Twin of Twins gives time to charity
Dancehall duo Twin of Twins will be joining forces with St Elizabeth-based promoter Jeffery 'CG' Smith to host the second staging of St Bess A Di Bess, which is a charity show.
The event will feature Vanessa Bling, Beenie Man, Bounty Killer, Junior Reid, Ninja Man, and others.
"We have been promoting a few events for some time, however, not on this scale. But because our events are always supported, it encouraged us to upgrade," Twin of Twins' Patrick Gaynor told THE WEEKEND STAR.
"The major motivation was to give part proceeds to our roots in terms of building and sustaining vital infrastructure beginning with our old school, Russell All-Age and CG's Brompton Primary. This initiative came when we met Jeffeth Smith, who is also a respected member of the St Bess community, who also prioritised the well-being of its less fortunate."
The event will be hosted tonight at the Brompton playing field, which is located close to Holland Bamboo.
To purchase tickets for St Bess a Di Bess, patrons may visit Allen's Texaco in Santa Cruz or CG's Sports Bar in Brompton.
"Our goals for this event are to ensure the continuance of our declining music culture by providing a platform to showcase, not only authentic reggae and dancehall, but also young and upcoming local talents, a show that takes fun and excitement to another level, and also to see St Bess a Di Bess take its place among the highly celebrated shows," Gaynor said.
