Its been a little while since you last heard from me, at least via this Entertainment blog. I just wanted to make sure you were aware of this Benefit concert for 2 Barbadian Musicians Smokey Burke and George Jones of "Square One"
Here is a message I received from John Roett

Two of our well known Barbadian musicians, Smokey Burke, and George Jones of the band “Square One” have been diagnosed with cancer. The entertainment industry has come together to assist our friends in what is a very difficult time for them both.
We will be putting on a spectacular show on Saturday April 17th at The Plantation, which has been kindly given to us by Mr. Tony Hoyos and Mr. Colin Brewer to host this event.
Artistes who have willingly promised of their time to perform, include, in alphabetical order: Alison Hinds, Biggie Irie, Blood, Edwin Yearwood, Gabby, Lil Rick, Mikey, Mr. Dale, Natahlee, Peter Ram, Red Plastic Bag, Rupee, and TC, backed by an all star band with Nicholas Brancker, John Roett, Ian Alleyne, Mikey Hulsmeier, a 5 piece horn section, and background vocals. The Boogie Knights Band will also make a special appearance. Many corporate organizations have also pledged their support for these two artistes who have given so much to the entertainment industry in Barbados over the years.
We would greatly appreciate it if you could assist by forwarding this information and flyer to friends and business associates, with the hope that they can purchase tickets, or make any financial donation or help in any way towards making this event a success on behalf of our friends in this time of need. We are all too aware, that any day it could be one of us. Tickets are $30.00
