Bad Eye Throwing Jamaican Style Party

The good people at Bad Eye Promotions will be celebrating 46 years of Jamaican independence by putting on a dance at Tramps in Bretonside Bus Station tonight.

A bunch of local DJs will be mixing the music, with DJ Mike Good of Really Good Records, also known for playing with reggae band Roots Street, headlining the bill.

Other guest DJs include DJ Jah Rastafai, Steppin' Razor, Raggadee, DJ Tris and Daddy Cooler and featuring 'Da Best Inna West Sound System' with Alex, Selector, Big Richi, DI and MC Goldman.

You'll be able to hear every style of music from lovers' rock and dance hall to studio 1, ska soca and r'n'b.

Bad Eye's Michelle Williams says: "As Plymouth is a multi cultural city we feel it is important that we embrace our history through all cultures.

"We hope that by putting on this event we'll raise awareness of the struggles that Jamaica has gone through."

"We also believe it's a great excuse for a party!"

Chicken, rice and peas will be available to buy, so you can savour the Jamaican flavour in more ways than one.

Tickets are pounds5 on the door and the Jamaican Independence Dance runs from 10pm to 4am.
