THE New Mas Camp venue at Stadium East in St Andrew was jam-packed with patrons for Saturday's second attempt at Heineken Good Times "House Paarty". And, it was well worth the wait.

Last week's staging was postponed by rains associated with Tropical Storm Isaac.

"We are happy and quite pleased with the turnout, especially due to the fact that we had to postpone," said Carlette DeLeon, Good Times publistist told the Jamaica Observer. "We look forward to our final staging of the event on December 1."

Disc jocks Denvo and Marvin set the pace for the evening with the early juggling. Large screens were erected that showed '70s sitcom Good Times and '90s movie House Party.

However, it was old-school artistes Powerman, Flourgon, and veteran Jah Thomas performance that brought the audience together.

Powerman, whose real name is Michael Davy, was first out the blocks. He delivered his 1991 hit song Stone as well as Slim and Trim, Serious Tings, Miss Kill and Bury, and Gal A Call much to the delight of the patrons.

Flourgon [Michael May], who ruled the airwaves in the late 1980s and 1990s, went through a medley of his hit songs which included Hol A Fresh, Bounce, We Run Things, Love Me Girl Bad; Jump Spread Out, and Big Batty Gyal. Flourgon also performed his brother's, Red Dragon [Leroy May], tunes including Kun Kum Kum and Bun Them.

Veteran artiste Jah Thomas [Nkrumah Thomas] delivered Shoulder Move among others.

After the live performances, the disc jocks then resumed the party vibes until the police came calling. The party came to a close at 3:40 am.



Do you think an increase in JUTC bus fares is justified at this time?
