Alliance: Makes the Rounds

Tuesday, October 20, 2009

Weekend gone was Heroes Weekend in Jamaica and some of the Alliance
"giants" were out in full force representing the current generation
of Jamaican Heroes.

Serani, debut album No Games dropping next Tuesday the 27th, was the
special guest at a special media all-weekend event organised by Jet
Blue. The airline had invited 150 media, bloggers and tastemakers on
a "Jet Blue Mystery Tour," where by the invitees turn up at the
airport unaware of their destination until the last minute. All
guests were put up at the luxurious Iberostar Grand Hotel in
Rosehall, Montego Bay, the Jamaican city that Jet Blue has just
started to fly to.

Guests were treated to a 5 star weekend, culminating at an All-White
party on the Sandals Cay island off the Mobay coastline, with Serani
as the surprise guest. About a minute into his performance a
rainstorm blasted the island but Serani used it to his advantage and
jumped into the crowd and had everyone doing the "call down the rain"
dance. The vibes were unforgettable and were only stopped because the
rain damaged the mic and he could sing no more, but his performance
won him many fans and will certainly garner him great media coverage
for his album release on October 27.

Later the same night, Gully Gad Mavado was in town for the Footprints
beach party that also starred Soulja Boy, Beenie Man, Vybz Kartel and
Flippa. The show didn't get the greatest of turnouts, the gate price
of $3000 probably played a part in that, but Mavado gave the
performance of the night hands down. He showed love to the Gully and
to all the Gaza fans, making them quickly forget their Gaza
allegiance and won them over with his huge catalogue of hits, past
and present.

During his set Gully Squad members Chase Cross, Stein and Flexxx, who
is rapidly making a name for himself in the Dancehall world, helped
keep the level of vibes sky-high.

Flexxx recently shot a video for his single "Fresh" with famed
director Jay Will that should hit small screens within weeks.
