“In this economy and with so much competition for event patronage, we are excited to have our first sold out show. We have grown consistently over the years in terms of the production value, the level of talent and the audience turnout. There were also many tourists in the audience who indicated they would love to return to see the show next year,” she explained.

“So now we just need to get the financial sponsorship secured to make the event bigger, and at a level that will also attract visitors. We’ve got a great product and an international standard of talented vocalists and musicians. We’re ready to take it to the next level.”

The concert was a fundraiser for the developmental Honey Jam two-month program, which provides performance, networking, and mentoring and educational opportunities to young artists in Barbados.
