CAUGHT ON CAM: Sandals Ochi’s grand debut + Showstoppers at JJTC’s “All I Ever Had” + Belafonte does Greenwich Film Fest + Nature’s Life’s Journey album launch

OH, WHAT A NIGHT! June 1, St. Ann. It was a scene worthy of Las Vegas in the summer, as Sandals Resorts International celebrated the official opening of its newest ‘piece of paradise’ – Sandals Ochi Beach Resort – on the north coast last Monday, with a concert headlined by Mr. Bombastic. Feeling the party spirit, Sandals Chairman Gordon ‘Butch’ Stewart and Sandals CEO Adam Stewart joined Shaggy onstage as the music blared in the background and guests danced the night away.

THREE’S COMPANY: June 2, St. Andrew. The Redbones-hosted launch of reggae crooner Nature’s album, Life’s Journey, last Tuesday drew appearances by a host of culture influencers, among them Tourism and Entertainment state minister Damian Crawford, author and university lecturer Donna Hope, and film commissioner Carole Beckford – who chatted briefly before emcee Isis got the ball rolling.

IT TAKES TWO: June 6, United States. Just days after being conferred with an honorary Doctor of Laws degree by Ivy League institution Princeton University, cultural icon Harry Belafonte joined TV veteran Regis Philbin onstage at the 2015 Greenwich Film Festival’s Changemaker Honoree Gala at the L’Escala Restaurant in Greenwich, Connecticut.

WELL TUNED: June 7, St. Andrew. The strains of classic showtunes and songs from the silver screen filled the Mountain View-based Alhambra Inn on Sunday evening, as the Jamaica Junior Theatre Company (JJTC) presented their 25th musical showcase, “All I Ever Had”. Songstress and actress Stephanie Hazle, left, (last seen bringing the funny in the Laff It Off sequel) shares a moment with pianist Ann Trouth after delivering a solid rendition of the aria “Softly Awakes My Heart” from Samson and Delilah.

GUYS AND DOLLS: June 7, St. Andrew. The multi-talented trio of Ashley Thurlow (right), Andrew Bailey and Sydnie Greaves were among the 14 or so performers – all affiliated with the JJTC or the senior Jamaica Musical Theatre Company (JMTC) – who shone with their A-game during the nearly two-hour recital at the Alhambra on Sunday.
