Red Strip Bold 2010

New Kingston came alive with Red Stripe Bold holding its free block concert last Sunday from 6 p.m. until 9 p.m. Knutsford Boulevard was jam packed with thousands of patrons who came out to see their favorite artistes and they were not disappointed as they were all treated to complimentary Red Stripe beer throughout the event. Hosted by the lovely Kiki and DJ Jazzy T, the audience was treated to musical selections from Renaissance, Copper Shot and ZJ Liquid.

I Octane was the first act to perform and treated the audience to a number of his current hits such as Mama You Alone, Best From West and Lose A Friend. Though short, his fifteen minute stint was packed with energy and had the crowd all worked up for the next act.

Tarrus Riley followed and immediately went into high gear. He delivered songs like Protect The People, Human Nature and called on stage surprise act Konshens to do Good Girls Gone Bad. The light rain which began could not dampen the spirit of the crowd as thousands stood still.

Lady Saw hit the stage singing a number of her past and current hits including Its Raining, Sycamore Tree and others. Dressed in heels and wig to match she took them off in the middle of her performance declaring that age is just a number and she is still going strong.

Baby Cham who has not been performing in Jamaica in recent times thrilled the crowd with his vast catalogue of dancehall selections complemented by his awesome dance moves. The audience shifted in frenzy when he invited his long time friend Bounty Killa to do their hit Another Level and other hits.

The show was brought to closure by Vybz Kartel and his protégés Pop Caan and Shawn Storm.
