8 July 2019
What’s summer without some Juicy Fruit? Luckily for you, you don’t have to wait to find out. presents an entire Juice Bar of your favorite fruit, set against the background of the historic Doongalik Art Gallery estate and its Craft Cottage.
Juicy Fruit, written by Bodine herself and produced by Rik Carey of BahaMen, is one of the artists’ classic songs which draws inspiration from Goombay and Junkanoo. Musically, there are many inspirations ranging from Dry Bread, to Geno D, Swain & The Citations and Dr. Off, blended perfectly through the genius of Rik Carey, In the video, Bodine pays visual homage to classic Bahamian songs like Joseph Spences’ rendition of Don’t Touch Mi Tomato, Dry Bread’s Sweet, Sweet, Sappodilly, and the Caribbean classic Big Bamboo among many others. See if you can spot them all. There are quite a few.
Ring play, romance, Commerce and the Arts are all prominent themes in Juicy Fruit. The Farmer’s Market is an important aspect of the video as it represents Bahamian art and culture in many forms and the businesses that Bahamians have traditionally been a part of. Unique Straw Work, The Coconut Factory, Havashell Productions and Paradiyse all show in the film. What’s just as entertaining is all the playful innuendo that Bodine is known for in her music.

MY ONE GOOD NAME
What do party-goers have to say about BodineVictoria?
A FABULOUS PERFORMANCE
“Recently, I was blessed to marry the most beautiful girl in the world and because we are both musicians, Chrystal and I decided to feature some of our most favorite Bahamian artists on our special day. A highlight for us was having Bodine, better known as “B” preform during after reception drinks party and concert. Chrissy and I are both “old spirited”, and Bodine suited that vibe because she took some of our childhood songs and Rhythms and made them into hits! For example, one of our favorites is “ROCKA MY CHERRY”!
She was dazzling in her presentation and in how she engaged our guests - and not to mention her ensemble! She was professionally appropriate, on-time and she brought her a-game! It was a fabulous evening with a fabulous Bahamian entertainment with fabulous music that made for a fabulous wedding to remember for both us and our guests!”
