Jahmiel pleased with Sumfest performance

July 26, 2017
Jahmiel delivers a passionate performance.

Billboard Magazine writer Pat Meschino has given credit to Jahmiel for his performance at Reggae Sumfest. According to Meschino, the Gain The World singer was brilliant among a sea of stars, and perhaps took his career to a next level.

“Jahmiel delivered a brilliant, career elevating set at Reggae Sumfest early this morning (Saturday), following Nigeria’s Patoranking, who was also great, and got a wonderful response from the audience, many of whom were hearing his music for the first time. But Jahmiel took things to another level, in a well-paced, focused, and razor sharp performance,” Pat Meschino posted on Instagram.

Backed by the iconic Ruff Kutt band, Jahmiel delivered a slew of songs from his growing catalogue, including “Where Were You”, “Things Take Time”, “Strongest Soldier” and “Gain the World”.

When asked if he was pleased with his set, Jahmiel said: “I am pleased with my performance. I went out there to deliver and introduce myself to the people, and I feel I did just that. Big up the bands, Ruff Kutt, and the entire Reggae Sumfest team”.

Set to depart the island on Thursday, Jahmiel has a hectic six-week schedule coming up with performances in Connecticut, New Jersey, Kansas City, Atlanta, Chicago, Naples in Florida and British Virgin Islands, as well as RTI Weekend in Negril.

Clash Stream Question ?

SoundClash Cloud Opinion Piece

Reggae Sumfest showed us how it should be live stream shows and events they should be free. Facebook live is free Youtube is and U stream is free there are many many other free platforms to stream content but VRA still choose to exploit the clash fans with continued overpriced very poor quality live streams. VRA streams are no better than Facebook live streams the truth is Facebook live streams are considerably better than VRA streams because Facebook info structure is far far superior to VRA. The promoters who choose to use VRA are watering down their own brand by partnering with people from outside of our community who are proven to only be looking to exploit.

Reggae Sumfest is without a doubt one of the biggest events in Jamaica dancehall/reggae with some of the biggest artiste in the business performing over the 2 nights so how does Reggae Sumfest in Jamaica provide blip free streaming worldwide not only in HD but in 360 too for free not a penny, however, promotors in America want to charge 40 and 50 dollars to watch 5 hours of frankly rubbish ?

Reggae Sumfest live stream free live stream highlights how VRA has been exploiting promotors and clash fans worldwide $5 is the most VRA should charge for streams the facts are VRA is not black owned VRA owners are white English that’s why they have no empathy or compassion if you are in a VRA dance and you try to stream the dance the security will threaten you with removal that is the precise reason the VRA chat room closed people from outside the culture trying to dictate to those whose culture it is.

In Jamaica, Festival Style Is Coolest After Dark

On the island of Jamaica, personal style has always gone hand in hand with music, starting with Bob Marley’s understated tracksuits and the khaki-shirted swagger of cult ’70s reggae movie Rockers. The dapper looks on the scene this past weekend at Reggae Sumfest, Jamaica’s biggest and longest-running music festival, were no exception. Locals, tourists, and reggae enthusiasts from far and wide converged on the open-air grounds of Catherine Hall in Montego Bay to witness the 25th anniversary of this midsummer event. With a lineup of artists that ran from 8:00 p.m. to 8:00 a.m., the festival had attendees bringing their freshest looks into the wee hours of the morning.

The weekend’s style standouts included Beenie Man, the undisputed king of dancehall, who came dressed in head-to-toe Gucci, and Capleton, the legendary roots reggae star, who stepped out in a custom three-piece look that could have easily come down the runway at Comme des Garçons. Here, a glimpse at the island’s singular take on festival style.
