In Kingston, “Jamaica, Bushman [photo above], Warrior King, George Nooks thrill at Reggae Wednesdays,” says The Star’s Shereita Grizzle. The first concert was held in tribute to the late Dennis Emmanuel Brown, who would have celebrated his birthday on February 1. The next installation of Reggae Wednesdays is set for February 8, also in Mandela Park in Half-Way Tree Square.
Mandela Park in Half-Way Tree Square could hardly contain the crowd that converged there as the weekly Reggae Wednesdays series got under way.
The concert, held in tribute to the late Dennis Emmanuel Brown, who would have celebrated his 60th birthday on February 1, delivered on its promise of a night of thrilling reggae music.
In addition to their own original songs, artistes on the line-up made sure to pay their respect to the iconic singer as they each performed at least one song from Brown’s extensive catalogue.
Warrior King, Bushman and George Nooks were particularly impressive in their delivery on stage.
[. . .] Other acts on the night’s line up included Christopher Martin, D Major, Alton Ellis’ son Christopher Ellis, Nicky Silk, Serena Constantine and Xylophone.
The next installation of Reggae Wednesdays is set for February 8, also inside Mandela Park.
