 FREE CONCERT “ENTERTAINERS AGAINST CRIME & VIOLENCE"

 FREE CONCERT “ENTERTAINERS AGAINST CRIME & VIOLENCE"

With great concern about crime, especially in western Jamaica, Mackie Conscious and a team of entertainers and musicians have collaborated with Queen Ifrika, who also hails from Montego Bay, holding similar concerns, will host a Free Major concert dubbed “ ENTERTAINERS AGAINST CRIME & VIOLENCE” to be held at Dump up beach Sunday, December 4, 2016 starting at 3:00 p.m.

This event is designed to have the major Jamaican recording artistes, both home and abroad, participate in donating their time to activate a Call to Action from the music fraternity that we need a change. For too long we have been losing too many of our valuable Jamaicans through crime and violence. This has placed Jamaica in a position that is crippling all sectors of our society, for example: Music, Tourism, businesses, families. This situation is grossly affecting the entire economy. 

To date we have a list of over 50 branded entertainers from which to choose and who are expected to make themselves available live or via video link on a large screen. This list include some who have already confirmed: Beres Hammond, Marcia Griffiths, Diana King, Tony Rebel, Queen Ifrika, Mackie Conscious, Spice, Ninja Man, Shaggy, Sean Paul, Beenie Man, I Octain,  Jimmy Cliff, Mutabaruka, Hezron, Carlene Davis, Lt. Stichie, Kevin Dowenswell, just to name a few. 

We have come to the conclusion that music is one of the greatest influences, both negatively and positively, which has played a role in the development of this generation. We are also cognizant of the fact that in the escalation of crime and violence in the society, music’s negative lyrical content is a contributory factor. 

The St. James Police, the Parish Council and the UDC have already given us full support. 

We intend to have an Entertainers Motorcade and reasoning session on the day of the event through the troubled communities. Following the event, we anticipate with the help of corporate Jamaica, to launch an initiative to revisit the communities with an offer of support with academic advancements and skills training to the youth.

A third imitative to be launched later, as it relates to keeping an eye on the entire entertainment coming from the fraternity, will be to better assist in the inspiration of the youth and promote quality of music, impacting Brand Jamaica.

WE HAVE ALREADY SECURED COMMITMENTS FROM:  (JOHN SWABY) SOUNDS LIGHT AND STAGE, MELLO FM, WESTERN MIRROR, KNUTSFORD EXPRESS, IRIE FM RADIO, REBEL SALUTE FOUNDATION, MODERN SEWER AND DRAIN SERVICE, AND AWAIT CONFIRMATION FROM MANY OTHER PERSONS WHO THROUGH SUPPORTING THIS VENTURE WILLINGLY EXPRESS THEIR DISSATISFACTION WITH CRIME.

Due to the nature of this major production,  we are now seeking Corporate Jamaica partnership in financing this production.

Our team consist of Ian Lammie (production) who is very experienced in professional productions (including Jamaica Jazz and Pace Entertainment); Mark Clarke (Luciano’s former Touring Manager responsible for Artist Connection); Conroy Walker of Persons of Interest Band; Carl Edwards of Live Wyya (in charge of rehearsals and bands connection); George Thomas of Bung Guh Lhung band, another musician responsible for security, grounds and medical assistance (Medical affiliate).
