Let’s get together and feel all right
Bob Marley would have been 67-years-old on February 6. Unfortunately, he died of cancer at 36-years-old, but his memory lives on in songs like ‘Redemption Song’, ‘One Love’, ‘Three Little Birds’ and countless others.
To celebrate his legacy On Point Productions and Party Animal have organised a two day ‘One Love Festival’ at Barr’s Bay in Hamilton Park starting tomorrow.
“Let’s celebrate and honour a man who put his heart into his music impacting nations through his message of ‘One Love’,” said organiser Sakeena Talbot. “The need to draw into this message from this peace maker, singer and song writer Robert Nesta Marley is more prevalent than ever before with all the violence going on in the community. All walks of life are invited, young and old to have an irie time and know the everliving truth behind the man, his music, and his mission.”
This two day festival will give patrons the opportunity to be educated in healthier lifestyle choices, cultural awareness and historical facts while embracing the music in a safe, comfortable environment.
The concert also has a charitable arm. All attendees are asked to bring in either two cans of nonperishable goods, or two pieces of clothing or shoes (winter or spring) that are in excellent condition. The clothing items will be donated to Hands of Love, and the food to Meals on Wheels. Charities Chewstick Foundation, The Centre and The Bermuda Sloop Foundation are also involved with the event.
There will be live entertainment, unreleased footage of Bob Marley, Caribbean food, dancing, kids zones, a ring tones booth, arts and crafts and much more.
“We are inviting you to be a part of this experience,” said Ms Talbot. “The event will feature live bands, Exclusive Charters’ spa boat, cooking demonstrations, The Moblet Riders, a drum circle and a VIP area. The difference between this event and others will be the experience.
“On Point Productions and Party Animal have done everything possible to ensure that the event is well balanced, with atmosphere and entertainment. There will always be something happening that entices all that are in attendance. Let’s get together and feel all right.”
The festival will be held tomorrow and Saturday from 10am to 3am. Tickets are $55 for a two day pass and $25 for one day. Discounts available when purchasing ten or more tickets or passes at www.bdatix.bm. For more information contact Sakeena Talbot at 538-7653 or onelovebermuda[AT]gmail.com.
