Smokin' Jacket, one of Kingston's most well known event franchises, was true to the theme: Girls' Night Out an all female revue. Hosted by recording artiste Farenheit, the show saw friends and fans enjoying the chilled out vibe at the classy and chic Carlos Cafe Restaurant and Bar. The crowd was buzzing as they waited to hear headliners Danielle, Timberlee and Denyque with supporting acts Natalie Storm, as well as upcoming artistes CK, Devina Burn and Kimberly Nain. While Danielle was no-show, the ladies each took the stage in a performance to remember.
The night opened with CK looking bold and sexy as she sang her two singles Heartbreaker and Rescue Me. Dressed in 'barely there' black and resonating confidence, the flirty CK took command of the stage, and with her sexy energy she was definitely a heart breaker.
Next in line was the girl with the big voice, Kimberly Nain! Looking comfortably casual in leggings and flats, Kim established her bubbly and created a humorous rapor with the audience. "How does it feel..." she belted, as she laughingly revealed to the crowd that she was that voice behind the popular KFC jingle. The talented newcomer showed off her impressive vocal range hitting some serious notes as she prepped the audience for the main event with a cover Billionaire by Bruno Mars. The golden voiced diva then serenaded the crowd with flawless rifts and falsettos, performing three of her singles L-O-V-E, I Want You and Real Man.

The edgy amber haired empress exuded lots of attitude; gyrating to her Latin rhythm infused tune, Make You Feel. She then turned up the heat inviting Macka Diamond onto the stage to perform their collaboration You Like It. Both Macka and Burn demonstrated a dance they called the 'Powa Wine' which was "for all the ladies who know you can hold your man" according to Miss Diamond
Natalie Storm was next to take the stage. Storm sported a tough black leather punk rock look with a blonde low cut hairdo. She turned up the vibes and brought the dancehall to the evening with her rough and raw presence. It was a high energy performance as she sang and deejayed through her hit songs Back It Up and God Bless which got the audience riled up. She closed by giving her fans an exclusive performance of her latest song, Bright Boy.
In a midriff baring plaid shirt and daisy dukes, sexy cowgirl Timberlee strutted out next. With her signature 'bad gyal' attitude and old school dancehall vibe, she began with an acoustic version of her single No Stress. She then roused the audience with the crowds favourite, Bubble Like Soup. Timberlee finished up with an exclusive performance of her a new track on the Bedroom Riddim.
Looking sweet and sexy as always, Denyque was a true crowd stopper as she closed the show. The sultry singer managed to make her near illegal shorts elegant, and showed of those killer gams in dazzling pumps. Denyque's growth as a performer was evident as she was fully in tune with the audience.
Despite a sprained ankle she delivered a smooth and energetic show. With a clear voice and sultry swag she rocked singles Super Girl and Hooked on Me. Denyque broke up the set, charming the audience with an acoustic cover of Jessie J's Price Tag showing her mellow side and versatility. Lastly she brought Reggae artiste Chino to the stage for their collaboration Driving Me Insane. The clear on stage chemistry between the two brought the song to a higher level as the crowd rocked to the rhythym.
