Treasure Coast Jerk Festival 2017


Treasure Coast has been dreaming of a Jerk Festival for a long time and it was finally delivered on Saturday July 29th 2017 at the Civic Center Arena in Port Saint Lucie.  The event was powered by The Caribbean American Cultural Group who did a splendid job organizing their first annual Jerk festival with an overwhelming support from the communities. The lineup included Rev Norris Weir “The Jamaicans” Judy Mowatt “I-Threes” Mikey Spice all backed by The Code Red Band and hosted by Roc Da Box. This was a long anticipated event in the rural areas on the South Florida flank, basically it was a day of wheel and come again action from each performer.

With sponsorship from local businesses, the burden of entry fee was subdued to a mere $12 per tickets in advance, $10 for teenagers 13 through 18; children up to through age 12 attend free. The iconic artists showcased their awesomeness and professionalism that made the event a success. Respect to The Code Red Band and Roc Da Box for controlling the flawless back to back transitions on the set and let’s not forget Andrew Fresh and DJ Sonny that kept the crowd in a frenzy with interactive monologues and strong intermission bashment on the one’s and three’s that continuously moved the crowd in a Rocksteady/Ska vibe with sentiments from reggae and soca hits. The stage and time management was excellent.

The best performance of the night came from the sensational Judy Mowatt; she demonstrated and cast away any doubts of her absence from limelight with a commanding performance as she reinstated her place as a consummate and iconic performer. Rev Norris Weir did his thing with Gospel until he touched down on his earlier Rocksteady catalog and Mikey Spice who was the closing act brought his vibrant and sexiness on stage that got the females rowdy.  It was an overall production that exceeded all critics’ standards; a job well done by everyone. Next year’s event should be bigger and better; hats off to all sponsors that made the event “Jerky” with aromatic dishes and tropical juices.  Great job CACG!
