Jamaican socialites were out in droves for tribute concert

Brand Manager of Red Stripe, Nathan Nelms.

A cool, easy reggae jamming atmosphere, excited guests and a star-studded event, perfectly summarises what was the 50th anniversary of 1972 film The Harder They Come.

There was also a tribute concert at 10A West Kings House Road in St Andrew in honour of Jamaican music legend  Jimmy Cliff, who starred in the Perry Henzell-directed film.

With an ice cold bottle of Red Stripe, Greg Silverman is here to celebrate a legend.

With performances by Cliff himelf, Marcia Griffiths, Bounty Killa, Tanya Stephens and many more, patrons were given a real treat last Saturday night (June 4). 

The event was a huge success and pulled out the socialites in Jamaican society, who also viewed a masterfully curated exhibition on the film.
