    • Do you listen to jazz to know any name? What were you waiting to hear? Boy Boy, Prince swany, Raygin King and them other fools?

  1. SLP killed the banana industry so wats wrong with Uwp killing Jazz. Once things not going you a millibugs way u all hv a problem..nothing stays the same pal

    • You idiot so you’re saying it’s OK for government to come in and messup the country once the previous admin did wrong. Wow no wonder we’re in the state we’re in. Chass was right to call u all Jack asses.

  2. 3 days of Jazz’s? Why would I spend so much money to come home for 3 days for such a boring lineup? Please bring the fun and excitement back to Jazz’s again. Even though Kassav is not really about Jazz’s-but people would pay a lot of money to fly home to come listen to them.

  3. The folks at Tourism need to fix or update the website. The bulletin in the public domain is asking for referral to http://www.stlucia.org. for more information. There is nothing there about the itinerary. Who knows how many fruitless searches have been conducted,?

  4. Slp kill bananas , but Compton had already sell his plantation….some Lucians need a serious Lolo befff lash in they ass
