Tarrus ready for jazz festival

 Reggae star Tarrus Riley is ready to hit the Speyside stage today to start the  Tobago Jazz Experience. 

At a press conference yesterday at the Tobago House of Assembly’s Division of Tourism and Transportation, 12 Sangster’s Hill, Scarborough, Riley said he’s “coming to give smiling vibes,” and added, “The audience should expect a “live in concert vibes; reggae music in fine style.” 

Claire Davidson-Williams, administrator of the division, gave a warm welcome to Riley, saying “We hope you enjoy and love Tobago as much as we do,” while adding, “The Experience offers ‘much more than music, it highlights our culture, our food, our people and our beaches.”

Secretary Tracy Davidson-Celestine, for whom Riley sang “She’s Royal” last August, anticipates “a mammoth crowd at Speyside” where he will “palance and mash up the place.” Davidson-Celestine added, “The Tobago Jazz Experience is about celebrating our culture and our unique and historical experiences here in beautiful Tobago.” 

She further highlighted benefits can be gained from TJE through entrepreneurship and fostering the community spirit. Today’s event at Speyside Recreation Ground is free. It begins at 

5 p.m.
