Due to its overwhelming weekly crowd support, the organisers of Bounty Sundaze have decided to move the event from Village Blues Bar, to a much larger venue in Club Riddim.
The decision was made approximately two weeks ago when the promoters saw that the ever-growing audience were finding it difficult to manoeuvre the limited space offered.
As of this and every Sundays after, the event will be held at Club Riddim (formerly The Building), a move which dancehall mogul Bounty Killer deemed inevitable.
“The reason for the change of venue is that the size of Village Blues Bar (located in Orchid Plaza) is kind of too small to accommodate the growing patrons. We already knew this but we were just looking something new and different when we moved from Lime to there,” he said in a release sent to THE STAR.
He went on further to say that, “for the last three weeks people end up on the balcony due to the large turnout and limited space so we had no other choice than to relocate to the Building (Club Riddim), which is Jamaica’s number one dancehall club.”
A church service was held inside the club last Sunday afternoon in attempt, according to Bounty Killer, “to purge out stains left by certain individual who use to be in there”. The event will continue to be sponsored by Hennessy.
Though many would want to think that this is a form of partnership between the artiste and businessman Corey Todd, Bounty’s assistant Cross Chris, who also manages the Alliance Next Generation camp, made it clear that the initiative is of no such nature.
“This should be a plus in many ways as this is a more centralized venue with easier access for patrons. It also allows more patrons to attend the event on Sunday nights. We are just happy to have Hennessy as our sponsor,” he said.
