Etana back on Jamboree line-up

Etana is back on the Irie Jamboree line-up, after pulling out earlier this week.

The reggae singer was booked for Irie Jamboree, which will be held tomorrow at York College, New York.

When THE STAR contacted Etana, she explained the reason for originally pulling out, saying she had been rehearsing with the C-Sharp band, but later found out that the band was booked to play for another act and was unable to play for her as a result.

She decided to work with Caution Band. However, they did not get the music on time and the rehearsal was not going as she wanted.

"That was not the performance I want to give. At this time, I want to give a proper performance," Etana told THE STAR.

She also said that at this point in her career, she would not want to give a performance that is below par, as it may be recorded and placed on various websites.

Nonetheless, Etana says she has found a solution. She decided to go back on the show, using a couple members from C-Sharp and some of her own musicians.

"We are going to do something different, only because I don't wanna disappoint my fans. I wanna make sure that my performances are up to par," said Etana, who was scheduled to leave the island for New York this morning.

Some of the other artistes on the Irie Jamboree line-up include Freddie McGregor, Ken Boothe, Assassin, Sean Paul, Spice, Lady G, Queen Ifrica, Chino and Mr Vegas.
