COGNISANT of midnight lock-off time, headliners Capleton and Jah Vinci thoroughly entertained patrons attending Hennessy Artistry Acoustic on the lawns of the Sky Dweller Ultra Lounge in Kingston on Thursday evening.

Backed by the High Symbol Band and accompanied by saxophonist Tafane, both artistes left the audience begging for more.

According Capleton, it was his first acoustic performance and his first live performance in Kingston for some time.

“I didn't get enough time, that was my only problem. I have like a next 10 or 15 songs that I rehearsed, but it was joy. It's been a while since I have been in Kingston performing up-close and personal like this and the fans definitely enjoyed it. I would certainly do it again,” he told Jamaica Observer. “Anything for the music.”

In true Capleton style, he closed the show on a literally high note with his flying-like jumps and great music. His almost hour-long set included songs such as Small World, Jah Jah City and S lew Dem.

Jah Vinci's performance was inclusive of There for Me, Watch Yuh Friends, Mi Feel A Way, Mama Love and his latest song Heart Too Clean. He also invited Nordia Mothersille for a cameo during his set.

Speaking with the Observer, he said he was pleased to connect with his audience.

“A just fi show the people dem who me is like the individual on a day-to-day basis, dealing with people, dealing with mi problem them so me try fi bring me to the people and I feel I delivered a great set. The aim was to motivate people and give them a blessed set,” he said.

Both Capleton and Jah Vinci said they are working on new music for their fans. Nevertheless, their supporters were pleased with the showcase of their older works.

“Jah Vinci really touched me, his songs always feel so spiritual, I loved every part of tonight,” said Ann Marie Peart.

Her sentiments were seconded by Tony Ewart, who was particularly pleased with Capleton.

“Mi pay $3,000 and see Capleton mash up the place. It was definitely worth it. Nothing can beat live performances in Jamaica,” he expressed.
