Reggae fans across the United States can experience the Marley magic this summer as the Jamaica Tourist Board (JTB) has joined forces with Grammy Award winning reggae artist Ziggy Marley for his 2014 Fly Rasta North American Tour.
The Fly Rasta album, released earlier this year, is the marriage of distinctive Jamaican reggae with elements of rock, funk, soul and pop. The tour started on July 19th and will run through August 24th.
The JTB has also partnered with SiriusXM Satellite Radio for a 12-week promotion to celebrate the Jamaica Fly Rasta tour by offering listeners a chance to win a five-day/four-night stay for two at The Oasis at Sunset Resort in Montego Bay, Jamaica. Airfare is courtesy of the Jamaica Tourist Board.
Agents have not been left out of the action as the JTB is offering them an opportunity to see Ziggy Marley live in concert in their local city. To qualify for this offer, Jamaica Travel Specialists must book at least three trips to Jamaica between now and August 24.
The JTB will have booths in the following cities:
July 26 – The Filmore, Silver Spring, MD
August 1 – Irving Plaza, New York, NY
August 9 – Lake Superior Big Top Chautauqua, Washburn, WI
August 12 – Weesner Amphitheater (Minnesota Zoo), Apple Valley, MN
