Thousands of Gregory Isaacs fans will tonights converge on Mass Camp in Kingston for a special tribute to the late reggae icon.
“Gregory had a particular liking for Stars R Us as he said it keep the vintage artiste busy,” said Horse Man, CEO for Stars R Us.
The theme for the night will be red and white. According to the promoter, this tribute show was only fitting considering Isaacs’ 23 dazzling displays on the Stars R Us stage.
The event will see performances by some veteran reggae artists such as John Holt, Leroy Sibbles, Pat Kelly, Johnny Clarke, Nikki Dillon, George Nooks, Josey Wales, Derrick Morgan, Tinga Stewart, Ernest Wilson, and Carl Dawkins.
The first 2000 paying patrons to enter the venue will receive a free Gregory Isaacs colour poster.
Backing band will be Lloyd Parks & We The People Band, while Bob Clarke from Irie FM and Camile will host the event.
Throughout the night there will be an exclusive mixture of different Gregory Isaacs songs, which will be played by the Cutting Edge master Mutabaruka. At mid-night, there will be a moment of silence remembering Gregory.
