In just a few days, specifically just three days away, Saturday, May 19, the MoBay Crab Festival, the day and night family event, will buzz to life the popular Montego Bay chill spot, Pier 1. Although many will come to see the near magical transformation of that world-renowned spot into the biggest kiddies’ village in Western and perhaps all of Jamaica, the entertainment package will be the magnet that keeps patrons planted at the venue. If anyone doubts that, they will quickly have to reconsider when Agent Sasco takes to the stage.
Sasco, whose real name is Jeffrey Campbell, is a master of the stage and although his past as Assassin is behind him, make no mistake – Agent Sasco is a legend in the dancehall circles. That ‘it quality’ that propelled him to the heights of dancehall stardom is still with him, and it will be on show when he wows the many families that will be turning out to enjoy a day of pure, family fun.
The 35-year-old is riding on his most recent hit, Winning Right Now, and he will have many more to roll out once May 19 rolls around.
Tickets will be going for $1,000 presold and $1,500 at the gate, as all is in place for a grand celebration of food, fun, laughter and top-notch entertainment.
Though Agent Sasco is under the spotlight today, the likes of gospel powerhouses Jermaine Edwards and the dynamic duo of Anavah Love Jones, Chris Martin and Govana, among others, will be there to sway the crowd. It is an entertainment package worthy of an international concert, so families are expected to turn out to the one-of-a-kind event.
It will be the perfect cocktail of fun for all ages, as there will be bounce-a-bouts present, face painting, mega slides, trampolines, and a game arcade, as well as the ageless thriller, rock climbing, available for all to enjoy. Partaking in these adrenaline-inducing activities will come at no additional cost to the families that turn out, as all will be covered under the reasonably priced tickets to enter the venue. And if those weren’t enough to draw all the families out, we are sure the pizza and hot dog stations, snow cones, cotton candy and ice cream, among others, will be sure to do the trick.
Get your presold tickets at Fontana Pharmacy (MoBay, Savanna-la-Mar, Kingston, Ocho Rios), at Pier 1 or at Parts To Go in Falmouth.
Do your families a favour and show up to the MoBay Crab Festival on Saturday, May 19, you will be glad you did.
