Which Ramesh are you speaking about?
the one that died not the living crooked one
The one from Club Tobago? I know a few, you have to be specific.
I think he was involved with club tobago but was conned out of ownership. He wanted me to come and play at some club because he was into music sponsoring after I left. I told him I am a weekend musician and my band mates include an investment banker and a lawyer and also not professional musicians. I do not know if Club Tobago was what he referenced when I last spoke to him. I think his brother was Vishnu or something like that. I know them but they were never my friends.
I believe it's him. He was in all the above and was conned out of business by his business partners and my cousin, who eventually get conned out by his fifth wife. The current business is Caribbean Cabana onJamaica Avenue. His business involved clubbing and live music. I don't know the full scope of his business involvement, but the few times I attended these places, I picked up bits and pieces of his business and lifestyle until he died. Crooks comes in all sizes and shapes. Some of his business partners cut him a raw deal. My own cousin was too ambitious and became one of the biggest crook until he lost everything.
small world...will not say more. Saw him in trinidad once..said he had a posse of chutney musicians. Could not go to his gig. As I said, i just know him because we met him one summer when he was at York college and we were students as well into hanging out. We took him clubbing in Manhattan once and later in the nineties I met him again and he took me to his club a couple of times. We just knew of each other but were not actually bosom buddies.
