Melia Braco Village, Jamaica
01.10.18 > 01.15.18
Ramble on the
Island has been sold out since it went on sale a few weeks ago, but
we're happy to announce that we've secured a limited number of
additional rooms at The Royalton Blue Waters.
This resort is just 15 minutes from Melia Braco Village where the concerts will be taking place, so you won't miss any music. Shuttle is only included for the nights of Jan 10, 11, 12, 13 & 14th. On the pre-night of Jan 10th the shuttle will begin in the evening. Guests can enjoy the 'stay at 1 play at 3' benefits with access to the adjacent Royalton White Sands and also, the Melia Braco Village where the event is taking place.
Despite how connected we all have become in this modern
world, occasionally scheduling conflicts can still occur. As we prepared
the announcement for our return to Jamaica, Billy got the news that the
Doobie Brothers had committed to a series of shows at exactly the same
time as our trip to Jamaica. After all the possibilities of moving the
dates were exhausted, it became apparent that Billy would not be able to
join us this time. As we digested this news, we reflected that we had
encountered similar circumstances before and both Paul and Billy felt
strongly that the show and party in Jamaica must go on.
“Unfortunately due to conflicting schedule commitments, Billy won't be with us this year, but having the Ramble Band’s Brian Mitchell sit in on keys will definitely add some flavor. And speaking of flavor, we've invited Papa John Gros to join us as well. For those that don't know about John, he's a wonderful keyboardist from New Orleans. Both of these guys are masters at blending rock and roll, funk and rootsy Americana into a genre bending gumbo. Kinda like Feat, if I do say so myself! Fred and I have worked with John many times on our trips to New Orleans, so we plan on having a bit of a Mardi Jah Mon! It will be funky for sure. So get your rooms early and come join us for the fun in the sun.”
Billy adds, ”I have had the pleasure of playing with both these cats and I can think of no one more suited to take this on. When I started to think about who could take this on, they were the two players at the top of my list. I have spoken with both Brian and John and I can say they are both looking forward to being a part of our wonderful event and they will play some inspired music for everyone to soak in.”
We look forward to seeing you back where it all began! Respect!!
