Damian 'Jr Gong' Marley gave a superb performance on the final night of the three day Jazz and Blues event. Marley closed the event with a scorching set when he took to the stage on sunday morning. 

Jr Gong was accompanied by a back up singer and a flag man and delivered hits from his catalogue as well as his father's catalogue.   

Marley shared the stage with saxophonist Dean Frazer and international artiste Bobby Brown. Marley and Brown performed their hit single 'Beautiful' and had the audience singing along to the words.  Jr Gong's mother, Cindy Breakspeare stood to the side of the stage and sang word for word during her son's performance. 

Jr Gong also called on his brother Stephen Marley to perform four songs with him. Stephen then called on his son Joseph aka Jo Mersa who gave a good performance as the new Marley generation. Black Am I also joined Jo Mersa on stage and thrilled the audience with a commendable performance. 

Artiste Cee Lo Green preceded Jr Gong on stage and gave a stellar performance. He belted out popular hits such as 'F You', 'Crazy' and 'Bigger City'. 

Trinidadian artiste Destra Garcia also gave a high energy performance. The soca queen showed her vocal range when she covered songs from Whitney Houston's catalogue.

Heads of State also took fans on an hour long musical journey and serenaded several women at the front of the audience with red roses. 

Overall the Jazz and Blues festival was a top notch event which delivered exceptional performances from the artistes.
