Tribute to the songwriter in Kingston.

Bob Andy Unplugged was held Friday, October 25th at the Karl Hendrickson auditorium, Jamaica College, Kingston. The event was well attended and saw over twenty-nine artiste doing their interpretation of songs written by one of Jamaica’s most prolific songwriters. The show brought out singers both from the era when these classics were recorded to some of our current  generation of reggae artiste.

On several occasions through the night the audience stood up to pay homage to the man who has helped to shape Jamaica reggae music.

Unplugged which was divided into  three segments saw the likes of Desi Jones & the All Star Reggae band, Lloyd Parks & We the People along with backing orchestra led by Peter Ashbourne & Ibo Cooper. Every artiste billed performed extremely well. However, those who took it up a notch were Ken Boothe, Chevaugn Clayton, Marcia Griffiths, Protoje, Big Youth, Nadine Sutherland & Freddie McGregor. Before the curtains came down Marcia Griffiths made a surprise announcement that it was also the singer’s sixty seventh birthday.  The attentive audience rose to the occasion and joined in the singing of Happy Birthday in Ms. Lou’s style.
