RJR Group to celebrate Kingston Music Week
The RJR Communications Group has fully launched its new initiative, Kingston Music Week 2013.
The celebration of live music all across the Kingston Metropolitan Area will run from Sunday, December 1 to Saturday, December 7.
Numerous venues and artistes have signed up to showcase different genres of music to a hungry public that has long been underfed with live music. The concentration of all these events, many of which offer free entry, will give Kingstonians and visitors the chance to overindulge.
The range of performances includes a presentation by the Jamaica Association of Vintage Artistes and Affiliates that features Fab 5, Gem Myers, Boris Gardiner, Stranjah Cole, Lloyd Lovindeer, Keith Lyn, and more. Dwight Richards, VC and Nikiesha Barnes play at Bleu Essence at Kings Plaza, Assassin aka Agent Sasco and Wayne Marshall take aim at Tracks & Records, Admiral Bailey sails into Pulse8, Romain Virgo and Tifa score at Triple Century, Tanya Stephens unveils a new album at Whitebones, and Chronixx headlines a slate at Wickie Wackie.
Then there is 'Dinner and a Show' at the Pegasus Grill, The Grog Shoppe, Devon House, and 689 by Brian Lumley.
The variety extends to lunchtime concerts with school bands and even the world-renowned Jamaican Folk Singers at Devon House.
The Funky Munky hosts Seretse Small and Da Blue Print Band while the new sensation Nature plays at Nanook.
Kingston Music Week offers a range of choices to support the local music industry, from the students, including those at the Edna Manley College of the Visual and Performing Arts, to the seasoned professionals like Wayne Armond and the Warm and Easy band.
The RJR Communications Group has long been a supporter of live music in Jamaica and has been recording and showcasing live music from its historic Studio 1 for over 50 years.
In fact, during Kingston Music Week, the entire island will be able to participate in a live concert on RJR94FM from its studios on Wednesday, December 4.
