The National Stadium in Trinidad and Tobago was recently packed 9000 strong with Marley fans who basked in the rhythms of the talented, Damian "Junior Gong" Marley and Stephen "Ragga" Marley at Summerfest. Also featuring Trinidad and Tobago based acts such as Royal Dainties, Jah Melody, King David, Orange Sky and DJs the Lion Twins, the show was a massive success, in the opinion of promoter, Roy Maharaj.

Damian started with "Confrontation", the first song on his album then moved into "Justice" then was joined by his brother Stephen for "Traffic Jam" followed by "Pimpers Paradise". Singing along and just thrilled to the bone, the maximum capacity crowd, especially those in the all inclusive VIP section were served up a healthy dose of Marley music.

Continuing with songs like, "It Was Written," "Could You Be Loved,"" Road To Zion" and closing the show with "Welcome To Jamrock," the Marley's proved once more in Trinidad and Tobago that apples do not fall far from the tree. "It really went well," one concert goer remarked, saying the show was one of the best she had attended.
