With the venue moved indoors for fear of rain, there were questions about how successful this year’s staging of Miami’s staple Reggae/Dancehall stage show Best Of The Best would be. By now I’m sure you’re aware that the venue was packed and all the performers billed were able to take the stage to the delight of concert goers. Better still, the performances did not disappoint. This may be the year that Best Of The Best proved it can not only survive anything but thrive in the process.
