“BOOM GT TAYLOR CHRISTMAS EXTRAVAGANZA” MOVES TO NEW VENUE FOR DECEMBER 25!

New venue, same vibes is the unofficial slogan for this year’s Boom GT Taylor Christmas Extravaganza. For the first time in 15 years, the show will not be held at Independence Park in Black River, St. Elizabeth. It moves to the Luana Sports Complex, just a stone’s throw away from Independence Park.
GT Taylor, founder and promoter of ‘Extravaganza’, said the change in venue resulted from differences with the St. Elizabeth Parish Council, proprietors of Independence Park.
“They rented (the venue) to another event two days before our show without telling me. That’s extremely bad treatment considering we brought recognition to the venue,” said Taylor.
He is confident the Luana Sports Complex will be an adequate alternative.
“I’m sure our patrons will be more than comfortable there.”

This year’s ‘Extravaganza’ is another star- studded event. Anthony B, Glen Washington, Wayne Wonder, Freddie McGregor, Sanchez, Beenie Man, Bounty Killer and Sizzla are confirmed for the 16th staging. For the second straight year, the Boom GT Taylor Christmas Extravaganza will contribute to the Jamaica Cancer Society.
“We all have someone who has been affected by cancer. This is something I’m very passionate about,” said Taylor. The show will also continue its long association with the St. Elizabeth Care Committee to assist the parish’s homeless.

First held in 2000 at Hendrick’s Wharf in Black River, the Boom GT Taylor Christmas Extravaganza is one of the most popular gigs during the packed Christmas entertainment season.
