Rockhouse Hotel & Spa and Pushcart Restaurant in Negril are pleased to announce the launch of their monthly outdoor, acoustic, concert series. Each month, Rockhouse will honor Jamaica's rich musical tradition by presenting important artists spanning the decades and genres of ska, reggae, and dancehall. The series will showcase each artist with an intimate and elegant acoustic campfire performance taking place on the cliffs overlooking the Negril's beautiful Pristine Cove. Each installment of the series will feature international DJ / selector talent and will be broadcast live on Radio Lily, the online radio station of Rockhouse's New York City sister property, the ultra-popular Miss Lily's restaurant.
The series launch on May 21 will feature dancehall singjay Mr. Vegas performing an acoustic set of island favorites and hits from his Sweet Jamaica album. The event will also feature an opening DJ set by Brooklyn, New York's DJ Max Glazer (Rihanna's tour DJ and founding member of the Federation Sound System).
A portion of all proceeds from the event series will go to the Rockhouse Foundation, the hotel's non-profit organization that has invested over US $2,000,000 in building and refurbishing public schools and libraries in Western Jamaica.
