Jazz Beat and Pan Explosion
make a comeback to this year's
WeBeat St James Live 2017. The
return of these two events is in
response to numerous requests
from die-hard loyalists.
This year's edition is in tribute to its
founding member and first president,
Earl Ronald Crosby, who passed away
in August 2016.
Though still in negotiations with
several sponsors, the St James Com-
munity Improvement Committee
(SJCIC) is committed to staging the
Festival which runs from June 4 and
6 through to June 10 at the St James
Amphitheatre, Western Main Road,
This year, the events on the scaled-
down calendar include WeTreat (Sun-
day,June 4); Health Day and Film Night
(Tuesday, June 6); JazzBeat (Wednes-
day, June 7); Pan Explosion (Thursday,
June 8); Vintage Kaiso (Friday, June 9);
Steelband & Traditional Mas Parade
(Saturday, June 10); and Boat Cruise
(Sunday, June 11).
WeBeat St James Live 17 is a cultural
explosion intended to showcase the di-
verse cultures and recognise contribu-
tions of St Jamesians in their lifetime.
The event had its genesis in 2001 in an
effort to enhance community/heritage
tourism and economic growth, based
on a pilot project---The Renaissance
District concept---an initiative of the
then Tourism Industrial Development
The SAJCIC continues to pay hom-
age to community elders and people
who have dedicated their lives to
the promotion and development of
artistic, sporting and cultural tradi-
tions, and whose achievements have
brought honour and glory to St James.
The SJCIC has created opportunities
for steelbands where they can show-
case their varied repertoire outside of
Carnival. It provides a stage where a
proper production of"pure, unadulter-
ated" vintage calypsoes can be heard.
It has been able to give jazz aficiona-
dos a place where they could come and
muse on the local fare. It also offers
events for the young, health events for
the elderly, all while throwing a great
street pan party.
Staging the event is never without
difficulties, the most challenging being
financial. In its 17 years of continued
existence, the organisers came close
to cancelling on two occasions. But
despite the woes, WeBeat continues.
Donisha Prendergast, granddaughter
of the late Bob Marley, addresses the
audience at WeBeat St James.
Fashion by Meiling. On May 7,
UWI hosts InStyle featuring
fashion by designers including
Pantar, Meiling, Neha Dawar,
Charu Lohan Dass, Heather Jones,
Claudia Pegus and Ecliff Elie.
