On Friday, ‘Singy Singy’ Tarrus Riley was the main act booked for the Treasure Beach Sport & Entertainment weekend in St Elizabeth.
He was in his element as he delivered an awesome performance that featured the ubiquitous She’s Royal.
Hit after hit Riley enthralled the audience following a credible performance by Noddy Virtue, who was in his home town.
Riley showed his versatility as he sang songs from the ’80s and ’90s over Stone Love’s tracks before moving into more of his own like Gimme Likkleand the The Limit.
He surprised the crowd by calling up Khago. Khago immediately launched into his own music with Tun Up Di Ting, Nah Sell Out and Tax Inna My World.
Tarrus interacted well with the audience, at one point asking “Should I consider becoming a plumber or a mechanic?” Asking for the response, “Say gwaan Singy Singy if mi sound good,” the audience complied.
The crowd loved every minute of it. Carla Hollingsworth, brand manager at Pepsi, said the event was the perfect way to kick off the weekend.
“Pepsi is well known for hosting the biggest and best events across the world. This weekend in Treasure Beach is amazing because it gives an opportunity to showcase our own local music and sporting talent. We are happy to be a part of this and know that the crowd enjoyed this Pepsi music event immensely,” Hollingsworth said.
The event also featured rising star Jodian Pantry, who made her mark as she entertained the crowd earlier. Stone Love and Soul Imperial kept the energy going into the wee hours of the morning.
