Top New York radio personality and head of Dahved Levy Promotions Inc, Dahved Levy, in partnership with title sponsors, CaribbeanFever.Com will stage the third 'ICONS'- Mother's Day Reggae Festival, featuring - Buju Banton, Barrington Levy, Super Cat and Friends on Saturday, May 10, 2008.

The Wamu at Madison Square Gardens which has a capacity seating of six Thousand, will house the event.

According to Dahved, "Patrons are booking flights and have been flying in from different countries and across different states in the U.S." He added that, "People have not seen Super Cat in action for a long time and this has created a major buzz about the show."

Levy asserted that in a continued effort to produce a classic and classy concert series, CaribbeanFever.Com brought three icons of reggae music together to compliment each other on one stage in mainstream territory.

"Part of our goal has been to move Caribbean music away from its usual community enclaves and into halls of prestige all across America," says Levy, who is host of the number one Caribbean Fever Show on 107.5 WBLS in New York. "This is necessary support for our aim to take our Caribbean music and culture to the next level in order to compete with other genres of music," he adds.

This showcasing of the Caribbean's musical icons began last year when CaribbeanFever.Com produced what was described as a phenomenal concert that featured Shabba Ranks, one of reggae music's first crossover artists and Buju Banton.

CaribbeanFever.Com then produced other highly successful shows such as 'Soca In The City' featuring Machel Montano thereby gaining acclaim as an organization of excellence.

"All CaribbeanFever.Com shows are always full of surprises," says Levy. "For instance, in last year's reggae icons in concert, the featured artists were Buju and Shabba. However, there were guest appearances by other artists including Lady Saw, Tony Matterhorn and Da'Ville.

Similarly, in the two previous sold-out Machel Montano concerts, fans were treated to surprise appearances from his friends, the likes of: Busta Rhymes, Doug E. Fresh, Shaggy, Mighty Sparrow, David Rudder and Pit Bull.

This year's ICONS concert will feature a special guest appearance by emerging artist, Kayla Bliss.
