The American Foundation for the University Of The West Indies (AFUWI) in association with Riddims Marketing will present Caribbean Jazz Matazz Saturday, September 28 at The Broward Center for the Performing Arts. Proceeds will provide scholarships to deserving students to attend UWI at their various campuses throughout the Caribbean.
With an impressive lineup of top-notch performers, Caribbean Jazz Matazz promises a mesmerizing fusion of jazz, reggae and calypso music for an unforgettable evening of island sound. Featuring famed saxophonist Arturo Tappin from Barbados, renowned steel panist Leon Foster Thomas from Trinidad & Tobago, jazz guitarist Eugene Grey and vocalist Gem Myers from Jamaica, Caribbean Jazz Matazz will delight audiences with its dynamic blend of smooth jazz, rhythmic calypso and off-beat reggae influences. The Dillard Center for the Arts Jazz Ensemble, which continues to shine as the premiere high school jazz band that has won numerous awards, makes a special appearance that you will not want to miss.
The intimate Amaturo Theatre at the Broward Center seats only 590 guests and patrons are urged to purchase tickets early, as early indications are that this will be a sold-out event with strong support coming from the UWI Alumni South Florida Chapter as well as fans of the performers.
Buy tickets now online at BrowardCenter.org, by phone 954-462-0222 or at the Broward Center Box Office. Caribbean JazzMatazz is sponsored by Grace Foods, Golden Krust Caribbean Grill, Dennis Shipping and the UWI Alumni Association.
