A Caribbean celebration is never complete without music. And the upcoming Taste the Island Experience certainly won’t disappoint, with Haitian star J Perry as the headliner for this special Caribbean food festival, set for April 26-28 in Downtown Fort Lauderdale.
The melody of Haitian singer J Perry’s infectious song Dekole (ole-ole-o) has been seared into the minds of fans since its 2011 debut in Haiti. Its remix became the promotional tune for the 2014 World Cup broadcasts, and now fans can hear this and other J Perry music in fitness studios around the world on Zumba soundtracks.
At the main showcase on Saturday, April 27, after a day filled with cooking and mixology demos from some of the Caribbean’s finest, J Perry will bring his unique brand of catchy, high energy music to close out the night on the main stage Saturday night. Guests can enjoy the music of DJ Fergie and Sir Rockwell throughout the day.
On Friday, April 26, guests can also savor the musical stylings of grammy-winning music producer Jason “J Vibe” Farmer and friends, joined by jazz singer Lavie, saxophonist John Saxx, and DJ Mike Tee.
On Sunday, April 28, attendees will indulge in a tropical mimosa Bbunch on the Sunny Side at the Riverside Hotel. Steel drum music and a fashion show by Tanya Marie Design will provide entertainment, and the weekend will draw to a relaxing close on a cruise along Fort Lauderdale’s Tarpon River.
