REVIEW: The Baltimore International Reggae Jerk Festival (Photos)

The International Entertainment Group hosted its third annual Baltimore International Reggae Jerk Festival this past Sunday. It was a day filled with music (local & internationally), food, vendors and lots of fun. For the most part of the day, local artist performed as well as DJ’s who came from all over. This years featured artist that took the stage was Capleton, Sanchez, and Baby Cham. The Baltimore International Reggae Jerk Festival is a family oriented event.

Many local artist had a chance to showcase their talent throughout the day including local artist Jah Works and  “Strykers Posse” formed by Ichelle Cole and Yvonne Deane.  Strykers Posse set the tone of their performance with a Bob Marley original “Crazy Baldheads.” They also performed “I shall be released” and “No, No, No” by Dawn Penn.

International reggae artist Sanchez took the stage to start of the main event for the evening. He sung some of his classic hits such as “Loneliness Leave Me alone,” “I Can’t Wait,” “Frenzy,” Tracy Chapman’s “Baby Can I Hold You,” and more!





Following the performance of Sanchez was international Dancehall artist Baby Cham. The crowd went wild and he performed many of his hits including “Ghetto Story.”

Aft Baby Cham performed number of his songs, he introduced Capleton who took the stage and set the tone of his performance with “Jah Jah City” and stressed the importance of having a clean heart.

Then entertainment was on point as well as the jerk burger I tried for the first time. They included a “new talent” portion as part of the show and gave out free give aways from “The Vintage Clothing Company.” For the most the part the festival was organized, however, exiting the event was a different story. I would definitely attend again next year especially if the artist line up is like this or even better. If you are a reggae lover and love seeing artist perform live this is the place to be.
