Jah Cure's Performance in Holland BOOM!!!


What a show. Excellent band, including Dean Fraser as the director of the bunch, with Jah Cure giving an excellent set; wicked performance. All big tunes, audience very excited, Cure loving it too, lovely combo with Jah Mason (Run Come Love Me), Cure's voice sounded great live too. Very nice moment to witness, his first full performance after release (no need for discussing details of that again, been there). Tunes played were Longing For, Jah Bless Me, Jamaica, King In This Jungle, Run Come Love Me (feat. Jah Mason), Jamaica, What Will It Take, Good Morning Jah Jah, I'm Still Around, Reflections, Ghetto Life, Sticky, Love Is and maybe one or two more I can't recall now. My highlight of this year's festival no doubt!

Overall a good festival with stand-out performances for me by Natural Black, Tony Rebel, Bunny Wailer and Jah Cure. Mafia & Fluxy did a great job backing Gregory Isaacs, but the man himself had some throat-problems and didn't sound too good, nice to seem him still. Also nice to see acts like Marcia Griffiths, Tarrus Riley, Yellowman, Gyptian, LUST, Lutan Fyah (wasn't as good as previous time), Jah Mason (replaced Richie Spice), Capleton and Jimmy Cliff too.

Last but certainly not least, great to meet up with the Irish crew as well (dots69, rez and others), total niceness!
