It features several top acts including Marcia Griffiths, Everton Blender, Glen Washington and Chino McGregor.The event will be held at Port Charlotte Fair Grounds, a venue not known for hosting reggae shows.

The song and album of the same name were produced by his mentor, Clement “Coxson” Dodd, at Studio One.He had a string of hit songs during the 1980s including Big Ship, All in The Same Boat, Push Come to Shove and Just Don’t Want to be Lonely.McGregor has also promoted a number of shows in Jamaica, South Florida and Long Beach, California.They include the Long Beach Reggae Music Jerk and Food Festival, and Rocksteady Meets Reggae and Dancehall in Clarendon, his native parish in Jamaica. “I love organizing and executing, it usually gives me a little rush.
