After a hard day at work, music lovers now have a space to unwind with the introduction of Level Up Wednesdays. Staged at Level 96 Bar, located at 96 Hope Road, the aim is to bring people together and create a space for aesthetes to enjoy music by local talents.

"We want people to meet their favorite artiste, discover new talents, and interact with them," said

The space provides for musicians a place to play and for the audience an intimate and relaxing setting.

Last Wednesday's staging was a success and the response, overwhelming as Mario Evon performed a stellar set had the audience latching on to every note.

"The interaction between the audience and artiste was magical as they sang along, laughed and even requested music. There were many requests for an encore, the artist ran out of songs to sing. It was a happy environment, and after the event, patrons all had the opportunity to take photographs and speak to Mario."

"I truly thank the Level 96 Bar team for creating another space for live music in Jamaica. It was a pleasure to be included as one of the artists on the 'Level Up' series, and last night was magical, intimate and just a fun evening of 'reggae-soul'. Was great to be so close to the audience and feel their energy, and I also look forward to being a patron as well," expressed Mario Evon.
