The highlight of 50th anniversary celebrations of The Harder They Come, held last Saturday at 10A West Kings House Road, was the medley-style rendition of the movie soundtrack’s title song at the tail end of the show. The group of artistes: Naomi Cowan, Carlene Davis, Dwight Richards, Kumar, Tony Rebel, Bounty Killer, Richie Spice, Alaine, and Tarrus Riley, backed by the incomparable Dean Fraser & Friends, had earlier in the evening thrilled the audience (which included entertainers not on the bill) with solo performances.
