Haiti Benefit featuring Voice Mail

Several weeks have already come to pass since the tragic quake in Haiti, but that’s no reason to reduce efforts to the struggling country. The people of Archangel Entertainment are holding a benefit concert/party at Town Ballroom this Saturday (March 6). Voice Mail, a coming straight out of Kingston, Jamaica will be headlining the event. The group has made their mark in their home country and is planning to break the international barrier here. Voice Mail is sure to get the crowd into a dancehall spirit. They began their journey fighting off the heavy competition in their home country by blending heavy beats with soothing, melodic R&B. There’s also going to be a dance contest for those with the best skills, so study up on those popular dancehall moves. The winner will be taking a 47” HDTV home with them. Additional enticing prizes will also be available for the runners-up, and for the younger bunch, try to be early, as the first 200 college students get in at a reduced rate. DJ Dupless (formerly known as Shadow Red) from NYC and Rochester’s own Material Sound will be fueling the dancehall flame.
