Morgan Heritage Ends Inaugural Jazz and Style on High Note

Grammy award winning reggae family Morgan Heritage closed the inaugural Tortola Pier Park Jazz and Style Festival on a high note.

The two-day event did more than just showcase the stylish, and trendy offerings of the Pier Park, but also created a relaxing atmosphere of soothing reggae, smashing hits, and phenomenal jazz.

For two days (26 and 27 May) the residents who turned up at the event were treated to impressive performances from local and regional artistes.

Style Showcase

On Friday UMI delivered an epic runway show that saw many enthralled as they gazed upon en vogue fashion pieces showcased by some familiar faces in the community. For the audience, it was literally a walk down memory lane as fans of the UMI brand were able to see some of the models from previous years taking the catwalk again.

The fun also saw Minister for Communications and Works, Hon. Vanterpool coolly walking the runway as well.

Saturday’s Style showcase featured guest Supermodel Naima Mora, the season four winner of America’s Next Top model. Naima and a number of local models fiercely showcased the stunning pieces of clothing and jewelry on sale at the various stores at the Pier Park.


That night featured performances from Jeremy Vanterpool, A-Team Band featuring Olatunji and Farmer Nappy. Dean Frazer featuring Alaine and Karen Smith were originally slated to perform that night as well but their performance was moved to the Saturday night.

As a result Saturday’s show was extended and the curtains did not fall until minutes to 5:00 Sunday morning. The lineup included: Calden James, HLSCC Jazz Ensemble, HLSCC Stingray Singers, Dalan Vanterpool, Kamau Georges and 2nd Degree, Etienne Charles and Creole Soul featuring the Relator whose witty calypsos had the crowd roaring with laughter.
