ORGANISERS of Frydayz at the Grove are looking to capitalise on the rich and often overlooked musical history of that particular corner of Half-Way-Tree Road.

The first in the series takes place this evening at Grove Road Kingston 2B (GRK2B).

Conceptualiser Lloyd Evans shared his vision behind the series.

“Grove Road has played an integral role in the development of many of Jamaica's artistes and their music. The venue's rich history is revered by many in the entertainment business, and this is what we're looking to revive with this and other projects,” said Evans.

The first instalment will feature performances from guitarist Earl “Chinna” Smith and rocksteady powerhouse Ken Boothe, as well as Mark Wonder. Gabre Selassie of Kingston Dub Club fame as well as deejay Welton Irie ( Army Life) will be on hand as selectors.

“Our vision for GRK2B will be unveiled in phases and will begin with a series of quality entertainment events showcasing established, new and aspiring musicians, selectors, artistes and other performers,” Evans added.
