THE final Footloose retro-party for 2017 is set to unfold next Saturday, December 16, at the Mas Camp, Stadium North in St Andrew.

Dubbed the Showtime Edition, the event will feature a performance from dancehall veteran Beenie Man.

“We are pulling out all the stops to make this an extra special one for our patrons. It's Christmas and this is our way of saying thanks to our patrons for their continuous support,” promoter Tyrone Dixon of Broadway Productions told Jamaica Observer.

While not revealing who will be in charge of the retro music that patrons have come to appreciate at all Footloose parties, Dixon hinted that patrons can expect to be taken on a musical voyage.

We want to take the patrons on a musical voyage back in time as they relive the hits that they danced to while reliving some great memories,” he said.

Beenie Man, who ruled the dancehall in the 1990s, is expected to unleash his large catalogue of chart toppers including World Dance, Old Dog, Zim Zimma (Who Am I) and Back It Up.

Sponsored by Stones Ginger Wine, this is the fourth staging of Footloose for the year. The series continues to attract loyal patrons with each staging since its inception in 2006.
