On Saturday, the Columbus Communications family, operators of Flow and Columbus Business Solutions, showcased their lifestyle to the world when they hosted their annual Christmas party at the University of the West Indies Mona campus. The organisers transformed what is usually an examination tent into a pristine all-white pavilion for their staff and specially invited guests to celebrate the Yuletide season.

Colin Hines was at the turntable with musical selections that excited, while Jason Delvaille from Gastronomie served up creative Christmas creations for those eager foodies.

However, the highlight of the night was the live performance from the legendary Beres Hammond. What was before an empty dance floor was immediately turned into a stage-show gathering as patrons moved forward when the reggae crooner hit the stage. Performing for the intimate crowd, Hammond chose some of his biggest hits for the small but eager crowd such as Standing in My Way, Step Aside Love, Tempted to Touch, and Putting Up Resistance. During his set, the reggae icon shared, "Ah nuh every and anybody me

come out for. All the elements have to be right, including production, and I trust the production company that Flow hired," after telling a few jokes about being a Flow customer.

Hammond finished off his set with a few love songs, after which Colin Hines returned to his turntable duties and brought the party to a new high.
