Appleton Estate will be presenting a Father's Day edition of its 'Reserve the Night' virtual concert. The concert goes live tonight, with a line-up of performances and activities to entertain and educate viewers.

Headlining the event is Tarrus Riley, who is more than ready to take fans on a musical journey of excellence in collaboration with Appleton Estate.

"Well, you know, Father's Day is that time of year that we have to make an effort to really show some appreciation for the great fathers out there. We always do our best to highlight great mothers and show them our appreciation, as we should. But sometimes, great fathers are left by the wayside, so I think this is a really meaningful thing we're doing here with [Appleton Estate]," said Riley.

Talia Soares will host the Father's Day celebration. It will include an opening act by rising star Jaz Elise, mixology sessions with Senior Blender, David Morrison, alongside Joy Spence, Appleton Estate Rum Experience Mixologist, Randeen Thomas, and video features with past Signature Nights (now Reserve the Night) artistes speaking of their personal journeys through fatherhood. Titled 'Stories about Dad', this series will feature performers like Romain Virgo, Wayne Marshall, D Major, Beenie Man and Jesse Royal. The videos will also touch on each artiste's personal relationship with their fathers.

"At Appleton Estate, we are always looking for ways to showcase Jamaican excellence. I think the artistes and fathers that we selected for this occasion will help to do this by pairing the ultra-premium range of Appleton Estate expressions with men who embody Jamaican excellence. We hope that those who tune in will enjoy the show and celebrate their fathers, responsibly, of course," said Kamal Powell, marketing manager, J. Wray & Nephew Limited.

The Appleton Estate Reserve the Night Father's Day celebration will be live-streamed from Appleton Estate's official social media pages beginning at 7 p. m . Visit @ appletonestateja on Instagram and Facebook for more information.
