GREAT HARBOUR, Jost Van Dyke, VI – It was a performance that was long overdue and when it finally happened it was surely phenomenal to witness. Jah Cure showed his fans just why he is a legend in the making as he performed before a packed crowd at Foxy’s in Jost Van Dyke last evening January 19, 2013.

The reggae sensation put on a memorable show that lasted for well over an hour, driving his sea of female fans into a frenzy as he belted out a slew of hits in succession. The massive crowd included fans from both the United States Virgin Islands (USVI) and the Virgin Islands (VI) and they were keen on matching the artiste lyric for lyric as he sang.

The energy could be felt all around and beyond the stage in some form or the other as women flocked to touch the artiste, screaming his name at every note he sang or word uttered in their direction; others either rocked to his more up-tempo hits or swayed with their partners in close embrace to the lovers rock tunes that Cure is more popularly known for.

He stirred emotions with songs from his new album, ‘World Cry’ such as ‘Before I Leave’ and ‘Unconditional Love’, both hits in their own right; and took fans down memory lane to ‘True Reflections’, and the ever popular ‘Sticky’.

Jah Cure was joined at one point during his act by two of the VI’s premier saxophonists, Dalan Vanterpool and Kamau Georges. The crowd response was so great that Vanterpool and Georges received an invitation from Jah Cure to stay on for the remainder of his performance. The duo had earlier put on a set of their own prior to Cure’s entry on stage.

Earlier in the evening, the Spectrum Band, performing out of the USVI, had the crowd jumping to their own special brand of music as they kept them well entertained before the feature artiste’s performance. Promoter dj Kevy Kev also hyped things up, along with MC for the evening, Rashidi M. Clenance, adding fuel to the flame that was to come later.

Philicianno "Foxy" Callwood, OBE expressed that the concert was great “I think it was the best… I think there was nothing better that we could have done, nothing better that the stars could have done… everything was just fantastic.”

A female fan, who said she was a gues,t related, “it was great, it was the best in the Virgin Islands… British and US.”

Jah Cure said after the concert, “It was a cool vibe… I went easy and enjoyed my crowd.”

His new album, ‘World Cry’ is available on iTunes and amazon and includes collaborations with Tu Pac and Jazmine Sullivan. Jah Cure performed as part of the Foxy's 5 Martin Luther King Junior weekend concert, 5 mile paddle board and 5km run

    Spectrum was spectacular and Jah Cure was good but his backup bank is rather amateurish. Throughout his performance the feedback on the system was also excruciating.

    Overall, the atmosphere was great and we had a fun time.
