What needs to be considered after 29 years of this awards event is how to produce a show that not only showcases the best of the best but how to present it in a timely fashion so that everyone can enjoy the evening. Unfortunately, we were unable to remain for the full presentation due to the interminable time it took to present the awards and numerous proclamations. We were fortunate to see Gramps Morgan, Dean Fraser, Brigadier Jerry, Tony Rebel, and the indomitable Alison Hinds. However, we missed Tarrus Riley, [Julian Marley], Queen lirica and some of the other top artists slated to perform.
