Maybe you've never done the Tornado dance, but if you live in Belize, you've certainly heard the song - and this weekend at the third annual Punta Fest, performing artist Loverboy is sure to perform an extended mix of the deathless crowd pleaser.

He arrived in Belize this morning for Saturday's show along with veteran Aziatic. They told us what to expect:..

Lovaboy - Artist, Performing at Puntafest
"This is one of the most exciting shows I ever performed. I performed at different places; I am still on tour as we speak, but one of the things that excite me about it is the level of promotion, likewise the line-up. You have some very great artists who can deliver on the stage, artists who have done their part in taking Belizean music to a whole different plateau, whole different level. And the line-up is one of the greatest things; the vibes that I am feeling, even on the plane, I just can't wait for Saturday. It's a blessing. It's all about Punta Fest, MCC, Saturday. You all come out."

Aziatic - Artist, Performing at Puntafest
"We're expecting to do something very good for the people. The plan, again, is to celebrate the culture; you know. 19th is pretty much around the corner, and the whole Punta Fest is going to be something to start it all up for whole celebration time."

Jules Vasquez
"Explain what it's like having a hit song of such magnitude as you have."

"It's you all, the people, who made the song such a huge song. And by the way, the song is playing in India; people are doing the tornado in India, and that's because of you all. You all said it first; Belize said it first."

"The concert thing is always almost more exciting because when you're thinking concert, you're thinking big stage, lighting, and just a huge crowd out there. And it's much more exciting; it's much more energy involved, so I'm excited right now. I haven't really been this excited in a very long time."

"It's an honor and a pleasure to be on the stage rocking the show with legendary people - Aziatic, Supa G - and also too for the youngsters who are coming up - Consego, Taprick, Ms. Ernestine - I used 'youngsters' very loosely, but it's a unity thing. It's a very special thing. I can't really answer that question, but we will see what is happening. When we touchdown on the stage, it's time to work; it's time to operate."

Today, both artists went to visit a city school and the KHMH Pediatric Ward.

The show is set for Saturday at 9:00 at the MCC Grounds.

3rd Annual Punta Fest

A massive concert is going down this weekend at the MCC Grounds and it will feature some of Belize’s top musicians. It’s the third annual Punta Fest and it’s leading up to Garifuna Settlement Day. The lineup of artists is all you need to know that it’s going to be hype. Ernestine Carballo, Supa G, Consigo, Taprick, Titiman Flores, Lova Boy and Aziatic will all be taking for one night of non-stop dancing. While most of the performers live in Belize, Lova Boy and Aziatic came home today to get ready for Saturday night’s concert. News Five caught up with them at the airport.

Aziatic, Belizean Punta Artist

“I’m really excited. Right now I’m just ready to go on stage, I’m ready to give the people something excited. It’s really nice right now.”

Delahnie Bain


“So what can Belizeans expect when they come out to Punta Fest this weekend?”


“They can expect to have a good time. The whole idea right now is to have somebody you know Lova Boy, Supa G, Consigo and all these guys on the same stage; it’s just something that I think is necessary. This is our music. You hear all these countries having Sun splash and all these other concerts and this is something for us to come and showcase our talents to our people and just really give them an experience like no other.”

Lova Boy

Lova Boy, Belizean Punta Artist

“Dah di most beautiful feeling eena di world when yoh step off ah dah plane and dah air hit yoh, yoh know weh di go on, yoh deh home, welcome to Belize. Every time I come home dah wah beautiful thing. I can’t ask fi nothing betta dan fi get pay fi come home and live my dream. It is I Lova Boy. We understand whereby entertainment is powerful so we di push di unity aspect. They could expect fi have wah great time, dehn can’t expect fi go home dry because we ah sweat out all ah di bad energy and we wah do it; craziness, nuff music.”

Delahnie Bain

“I know that you guys get to perform in a lot of different countries, how does it compare to when you get to perform here for your own people?”


“There really is no comparison when you’re home, you’re home. The vibe is different, the energy is different because, again this is where the music is. When you go to other countries, of course they appreciate it and they like it. However, when you’re here you’re doing it for an audience that pretty much understands what you’re doing. Whether people understand the language, or whatever it may be, it’s just a different vibe so it’s an exciting thing.”

Lova Boy

“Rememba weh we di do, man like myself, Aziatic, Supa G, Reckless, Andy Palacio rest in music—me seh RIM, no RIP—we di ker Belize music outside ah di world. But when we perform it yah, dah like we noh have to try explain eena no way weh we di do. Unnu just understand if we start wiggle and whine, unnu done know weh di go on already. So dah wah pleasure fi si di joy eena people face and fi hear di people eena yoh own country cause no mek no mistake, dah unnu mek we. Without unnu, there’s no Lova Boy, there’s no Aziatic, there’s no Supa G, there’s none ah we. So we love unnu real.”

So get your dancing shoes ready for the concert that’s coming up.
