Stress free in 3D concert

Time to let your hair down and let
go of the stress of the week.

On Saturday, 4 September, Stress
Free in 3D Live comes to Pedro St. James, courtesy of the Bodden Town District
Council, in association with the Cayman Music and Entertainment Association.

The free concert will feature
internationally renowned sensation Duane Stephenson, as well as Gramps Morgan
and Tinga Stewart.

The Bodden Town District Council
thought it was high time for a community event of this type.

“After careful thought, we have
decided there is a necessity for an event that will make citizens feel appreciated
and allow them to relieve their stress,” says a statement from the council.

The music to relieve stress
showcases Stephenson, best known for the smash hit August Town, which
chronicles his life as a young man in the violent and unpredictable streets of
Jamaica and how he escaped the embrace of gang life through the spiritual
doctrine of his Rastafarian faith.

Also filling the bill are Morgan,
from the popular reggae group Morgan Heritage, and Stewart. Both artists are
known the world over, with Morgan enjoying massive mainstream success along
with his brothers and sisters in the Morgan Heritage line-up and now on his
latest project, a solo offering entitled, 2 Sides of My Heart.

Stewart is no stranger to crowds in
the Cayman Islands, having performed in a number of notable shows for audiences
here throughout the years.

Featured local acts include The iZ,
Lammie, Impulz Band, Bona Fide, Big J, Notch and the Local Motion Band, the
North Side Kitchen Band and Stuart Wilson and band.  

A turtle stew cook-off and teen jam
that begins at 5pm will be held in a separate area of the facility as a prelude
to the main event, which is slated to begin at 7pm.

In addition to the turtle tasting
festivities, visitors will be able to make donations to various Bodden Town
District Council initiatives via drop boxes, each of which will illustrate
their respective cause.

“This is the council’s heartfelt
effort to bring the whole island together at a time when everyone seems to be
feeling the stress and pressures of everyday life,” said Bodden Town District
Council Chairman Mario Rankin, who added that some of the donations on the day
would be going toward the procurement of a park and helping those less
fortunate in the community.

LIME will also be on
hand giving away credit, phones and T-shirts. Other sponsors include the Caymanian
Compass, CUC, Consolidated Water Company, Redi-Mix Concrete, Kent Rankin,
Sunshine Suites, Quick Images, Hopscotch Studios, Western Union, Water Boys,
Renard Moxam, the Ministry of Culture and Public’s Ltd.
