Reggae Music to Rock Independence Village, August 5, 2017

International Reggae Artistes Queen Ifrica, Chaka Demus and Plyers, Sanchez, Bugle and Lust are amongst the Headliners getting ready to rock the Independence Village at the upcoming Kingston Reggae Night Concert. The concert, which will be the final of shows in the nightly Jamaica 55 Independence Festival line up, will be held at the National Arena on Saturday, August 5, beginning at 8:00 pm.

According to Stephen Davidson, Director, Marketing & Public Relations JCDC, “In keeping with the Jamaica 55 theme “Celebrating Jamaicans at Home and Abroad”, the nightly shows promised an exciting and thrilling experience for all Jamaicans and visitors to the island and each show has delivered on that promise. And now with its epic line up, Kingston Reggae Night is an excellent ending to way to end this celebratory series. It’s a show not to be missed.”

In addition to the Reggae-rocking headliners, the show will also feature two special segments, namely a Tribute to Ska by the musically-renowned Ibo Cooper, and Next Generation – Children of Reggae Greats, featuring the talented off-spring of some of the biggest names in Reggae.

“We are especially excited about the Next Generation segment, as it will highlight the equally talent children of some household Reggae names. It shows the real promise of Reggae music and what we can look forward to from this upcoming generation.” Davidson said.

Next Generation will feature Pashon Minott, daughter of Sugar Minott; Meleku, son of Sizzla Kalonji; Garnet Silk Jr, son of Garnet Silk, Imeru Tafari, son of Queen Ifrica and Davianah, daughter of Tony Rebel.

Tickets can be purchased from the JCDC Head Office at 3-5 Phoenix Ave, Kingston 10, online at www.jcdcjamaica.com, all Fontana Pharmacy locations and at BX Ticket Hub at Bill Express locations island-wide.
