Mr. Notch to Perform at Rebel Salute

Entertainment 19 Jan, 2023 Follow News

Mr. Notch is set to perform alongside Big Mountain at the Rebel Salute Reggae Festival in Jamaican on 20th January.

This Friday January 20th Caymanian recording artist Mr. Notch will be making history as the first local artist to perform at the renowned Reggae festival, ‘Rebel Salute’, held at Grizzly’s Plantation Cove in Priory Beach, St. Ann’s, Jamaica.

After just completing a tour of America with reggae band Big Mountain as part of the UB40 ‘Bigga Bagga Riddim’ 26 state summer tour, Mr. Notch has started 2023 by continuing his trend of making strides within the international music industry.

Every January,  thousands of Reggae music lovers make the pilgrimage to Jamaica for the world-class event known to deliver a spectacular experience of authentic roots, rock, reggae, wholesome culture and healthy living.

For more than two decades, Rebel Salute has successfully brought the richest traditions of Reggae Music to one of the largest and most discerning international audiences of any music festival in the Caribbean.

Set in a vast open air venue that overlooks the Caribbean Sea, the festival offers “Saluters” a range of locally and internationally acclaimed artistes who perform from dusk ‘til dawn, food vendors who will only serve ‘ital’ cuisine, and an arts village with an array of indigenous art, jewelry, clothing and craft items on sale.

Rebel Salute is celebrating its 25th anniversary this year and has maintained a strict vegetarian, non-alcoholic beverage policy that has set this outdoor festival event apart from all others since its inception.

In 2016, Rebel Salute introduced its latest innovation – the “Herb Curb”.

The enclosed adults only area features exhibits, herbal practitioners, educators, speakers and medical professionals who explore everything from the sacramental to the medicinal marvels of cannabis.

The Herb Curb also features a “highest grade” smoking lounge by the seaside.

The venue is set along the picturesque St. Ann, Jamaica coastline and offers a campsite, conveniently located on the grassy area adjacent to the festival grounds, only steps away from a beautiful white sandy beach.

Hailed today as a spiritual renaissance, Rebel Salute has become the bedrock for the exposure and celebration of reggae music, and the festival of choice for the reggae connoisseur.

 Mr. Notch expressed his profound gratitude for the opportunity to the members of Big Mountain band who have always embraced him as a member of their musical family.

“I’m looking forward to it, and cant wait to perform live with these guys in Jamaica, I just wish that my new single ‘Jah Knows’ was out in time for me to include it in the set list. “

He continued by giving thanks and praises to Almighty God for the gift of song and “for sustaining me for as long as he has.”

This Year Mr. Notch is celebrating 42 years of performing professionally, starting in 1981 with his debut gig as lead singer of The Juveniles, at the Galleon Beach Hotel, now the home of the Westin on Seven Mile Beach.

Mr. Notch has recently released Black My Story, Reggae Man and Got to Have Love, three singles which can be found on all digital platforms.
