'Triple treat' for reggae fans

WHAT started off as the common love for reggae music on social networking site facebook has now culminated in a premiere movie night for the movie Marley organised for fans of the king of reggae Bob Marley.

Co-organisers of the Thirsty Thursday program scheduled for June 7, Amos Radrodro and Will Walker have planned the program at the Village 6 cinemas in Suva where fans of the late reggae star get "a triple treat" for $20.

"We have a night of cocktail, then the main movie event and after screening we also have a barrel night organised at the Liquids bar," Mr Walker said.

He said the idea for the premiere night was initiated through the Facebook page named Reggae Fans in Fiji and the Pacific. "The page started late last year and already we have about 2600 friends and this has shown the level of interest in reggae here in Fiji and also from around the Pacific.

"There is such a massive following of reggae music here and we thought that a premiere night would be a good way to get together and see a movie on Bob Marley who is the undeniable father of reggae," he said.

Mr Walker said the premiere night was for anyone "with a love of reggae" and encouraged people to don Bob Marley T-shirts or other memorabilia to celebrate the life of the Jamaican star.

A surprise announcement regarding a visiting reggae band will also be made on the night.

Tickets for the Thirsty Thursday program will be available this week.
