WHAT TO DO TO PASS TIME IN THE EVNING, AT THE JEWELL
Resident band here good, it plays every evening, four piece, till 11 o'clock. There is a pianist who plays after 11, on a different area of the resort, called the pool bar. There is also a DJ for the night owls, until 2 pm
Yesterday we had a treat as we had a man Jamaican cabaret artist doing a singing show, with old songs such as some Atlantic and rock from late 50s and 60s. And a lindy hop. He had a smart black suit and two-tone shoes and did a good lindy with one of the guest volunteers.
Most of time music on the resort is always reggae, not possible to buy any old Jamaican ska or bluebeat in the town, which is about 3 miles away and has not got a record shop, people here do not seem interested in old stuff. No surprising I guess, since I bought my music in the 1960s.
The entertainment staff, who are very friendly and well trained, do hold kind of jokey reggae dance classes by the pool during the day and seem to think that we tourists do not know how to move our hips in an appropriately Jamaican way!!!
Some of these staff, particularly the girls, dress up and look gorgeous for the dancing in the evening, dancing the band or to any guest singer. They wear tights dresses and very high heels, and have got the Jamaican hip wiggle to perfection! The men really enjoy it, and there is a lot of laughter and clapping. The several young men on the staff have a good dance routine too, verging on rap moves.
