Yesterday we attended a performance of the Jamaica Military Band. It is a free performance at Hope Gardens every third Sunday of the month. The field was filled with families and elderly people from the Golden Age Retirement Home, who sat in chairs at the front. The actual Military Band, clad in their full costumes, performed first, then after a break, another military band took the stage. This one had the crowd dancing and singing, as they put their spin on some reggae classics. It seems everyone had a great time, especially the children who ran back and forth up the hills.
