MONTEGO BAY, St James — Internationally renowned reggae band Third World will perform at the Hard Rock Café Montego Bay on Saturday as part of the Montego Bay Boys' and Girls' Club 75th anniversary celebrations.

Dubbed the 'Club Rock All-Star Show', Third World, known for hits such as Now That We Found Love, Try Jah Love and 96 Degrees promises to deliver a strong set, with lead singer, Montego Bay's own AJ 'Boots' Brown, performing in front of a hometown crowd for the first time with the 'Reggae Ambassadors'.

Third World's drummer Tony Ruption is a product of the Montego Bay Boys' and Girls' Club, and the upcoming performance by the world-renowned band is the latest in a string of charitable contributions to the youth development organisation. The Club's own Tennshann Invasion Band, which has been enjoying success locally with their breakthrough single Good Morning Jamaica are also rostered to perform, while Mikki Ras Andy Vernon are also down to grace the stage.

The club, which was founded on August 4, 1942, has produced several notable musicians, sportsmen and women and academias, and has provided an environment for the development of at-risk youth from several volatile inner-city communities in Montego Bay.

Proceeds from the event have been earmarked for the club's further development with the acquisition of band equipment and improvements to its building.

Tickets are available for $2,000 pre-sold and at the gate, and outlets include Wright Life Live Food Eatery at Fairview, David and Subs Outfitters on Gloucester Ave, and El Paso Fashions in Sam Sharpe Square.

Showtime is set for 8:00 pm.
