Jagra GT Taylor Christmas Extravaganza: the show must go on

No Comments
The year  2011 has been one in which recession has been the main profiler in the videolight and  the production of mammoth dancehall shows has declined significantly. However,  the promoters of the event  which has what is  arguably  the longest title  - Jagra  GT Taylor Christmas Extravaganza - have declared that recession or no recession, the show must go on.
Production is therefore  in high gear for this eagerly anticipated calendar event, held annually at Independence Park, Black River, St Elizabeth. Now celebrating its 12th staging, the show will continue with the theme that heralded its mega successful 10thanniversary, 'Caring and Sharing Through Music'.
The promoter is still savouring the success of last year's show, which pundits agree was the best show for the season, and which Taylor says was the best Christmas Extravaganza in the event's history. He had words of commendation for the sponsors, in particular title sponsor Jagra, the artistes, the band, the production team and, of course, the patrons.
 GT has promised that there will be lots of Christmas cheer  for 'Extravaganza' patrons come December 25, 2011. Asked if he would be jumping into his Santa Claus suit which is gathering dust, his answer was a decisive "No". He did point out, however, that Old St Nick comes in many forms and the sponsors will be sure to have goodies to give away, while the artistes will deliver special entertainment  packages to their  fans. 
As a matter of fact, the artiste line-up sports all the big - and not-so-big - names in reggae/dancehall  music. Among them are Mavado, Bounty Killer, I-Octane, Coco Tea, John Holt,  Spice, Romain Virgo, Hezron, Chuck Fenda, Twin of Twins, Macka Diamond, Wayne Marshall, Iley Dread, D'Angel, Lutan Fyah, Professor Nuts, Warrior King, Toya, Villa Dutch, Tiana, Specialist and a host of others.
