Nesbeth has returned from Calgary where he performed at the Calgary International Reggae Festival sharing stage with the likes of Beres Hammond and Kenyatta Hill and the Inner Circle Band.


The artiste is beaming about his overall experience, the hospitable treatment of the promoters and the aroused reception from the large crowd in attendance of the event, made his experience “one he will not forget in a long time.”

ImageNot often enough, positive reports of the hospitality shown to some artistes by promoters make the news. Nesbeth however, applauds the Promotional Team of the Calgary International Reggae Festival for their professionalism and hospitality. “It felt good especially after a delayed flight that had me waiting in one airport for over 5 hours and having to night over in Toronto before getting into Calgary.”

Nesbeth’s performance was well received, from beginning to end. Upon entering the stage at approximately 6:00pm he introduced his first selection and most popular song to date, “Boardhouse” to the delight of the fans whose reception blew him away and he had to perform the song repeatedly. He went on to introduce other selections such as I Love Her, Drive By, Mama’s Smile, A Nuh Suh Mi Waan Live, Reggae Music, Guns Out, Friend Killa and Baby Mother in between friendly ‘chit-chattering with the crowd then ended his set with a rendition of Bob Marley’s One Love single. At the end of his one hour encore performance, Nesbeth was recalled to do a few more tracks which he delightfully did for his now ecstatic audience before exiting the stage. He would have stayed longer but the event demanded the performances of the other artistes billed to whom eventually rocked it in their respective slots.

Now back at home, the work continues for an artiste whose unique sound and positive lyrics are slowly but surely receiving the attention of international Reggae fans as it rightfully should.
