Third World - (Set time: 11:15 PM)
Third World
Celebrating 44 years, ‘Reggae Ambassadors’, THIRD WORLD is one of the longest-lived Reggae bands of all time, and one of Jamaica's most consistently popular crossover acts among international audiences. Mixing in elements of RnB, funk, pop, and rock and, later on, dancehall and rap, Third World’s style has been described as reggae-fusion.

With 10 Grammy nominations and catalogue of charted smash hits (including “Now That We Found Love”, ”96 Degrees in the Shade” and “Try Jah Love” ) spanning over four decades, sold-out tours, a vibrant and loyal fan base and inspirational messages, one may wonder, Where did it all begin? What gives Third World the staying power so rare in the music industry? Third World is more than just one of the top Reggae bands of all time, it is an institution that stands for producing and performing music that, while holding firm to the cultural and ancestral roots of its members, still pushes forward the cutting edge of music worldwide. It is an institution whose themes are positive, progressive and internationally relevant: an asset to any size festival / event.
 
Third World has performed to thousands of music fans on 6 of the 7 continents: TW toured and recorded with late great Bob Marley, including opening for Marley’s first world tour in 1978, TW recorded and toured with master blaster Stevie Wonder, who produced 2 of their albums in the 80’s released with CBS, they toured America with legendary guitarist Santana, opened for the Jackson 5’s first concert in Jamaica, shared stages throughout the world with the Bono of U2, Sting, The Police, Whitney Houston, Wyclef Jean, Lauryn Hill, Jimmy Buffet, Eric Clapton, Marc Anthony and more.

Third World’s hit songs have reached top 40 on the Billboard charts in the US, UK, Europe and Japan and received a platinum award in Japan. In 1986, Third World received the United Nations Peace Medal for their contribution of music and their lyrical prose. They performed on the MTV Amnesty International Concert at a sold out Giant Stadium in 1986, performed at the Rose Bowl with Quincy Jones, Stevie Wonder and Michael Jackson, Carnegie Hall, Madison Square Garden, the Welcome Home Nelson Mandala concert in 1990, and have been featured at major sporting events including the Lord’s Cricket Grounds in the UK in 2000, and Opening Ceremony for Cricket World Cup in 2007, America’s Cup Bermuda 2017. TW has entertained millions over the television with performances on the Tonight Show with Jay Leno, Late Night with David Letterman, Arsenio Hall Show, Soul Train, Top of the Pops, Shirley Bassie show and more!

We invite you to be entertained by the Reggae Ambassadors, THIRD WORLD!
Jordan T - (Set time: 10:30 PM)
Jordan describes his life as a musician as "a journey guided by Aloha and the wind… I live, breathe, sing, and search for passion, inspiration and adventure like a gypsy. I try not to plan too much – embracing the moments I have for what they are and when they come." His music is characteristic of such a statement in its eclectic nature and continually evolving style. You won't find Jordan singing, playing, or writing only a single genre. His versatility reflects his intent to express all angles of emotions, experiences and life happenstance. In his live performances, you can feel this truth as he puts his heart and soul into the mic to draw you into the stories. From stories of introspection and heartbreak, to stories of dancing and sunny days, you're guaranteed to walk away with truth about his journey in life. You can really get to know him through his music if you're willing to take the time to pay attention. As the Lead Guitarist for the band Maoli, has had the opportunity to share the stage and tour with bands like Katchafire, Common Kings, Fiji, Irie Love, Ali Cambell, The Green, J Boog, and many more.

"I can't sit back and play a single type or style of music. Life isn't that simple to me and for everyone else that breathes air. Sometimes I just wanna skank and enjoy the sunshine and other days it's the opposite. If my music was all the same I would be lying to you, my listener, about my journey. The last thing I want to create is uninspired music." -Jordan T.
