ORGANIZERS REPORT BRISK TICKET SALES FOR GROOVIN 2018

 

Jamaica Entertainment  News– “We got off to an early start this year and I am happy to report that we are ahead of schedule in ticket sales and areas that are critical to having a successful festival,” said Christopher Robert, founder and CEO of Groovin Inc.

Over the past 7 years, the annual festival has presented a dazzling array of R&B and pop talent including international legends Michael Bolton, Air Supply, Gladys Knight, Patti Labelle, Babyface, Peabo Bryson, Regina Belle, Billy Ocean, Brian McKnight and R Kelly. On the reggae side, we have presented Beres Hammond, Freddie McGregor, U Roy, Jimmy Cliff, Steel Pulse, Bob Andy, Morgan Heritage, Chronixx, Mavado, Toots, Reggae Queen Marcia Griffiths, Judy Mowatt, Beenie Man, Stitchie, Busy Signal and many other luminaries.

One subtle change patrons attending the 2018 concert will observer is a bigger focus on reggae.

“This year we are putting the focus solidly on reggae” Roberts stated.

“In our informal survey that we conduct each year, patrons have consistently asked to see more reggae acts. With the focus squarely on reggae, I am pleased to announce that for the first time in the history of the festival, a soon to be confirmed reggae artist will be the closing act” he continued.

This comes after Groovin executives were able to negotiate a written commitment from the New York Park’s department that the show will go until 9:30 pm – 90 minutes longer than the normal 8 pm cut off time.

Confirmed acts for Groovin In The Park 2018 are Grammy award-winning artist Kenny ‘Babyface’ Edmonds, Busy Signal, Romain Virgo and Capleton.
