  1. This sounds like it’s gonna be “AWESOME.”. Some very close friends of mine, I guess you can say my children, went on a Caribbean Cruise and one of the places of course was ST. LUCIA, . They had a Wonderful time. It was their first time on a Cruise. It was I think , May 2016, I baby set the Grandbabies. It would be nice if they could get there for this JAZZ FESTIVAL, they didn’t get to enjoy any Festivals because they only had a couple of hours on each Island. I would appreciate it if you would tell me how to enter them for this one, I know Alex is taking his wife Elaine again this year, shh, it’s a Surprise, Lol, Seriously, I’m babysitting . Please let me know what I can do to get them this trip. I Thank You In-advance. IN’ CHRIST’. BE BLESSED’ ๐Ÿ‘‘๐Ÿ‘‘๐Ÿ•Š๐Ÿฆ‹. 1/19/2020

  2. Did the Prime minister started jazz in 1985 along with Lansiquot when he was an economist?
    Just want to know. By the way in 1985 he was 24 years.

  3. Desmond Skeete was one of the founders.Desmond was at the University of the VirginIslands with me.He was a forward thinking visionary.

  4. First, they will have to get accommodations. Highly recommend the Rodney Bay area and the areas around it. This provides an option not to rent a car; since they are within walking distance of the main road, and they can hail a public bus.

    Once they are on the island, they can use inexpensive bus travel or taxis which are a bit costly. To enter to the various shows, simply pay at the point of entry. Hardly any reservations are required. I believe that you can buy some tickets online.

    Book your flight early because they tend to get filled fast. Booking late is costly.
