Triple treat for moms
GOLDEN Promotions Ltd, organisers of Tropicana Tropics To Mom With Love concert, promise a triple treat for patrons attending the show at the LIME Golf Academy, New Kingston, tomorrow.
"We have three international acts for a strong line-up," Marvin Pitterson, event promoter told the Jamaica Observer at the press launch at the ATL Automotive's Honda showroom on Hagley Park Road, on Thursday.
The show, now in its 11th year, will see international headline acts Dr Hook, Dorothy Moore, and Glenn Jones. The show will also feature Karen Smith, Errol Dunkley, Pat Kelly, Gem Myers, Kconeil, Tahj, Patrick Badoo and Robert Minott. Added entertainment will come from Fab 5, Mutabaruka and Silver Birds Steelband.
Pitterson said that the success of the long-running Mother's Day concert series was due to the quality of acts chosen each year.
"I try to go as far back as the '70s when looking into who we should have on the show," Pitterson explained.
Present at the launch were Karen Smith and Tahj to give the small crowd a taste of Sunday's experience. Also in attendance was Glen Jones, who was making his second trip to Jamaica.
"I haven't been to Kingston since sometime in the '80s, but fans can expect the same quality of performance live as they did on my original recordings," Jones said.
Tropicana Tropics To Mom With Love is also being staged in conjunction with the Kingston & St Andrew Corporation (KSAC) indicating the distinguished patronage of the Mayor of Kingston, her worship Angela Brown Burke.
"The KSAC is delighted to be associated with To Mom With Love as it aligns with our aims of providing wholesome family entertainment. More importantly, Golden Promotions gives back to the community," she said.
