Moses Davis jazzed up Beenie Man


TRELAWNY, Jamaica -- Dancehall Deejay Beenie Man brought the curtains down on night one of the Jamaica Jazz and Blues Festival Thursday in Trelawny.


Billed as "The Other Side of Moses Davis", there was very little difference between the deejay and his alter ego. However, it was clear some thought was put into his performance with both the artiste and his backing band sporting tuxedos, the addition of a saxophonist and violinist into his band and a softening of the introduction to some of his popular numbers, to bring about a jazzy feel, befitting the name of the event.

Being the showman he is, the deejay was able to entertain the patrons who had the stamina to endure the presentation which went way past 2:00 am.

The self- proclaimed King of the Dancehall's performance featured selections in diverse genres of music, spanning country & western, calypso, gospel and dancehall.

Among the artiste’s jazzed up tracks were ‘Nuff Gyal’, ‘Wickedest Slam’, ‘Girls dem Sugar’ and ‘Blackboard’. He scored well with his older hits such as ‘Gal inna Bungle’, ‘Wickedest Slam’ and ‘Romey’.

The music festival continues on Friday and Saturday with international artistes Toni Braxton, Crystal Gayle, Chaka Khan, The O'Jays and Chrisette Michell as well as locals Protoje, Beres Hammond and Della Manley.
