Jazz Fest begins soon

Cayman Jazz Fest will take place at Pageant Beach on 4 December.

Although Jazz Fest features a number of internationally-acclaimed artists, the festival also takes great pride in having Cayman’s jazz, pop and soul artists share the stage with the globally recognized stars.

The list of performers at Jazz Fest will include:

Stuart Wilson, who is best known for his many performances in both the Cayman Islands and Great Britain with his band, Love Culture.

Wilson & Love Culture have opened for acts such as Damian Marley, Richie Spice, Beres Hammond and a host of others.

Jonathan Ebanks, who has opened for Chaka Khan, Third World, Ziggy Marley, Lucky Dube, Steel Pulse, Maxi Priest and many others.

Ebanks’ latest album “Tales of the G-string” is set to be released in December.

Impulz, a band performs regularly at The Ritz Carlton, Grand Cayman and other five star venues will also be performing.

Band members include Rex Watler, Edward Frederick, Mark Hydes, Stephen McDermott, Stephanie Webster, Darrell Carter and Doug Whitfield.

‘The Friday night concert promises to be a dynamic show,’ said Acting Director of Tourism, Shomari Scott.

‘The Department of Tourism has always supported Cayman’s artists and we are glad that there are so many talented performers who can add a truly unique dimension to Cayman jazz fest.’
