Music

Our music promotions have grown from a one night a week Reggae show to multiple nights per week including one time events, ticketed concerts and benefits shows. Working with artists such as Phil Driscoll (below) and the many former and current touring and recording professionals has made our music events stand apart from the normal run-of-the-mill events.
