Jamaica’s Best Music Festival Seeks To Make Dreams Come True This Holiday

Jamaica and the Caribbean’s best annual musical festival, is seeking to make dreams come through this holiday by giving one lucky amateur musician or band, the opportunity to play before thousands at the annual Jamaica Jazz & Blues Festival from January 24-30, 2010 in Montego Bay, Jamaica.

Entry is now open for the 2010 JAMAICA Jazz and Blues Band Quest on the festival’s website at www.jamaicajazzandblues.com/. The winner will take home a flurry of prizes including the opportunity to be flown in and hosted free of cost on the beautiful island of Jamaica and the chance to perform before thousands of fans in the birthplace of Bob Marley.

“It was the next logical step for us and developing our Art of Music idea, ” says Walter Elmore, head of TurnKey Productions, producers of the Festival. “Talented amateurs wishing to enter will have to visit the Festival’s savvy website and become a member of the JJ&B Fan Zone. With that membership, persons will be able to upload their music and performance clips.”

The winner will be judged by a selection of qualified persons, selected by the Festival organizers and fan votes.

The festival has become synonymous with the culture of Jamaica and will feature not just local performance but a slew of international acts including multiple award winning singer and actress, Jennifer Kate Hudson, Billy Ocean, Joe Roy Jackson, Kelly Price, Tamia, Deborah Cox, Hall and Oats, Jon Secada, Monty Alexander, Roy Ayers, Third World, Marion Hall, and the Max Klezmer Band.

Jamaica Jazz since its introduction in 1996 was known as the Air Jamaica Jazz and Blues Festival, has attracted thousands of patrons from the USA, Europe, the Caribbean and Jamaica.

This year the festival is again being presented by key title sponsor, the Jamaica Tourist Board.
