An energetic dose of great entertainment was injected in the Cornwall Beach venue in Montego Bay when the weeklong music festival Reggae Sumfest hosted their beach party to kick start the musical activities.
It was not a ‘bare as you dare’ type of party on the beach but the Errol Lee and the Bare Essentials Band undressed the crowd’s appetite for excellent entertainment and it helped to keep the night interesting as they did their set at regular intervals of the show. The group’s aptitude for performing held the Sumfest crowd’s attention and had patrons dancing to reggae, soca and Dancehall.
Early bird performers such as the group Soul 4 Soul and new artiste Notorious powered their way with their vocals to entertain locals and tourist alike who came out for a great package of upcoming dancehall and reggae acts. Thug Ras did a short but effective stint onstage while Mixing Lab had emcee Ms. Kitty dancing to his beats.
In her first appearance on the Reggae Sumfest stage 2010 Magnum Queen of Dancehall winner Bumpa gave an excellent performance which earned her a place in the music industry.
“It was good” an outspoken Bumpa told The STAR after her performance. “It’s not my first major show but it is my first time performing on the Sumfest Stage and it went well, I still have a lot of work to do but overall I am pleased with the performance and the response I got from the crowd” the female artiste concluded.
Life is not as dread anymore for the Magnum King of Dancehall Press Fyah who had the crowd rocking to his single Life So Dread. His smooth but effective take on his musical endevours continue to see his fan base grow as he displayed his onstage versatility in mixing a bit of his deejaying skills in his performance.
Dance Xpressions gave an energetic dance performance while comedians Ity and Fancy Cat had locals and tourist rolling on the sand with laughter which earned them and encore. Brown Sugar closed the beach party in fine style as she showed with her powerful vocals and stage presence.
