"A small break and Clinton Fearon steps out, all in white, with an immense smile. Clinton Fearon opens a capellaHe slips his guitar on and opens the show alone with his instrument for a first song a capella. We hear Fearon's powerful and profound voice, vibrant, his light play on the strings...A huge release of emotion. The Elysée, resonating a little, applauds and welcomes the Boogie Brown Band, who return to the stage, also dressed in white. This time it's all their voices that rise for another a capella on "Have a little faith" (which serves as the intro and closing for the album "Give and Take", in fact the intro for the track "Blood For Blood"). It's no lighter on emotion; shivers run through our bodies... and then the music explodes and we let ourselves be carried away." (Reggae Bash 2005)
