The first edition of the Bell Jamz All Star concert in 2018 featuring Jamaican Tarrus Riley was so massive that, the bar was set so high for the organisers to repeat the feat or better still make it even bigger this year, whether they will pull it off remains to be seen.
However, what we are sure of is that, they are not sleeping on the laurels as preparations are in high gear for this year’s edition which is also expected to be massive. Local stars are not taking chances either as they have been in intensive rehearsals at Swangz Avenue putting final touches to their vocal chords, keys and rhythms.
As the 2019 edition of Bell All Star Tour Concert approaches, the amazing lineup of the young Ugandan artists has been knee-deep in rehearsals for the much awaited grand finale to be held on 23rd August at the Lugogo Cricket Oval.
This year’s concert will feature Jamaican Reggae and dance hall legends, Christopher Martin and D Major in a show that has been described by those involved in preparations as “never before seen”.
Throughout the week, Spice Diana, Beenie Gunter, Nina Roz, Daddy Andre, Sheebah, Vinka, Chozen Blood and many other stars have been locked in the studio painstakingly going through their stage routines with the support of a wonderful team of talented instrumentalists and vocalists headed by the great guitarist Myco Ouma.
The stars have been rehearsing as a team so as to stay in sync with the backup vocalists and instrumentalists ready for action come D-Day .
This year’s hotly anticipated All Star concert themed, “Celebrating the Fresh and New” and the All Star Tour is the brainchild of Bell Lager’s musical platform – Bell Jamz. The buildup started with up country tours which featured unforgettable regional concerts in Mbarara, Gulu, Kabale, Masaka and awaits the finale in Kampala next week.
