ALL is set for tonight's benefit concert, Caribbean Love Now Jamathon, slated for the National Indoor Sports Centre in St Andrew. Showtime is 7:00 pm.

“We're ready come rain or shine. We're hoping people will leave work and come as the production will be like you've never seen before. It will be an unforgettable experience,” conceptualiser Josef Bogdanovich told Jamaica Observer yesterday.

“'Caribbean Love Now' is about giving love to our Caribbean brothers and sisters... so it'll be an evening of great and uplifting music and giving back to those who need it the most,” he continued.

Proceeds from the event will assist in bolstering relief efforts for the Caribbean islands ravaged by the recent passage of Hurricanes Maria and Irma. The latter, a category five hurricane, claimed at least 134 lives and US$62.87 billion in damage.

An all-star cast is billed to perform, which includes: Agent Sasco; Beenie Man; Beres Hammond; Blvck H3ro; Bunji Garlin; Bunny Wailer; Carlene Davis; Chi-Ching Ching; Chino McGregor; Christopher Martin; D-Major; Devin Di Dakta; Etana; Fay-Ann Lyons; Freddie McGregor; Harry Toddler; Iba Mahr; Jah Cure; Jesse Royal; Kevin Downswell; Naomi Cowan; Nesbeth; Protoje; Raging Fyah; Romain Virgo; Sizzla; Sean Paul; Stephen McGregor; Tarrus Riley; Third World; Tommy Lee Sparta; Toots and the Maytals; and Vegas.

“What we're doing is so rewarding... and the artistes recognise and feel good about giving back, as many of our Caribbean neighbours embraced many of them when they were up-and-coming acts. So our mission is to unite the Caribbean as a block and to show who we are to the world,” said Bogdanovich.

The American businessman and Downsound Records executive said the event will be streamed live.

“Our target is to activate our international fan base, who love our reggae and dancehall music... we're hoping to get a lot of people to donate,” he added.
