Jamaica Gleaner / Initially, the 2018 staging of singer Errol Dunkley’s birthday celebration was slated for February. Noting that his birthday is actually February 7 (and not Easter Monday, which this year’s concert falls on), Dunkley said he shifted the date because of the activities surrounding the Grammy win for Damian ‘Jr Gong’ Marley’s Stony Hill album, with the accustomed Bob Marley birthday celebration at 56 Hope Road being expanded.
“There is no big event going on, so people would go to the museum and then come to my show. But this year, they had a big stage,” Dunkley said. So the shift to Easter Monday is not permanent, Dunkley saying, “I will be doing it back in February next year.”
Last year, there was another kind of move for the singer’s concert as it was held at the Police Officers’ Club instead of the Ranny Williams Entertainment Centre, where it was staged in 2016 and will be again this year.
Back to original
Although they are adjacent to each other, Dunkley said the Police Officer’s Club was not to his audience’s liking and he is back at the original venue to stay.
Dunkley, who grew up in Denham Town, Jones Town, and Waterhouse, is working on a new album of 14 tracks, many of which he is producing himself.
It is not an unaccustomed role as he points out , “Many of my songs, is me produce them You’ll Never Know , Your Love is Amazing .
