ATLANTA, GA (July 1st, 2014) The Atlanta Caribbean community is waiting with baited breath for the 2nd annual Peach Splash event featuring headliners Machel Montano & The HD Band (MMHD) & Sean Kingston. It will be held on Sunday July 6th, at the Morris Brown Stadium (643 Martin Luther King Jr Drive NW, Atlanta, GA 30314) from 12 to 8 pm.
Machel Montano & The HD Band (MMHD) is known throughout the diaspora for fast-paced, spirited and mesmerizing on-stage performances. Lead vocalist for MMHD, Montano, otherwise known as the ‘King of Soca’, is world renowned for his extensive thirty plus year discography and his international collaborations with artistes such as legendary R&B Group Boyz II Men, Timaya of Nigeria, Bollywood sensation Mahalakshmi Iyer and MAJOR LAZER.
The energy of this band will be complemented by the smooth musical style of platinum-selling singer/songwrit
er, Sean Kingston. Kingston spent three weeks on the US Billboard Hot 100 and topped the UK Singles Chart along with many other international charts for his 2007 hit, “Beautiful Girls”. Although Kingston is no stranger to Atlanta, it is the first time that he is being issued an exclusive invitation from the Caribbean community.
This musical fusion alone is a treat that Atlanta has been waiting for. But, if that was not enough, patrons can also look forward to entertainment by many more celebrated artistes such as Assassin (The Jamaican DJ known for his rough edge vocal style and uncommonly well-constructed lyrics), Patrice Roberts (member of MMHD who burst onto the soca scene with her hit “The Islands”, and who has been going ever since), Pinchers (known for his single “Agony“, from the album of the same name produced by King Jammy) and Farmer Nappy (member of MMHD who controlled the air waves for Trinbago Carnival 2014 with his hit “Big People Party”) to name a few.
According to one of the promoters for this event, ‘Chigga’ of Love People Media, ‘Atlanta is known for its many festivals from National Black Arts Festival, to Sweet Auburn Festival to the One Music Festival… there are so many . But outside of Carnival, there was very little being offered in the way of Caribbean music to the large community that we have here. And so the idea of Peach Splash was born.’
The Morris Brown location has ample room and parking to accommodate this family friendly event. Patrons are invited to bring lawn chairs and mats and to purchase tickets early. These are available at www.islandjams.net , as well as, many Caribbean restaurants throughout the city.
