I received an invitation from a friend who had just moved to Key West the previous month to visit Cayo Hueso . I jumped at the chance to escape the concrete jungle of the mainland. I had no inclination as to what, where, or any knowledge of even how to get to this tiny island. I packed a few things to stay for a week or longer and set our for paradise. As I landed in the Conch Republic I was captivated by the lush vegetation and colorful homes that lined the quaint streets and lanes. This tropical island is bordered by the most vibrant shade of turquoise waters I had ever seen. I visually consumed every fauna and floral possible.
Pato Banton energized the crowd at the Lower Keys Chamber of Commerce’s 3rd Annual Reggae Fest on April 2nd. After Calton Coffie’s last minute cancellation Pato played a two-hour plus “superset” that had children dancing on-stage and locals freestylin’ with the band. Reggae fans caught rhythmic performances from Marijah, Bongo D, and Pato’s Now Generation Band on scenic Sugarloaf Key. Keep checking KeyWestBuzz.com for more details on the re-broadcast of the concert.
