Fare Blend hosted the Legendary Maytones Live and Direct from Jamaica on Saturday, February 16 2013 for a Valentine Dinner & Dance.
Fare Blend would like to thank all who joined us for this remarkable experience. The Fyah & Flamez band backed Juliet Nelson who returned to Ottawa to warm up the audience with a sumptuous blend of Classic Reggae and Lovers Rock tunes. The Reggae Legends “The Maytones” then took centre stage to give a concert that was truly a unique opportunity for all lovers of music. They have led the charts for decades and entertained the audience with such classic songs like ”God Bless The Day I Found You”, “Boat to Zion”, “Madness” and so many more. Thank you Vernon and Gladstone for sharing the beautiful harmony of the Maytones with Ottawa and for making our Valentine weekend such a memorable one. May Jah Jah continue to bless us all!
About the Maytones
Born and raised in May Pen, a town in the parish of Clarendon, Jamaica, Vernon Buckley and harmony singer Gladstone Grant started their reign as one of reggae’s top performers in the late 60’s. While many duos from Jamaica rose to the top during the early days of the reggae era, the Maytones stayed on top!
Fortunately for Canadian Reggae Fans, in 1980 Vernon Buckley moved to Montreal. Today, Vernon has his own production studio, and has reunited with Gladstone Grant. This Maytones reunion for such an intimate audience is truly a remarkable experience for Lovers of Reggae from Canada and beyond.
