MR. VEGAS LOCKS WEST KINGSTON JAMBOREE
Internationally acclaimed singjay Mr. Vegas underlined his position as one of the perennial dancehall acts with two marquis performances over the weekend.
On Saturday night, he held centrestage in Port Antonio, Portland during the 'Magnum 10 Long 10 Strong' promotion show working a full set chock full of hits including his current chart-burner, Man a Gallis. A surge of excitement ran through the crowd like an electric current as he did old-school hits such as Tek Weh Yuself, Raging Bull, Heads High and Hot Wuk. He closed his set with a huge forward for his number one hit, I Am Blessed.
Vegas changed up his set for the hardcore audience at West Kingston Jamboree using dancehall selector Maestro to 'hype' up the set as he blazed a fire. Backed by the Ruff Kut band, he started off with his current chart-burner, Man a Gallis before seguingly neatly into crowd favourites such as Sucky Ducky, Heads High, Hot Gal No Fight Ova Man, while Maestro did his part to give Vegas' set a Passa Passa feel with his antics that seemed to go over well with the capacity audience.
He closed his set with I Am Blessed, getting a huge roar from the crowd as he exited the stage.
Mr. Vegas will be embarking on a two week tour of Europe which will see him doing gigs in France, Germany and Spain.
