A healthy serving of soul music
Soul Food Tuesdays, one of the Corporate Area's best kept secret, has been filling the appetite of music lovers for the past year.
The event, held weekly at Bommas Entertainment Complex at 13 Mall Road, Kingston 10, is the brainchild of Fabian Cole, aka Bommas, and his wife, Shakeria Cole, aka Shakky.
"It's the top soul music event in the Corporate Area right now," said Bommas last week at a celebratory party to observe Soul Food Tuesdays' first anniversary.
Bommas said that Soul Food Tuesdays was born out of a desire to provide music lovers with "a different vibe from the dancehall type of setting". He is convinced that they have achieved that objective.
"It's less talk and more music," he said.
Patrice, a patron, said that she journeys from Portmore, St Catherine, weekly to feast on soul music.
"DJs Krazy Kriss, DJ Ray, Alonzo Hawk and others have stuck by Soul Food Tuesdays mandate, which is to provide excellent musical presentation and maximum fun-filled effects," Patrice said.
Another regular patron, Tuffy, explained why he has been a fan of Soul Food Tuesdays.
"This a big people thing enuh, patrons come out early and party to their favorite song and dance the night away with friends and spouses,'' said Tuffy from Kingston.
Here are the highlights from last week's anniversary event.
