The first week of the Skeleton Fresh Tour Live took place in Montego Bay two weeks ago, with the aim to revive the live music scene across the island, to promote Jamaica as a premiere tourist destination through music.

The series, which is set to visit 10 parishes across the island over the next 10 weeks, has already been generating excitement among music lovers.

Organisers Shelly-Ann Curran of John John Music Group and Billboard-charting recording artiste Stylez told The Gleaner that the series has been well-received so far. Curran revealed that the public is very excited about the shows as they will be given the opportunity to be exposed to some fresh talent. Up-and-coming artistes who are slated to perform on the series are just as excited.

Pointing out that they need more platforms to showcase their talent, the fresh acts on the show say they are grateful for the opportunity the tour has created for them. Delando Colley dubbed the tour “a dream” and said that as a young artiste, it will be a pleasure travelling from parish to parish bringing people good music. Fellow artistes Tamo J and Kim Nain agreed.

‘GREAT INITIATIVE’

“ The Skeleton Fresh Tour is a great initiative. As Jamaicans, we tend to overlook our own territory, so I’m honoured to be able to share and perform my music across Jamaica with a live band,” said Tamo J.

“The Skeleton Fresh Tour is one of the best ideas to become reality this year in the Jamaican music industry,” said Kim Nain.

“Many local acts would thrive with an opportunity like this to further expand their fan base on the local market while also developing their performance skills, and can further prepare us for major festivals and (help improve) our craft in general ​honoured to be able to share and perform my music across Jamaica with a live band,” said Tamo J. “The Skeleton Fresh Tour is one of the best ideas to become reality this year in the Jamaican music industry,” said Kim Nain. “Many local acts would thrive with an opportunity like this to further expand their fan base on the local market while also developing their performance skills, and can further prepare us for major festivals and our craft in general.”
