IT was another night of quality entertainment inside the Emancipation Park as the Jamaica Reggae Industry Association (JaRIA) produced Reggae Wednesday series ended. Dubbed Reggae Gone Global, last Wednesday's show saw command performances from singers Richie Stephens, Cherine and Jah 9.

Stephens closed the show after an high-voltage set by Cherine. He did well with Fight Back, Live Your Life Today, a remake of the Rolling Stones' Salt Of The Earth and Trying to Get To You which earned him an encore.

Cherine was electrifying. From the moment she took the stage she connected with I'm A Rebel and Bob Marley's Could You Be Loved.

She pranced about the stage like a woman possessed and the audience loved every minute of it.

Nomadzz went over well with their fusion of reggae, rock and jazz. But at times their language bordered on profane, perhaps forgetting that Reggae Wednesdays is a family event.

The impressive Jah 9's mix of dub and jazz was easy on the ears. Although paying tribute to her father who she described as a 'country pastor' she did not spare the clergy in Preacher Man.

She also scored with New Name, the title track from her debut album which was released this week.

Di Bluprint band, an ensemble from the Edna Manley College of the Visual Performing Arts, also did well.

The event was flavoured by fashion and dance. Models displayed designs from Minka's Maverick Collection, Samus Designs and TNT Fashion.

There was also a performance from the Deh Jah Dance Theatre.
