Last weekend as the world converged on The Bahamas for the 2014 staging of the annual beer festival dubbed ‘Beerfest’, held this year at Marsh Harbour on the beautiful island of Abaco; Dancehall superstar Demarco was tasked with the responsibility of keeping the thousands in attendance thoroughly entertained. The annual festival sees more than fifty craft brewers from around the country in attendance, pouring samples of over 100 of their finest brews—the 2014 staging boast an impressive roster. Which included new and award-winning breweries from Long Island as well as stellar craft breweries from across the country.
With socialites in their element and brims overflowing with brew this proved quite an unexacting undertaking for the Jamaican who has grown accustomed to performing for large gatherings internationally.

I want to thank the promoters and the Bahamian people for their hospitality and I look forward to returning soon.”
