The Massed Band of the Jamaica Defence Force, comprised of the Jamaica Military Band and the Jamaica Regiment Band, under the leadership of bandmaster Actg. Director of Music, Warrant Officer Class 1 Albert Shaun Hird, steps out in full regale this Sunday, April 21 for their monthly performance on the lawns of The Royal Hope Botanical Gardens, at the Shell Bandstand. Enter Hope Gardens from Hart Boulevard in Hope Gardens. Ample parking.
This is what you call a pleasant Sunday afternoon, and great family entertainment. Bring the grandparents, the teenagers and the little ones. Spread your blanket on the lawns or take a folding chair. Perhaps an umbrella, your camera, bottle of wine, and your good spirits.
The band master has asked me to tell you all that they are coming with "a nice collection of music to make everyone happy", and that they begin with military precision at 1600 hours!
Spread the joy.
