Saint Lu­cia Jazz Eases Cliff Hang­ers!

The Star (St. Lucia) - - LOCAL -

Toni Ni­cholas into such com­po­nents as the “open­ing” af­ter the fail­ure of “Pop­cann” who head­lined that event last year. Hav­ing artistes like Beres Ham­mond, who has a reper­toire of sing-along hits which can carry through for over two hours, is also a plus. My only point of cau­tion would be to al­low Robin Thicke to close over Jimmy Cliff. This, I pre­dict, will be as cat­a­strophic as last year’s Maxwell fi­nale. True, Thicke cur­rently has a lot of mus­cle in the in­dus­try and his name alone is sure to cre­ate much buzz and ex­cite­ment among his mil­lions of Twit­ter and Instagram fol­low­ers but as a closing act and to bring out the vo­cal fire­works to end the fes­ti­val on May 10, Jimmy Cliff must be the man. That said, over­all I think the line-up is a good one and hope­fully the fes­ti­val which runs from April 30 to May 10, 2015 will again be the talk of the town, not just in Saint Lu­cia but across the re­gion and in­ter­na­tion­ally too.

Jimmy Cliff and Robin Thicke, two of the big names for the

2015 Saint Lu­cia Jazz & Arts Fes­ti­val.
