Jamaica Your January

As much of the world is awaiting a visit from Saint Nick, our friends in the Caribbean are as busy as elves gearing up for the Jamaica Jazz and Blues Festival set for Jan. 22-24 in Montego Bay.

Headlining the event, which draws about 40,000 fans each year to Rose Hall, is Lionel Richie. Also on the bill are Reunion Jazz Band, Los Van Van, Matisyahu, Ashford & Simpson, Robin Thicke, Alto Reed, Atlantic Starr and Lou Gramm, to name a few.
