Best Haitian Band Miami 2007 - T-Vice

Miami based T-Vice is the undisputed king of the new konpa, a deliciously melodious Haitian tropical blend infused with American pop influences like hip-hop and R&B. Founding members Roberto Martino and Reynaldo Martino have been doing their thing since the mid-Nineties, when they moved to Miami and reunited with their father, Robert Martino, leader of popular Haitian band Top-Vice. Naming their group after their father's, the Martino brothers and T-Vice would soon earn a large following, thanks to a series of innovative pop albums that rejuvenated the konpa movement with English-language lyrics. Hot collaborations with luminaries like Wyclef Jean and dancehall superstar Buju Banton (on the song "Party By The Sea") have turned the T-Vice squad into the new ambassadors of Haitian music. And while they travel the world, bringing their audiences delight with solid konpa hits like "4 Las," there's no greater joy than watching the boys let loose in their adopted hometown. Banm T-Vice Mwen, indeed.

I am a friend, of a local Original Music , Alternative Rock Band Musician and Band, named Ryan Stone, he and five other original artists, will be donating their time, to raise money and awareness, to help with relief efforts, in their own way. It would be a far more profitable, non-profitable event, if they could be so lucky, to have the appearance and share the experience, through the Haitian Music, possibly to be performed by someone, who knows. Is it possible, to have the presence of your musician, this Saturday, in Coconut Grove Center, from noon, to sundown. With each band performing 45 minutes, or whatever could be contributed. I know, I would love to know, what Haitians feel like, through the feeling of the instruments and soul of their music and song. What do you think? I can put the event coordinator, in touch with you, if you need. Thank you for your kind attention and heart. Tracie Samara ( a citizen, trying to do my part)

You best bet would be to go on their myspace page and almost always, there is "Contact/Booking" section where they have e.mail section to book artist/bands/performers and bam, there you have it.

How did you get TVICE to be the best of 07 while Djakout Mizik is chosen to be the Best Band of 2007. Please be fair when nominating a band. DJAKOUT IS THE BEST.

I believe they deserve group of the year. T-Vice have been working hard since 1992 if i am not mistaken. They have more hits in their new album than any other haitian bands. The only thing that i can say, they are the best Haitian groups ever.

Much repect to you guys, Anderson

Do Sakapfet have anything to do with this story because I see a Sakapfet link at the top. T-Vice is a great band but their fans are too desperate for the "BEST" title and it is scary.

Well hopefully you guys get that title one day like Sweet Micky.

Is there a concert this weekend at the Miami Arena with Haitian bands? If so, what bands will be here and what is the entrance fee and time?

Thanks,
