THE east Kingston-based Reddie's Place of Safety, located in Rollington Town, will be the beneficiary from part-proceeds of the inaugural staging of 'Ribbittt'.

'Ribbittt' — which is one of the events being promoted under the Reggae Month banner — is scheduled for Saturday, February 11, at the Wavz Beach in Negril.

The event is a co-promotion between the promoters the old school-themed 'Original Dancehall Thursdays' event (Music Town) and Fortis Kings. It features a cadre of acts who reigned on the musical landscape in the 1980s, 1990s, and early 2000s.

"We're more than happy to partner with Music Town to promote this event to give the people in western Jamaica a taste of the original dancehall vibes. We want the patrons to come out and experience old-school dancehall entertainment in fine style therefore, we are going all out to make this event a top-notch production," said a spokesperson for Fortis Kings.

'Ribbittt' will feature performances from the likes of Peter Metro, Josey Wales, Professor Nuts, Luciano, I-Wayne, Andy Livingston, and Principal Grundeh.

"We want to give the patrons attending "Ribbittt" nothing but the absolute best, therefore we've put together an exciting entertainment package that includes some of the best acts with a large catalogue of songs," the spokesperson added.
