    I was there for the above and I had a blast!!!

    Judah Tribe sounded good.
    The DJ from Reggae Retro took me back. Sweet old school reggae.
    In fact I was singing one song over and over on my way home.

    Nice crowd too. Good turnout.

    Message in the music from Judah Tribe
    In fact: Featured in the show was guitarist, Les Paultre who is the Father of Sean Bell's bride, Nichole Paultre-Bell.

    That man has skills on the guitar!!!
