Tobago Jazz.. the fetes..

Doh mind I am boycotting the Tobago Jazz Festival , which takes place next weekend, due to unscrupulous business practices by certain Tobago hoteliers, I am liking the fact that alternative events have piggy backed off the Jazz Festival.

If you happen to be in Tobago this weekend a series of FREE Jazz Caravan Concerts are carded to take place on April 19th at the Pigeon Point Heritage Park from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. and on April 20th at Charlotteville from 11a.m. to 6 p.m.The acts include Mungal Patasar, Michael Boothman, the Sean Thomas Quartet, Patti Rogers, Caribbean INXS, Kay Alleyne, Jackie Johnson Xcel, the Kariwak Players, Princess Adanna and Xtreme among many others.

Jazz on the Beach is another series of free concerts, taking place at Mount Irvine admisison is FREE and it is an ALL day show from 11:00AM to 5:00PM on the 26th and 27th of April. Featured performers are Clive Zanada & Friends, Clifford Charles, Theron Shaw, Micheal Boothman, Patti Rogers, Tabanka Blues Band, Vaugnette, Vocal Collaboration and Jerry Tilitz Quartet.

I would gladly go to Tobago just for the Breakfast Party, to see Whitney and Beach House (oh the memories of Carnival!!!) but like I say, I am boycotting the Jazz Festival (the line up is kind of lame as well) maybe next year when I find a hotel/villa/guest house that are HONEST business people I will reconsider my boycott! humph!
