Restau­rant Week de­liv­ers GOOD MU­SIC

Jamaica Gleaner - - FEATURE - Tick­oya Joseph Gleaner Writer

MANY CAN tes­tify that mu­sic sets the tone or mood for any oc­ca­sion. Un­doubt­edly, with 85 plus restau­rants par­tic­i­pat­ing in the 12th stag­ing of Restau­rant Week, restau­ra­teurs would seek to add some­thing ex­tra to at­tract more peo­ple. Black Or­chid Restau­rant and JoJo’s Jerk Pit and More cap­i­talised on this as both had live bands last Satur­day night.

Sen­sual sounds from the key­board cou­pled with the per­fect re­la­tion­ship be­tween the drum­mer and the guitarist of Ifi­del and Friends gave the pa­trons of Black Or­chid a lit­tle more spice to their din­ing ex­pe­ri­ence.

Lead singer Ifi­del Wil­liams gave the ladies goose bumps that might have trig­gered a lit­tle jeal­ousy in their male coun­ter­parts as he had them hang­ing on to his ev­ery note.

JoJo’s surely de­liv­ered as din­ers were treated to sweet sounds of reg­gae by the band. Per­sons in­dulging in the guilty plea­sures of JoJo’s Restau­rant Week menu moved with the in­fec­tious rhythms as they were thrilled by the sweet sounds com­ing from the lips of Azuri, who sang songs such as Charley Pride’s Some­one Loves You Honey. She also had per­sons fooled as she belted the notes of ‘If you knew’, sound­ing like the icon Mar­cia Grif­fiths. Lo­cal singer DKru also had the au­di­ence rock­ing to Buju Ban­ton’s Brownin and Driver, along with other Ja­maican reg­gae hits.

DKru de­liv­ers Buju Ban­ton’s ‘Driver’ at JoJo’s Jerk Pit and More last Satur­day. AT Top: Azuri belts out Charley Pride’s ‘Some­one Loves You Honey’.
