Culture in Belize City on Friday, May 4th from 7PM to 10PM. Belizean born, Terryl started painting at the young age of six and has travelled the world creating art from the landscapes he stood on.
Speaking of his artwork, Terryl stated, “I focus on realistic landscapes. I go out and capture my scenes live on the spot. I’ve painted in several parts of the world. I have painted in Trinidad, Grenada, St. Lucia, Guatemala, Honduras, London, Germany, Netherlands, New York and so many other places.”
Terryl is recognized in San Pedro as a local artist as well as a musician. His paintings are available at Rene’s Art Gallery and Belizean Arts at Fido’s Courtyard. Terryl plays various instruments and sings as well. In San Pedro he performs as a one man band at venues such as Hidden Treasure, Belizean Shores and Ramon’s.
During the year 1989-1990, Terryl exchanged one of his paintings for a keyboard, and that’s when his life as a musician began. He got his inspiration from listening to music from Steel Pulse, Black Uhuru and other reggae music. This music drove him to pick up a second instrument, the trombone. “Those are my favorite things and in all the music that I used to listen to they had a lot of horn sections in them. I didn’t know that a lot of this was going to rub off on me. I started to have the feeling and desire to want to play reggae music so I started to fool around with music and started to write my own songs and sing my own songs. I ended up starting to play reggae music on a keyboard. Of course after a little time I mastered it. Because of the love of horns, one day I went out and I bought a trombone. I was very fond of that and for about five years now I’ve been playing the trombone.”
The concert is also the venue for the release of Terryl’s new Reggae Bus CD and Music Video.
The concert will also feature performances by Belizean artists such as: Fire Link, Blackhenoh, Dr. Campbell and Mr. Bastic. Terryl will be accompanied by Kenny G and the New Generation Band. The concert is completely free of charge and opened to anyone wishing to attend. For more information please call 227-3050 or 661-8867.
