Tod will no longer play with Brannon
A musician who played in the same band as disgraced activist and entertainer Tony Brannon said last night that the pair would no longer perform together after Mr Brannon's “unacceptable comments”.
Felix Tod, a DJ and keyboardist, was speaking in the wake of Mr Brannon's remarks on social media two weeks ago, where he called the people in charge of immigration “cockroaches” on Facebook.
Their band, The Big Chill, was later dropped by the Hamilton Princess & Beach Club, where it had performed on a regular basis.
Mr Tod added: “For me, The Big Chill was not only about entertainment, but also about equality.
“It has been a great honour to share the stage with and bring forward young Bermudian talent and that is exactly what I will continue to do as a producer, DJ and musician.
Mr Tod added: “Jesse Seymour and I, together with guitarist Ben Payne and another amazing singer, will honour all our upcoming wedding and event commitments performing under a new name.”
Mr Brannon apologised after he was branded racist for theposts.
Mr Tod said he had enjoyed the community's support in his DJ work as well as in the electronic band Milk ‘n' Money.
He added: “Music provides a platform and we have a responsibility to use that platform to champion fairness.
“I'm looking forward to collaborating even more with local artists to bring great music to life.”
