Thousands of enthusiastic supporters that showed their support for Cable Bahamas receiving the next cellular licence descended on Fort Charlotte on Saturday to enjoy live entertainment, at Cable Bahamas’ REV Jam Fest. This free family event brought together the country’s top performers to entertain Cable Bahamas subscribers.
Scores of residents took the opportunity to show their support for Cable Bahamas in the cellular licence race by chanting “Turn Us On,” during several high points of the event.
Cable Bahamas Vice President of Marketing David Burrows said REV Jam Fest was an overwhelming success. “Since the launch of our ‘Turn Us On’ initiative in January, we’ve been building anticipation among our supporters and this celebration has really exceeded our expectations,” Mr Burrows said.
Those that signed up to join the “Turn Us On” VIP mailing list received REV gift bags filled with tokens of thanks to express the company’s appreciation for their support. These special guests also gained access to a VIP food and beverage tent where they indulged in all the Bahamian dishes that local vendors had to offer.
Popular radio personality Renée “The Natural Empress” Davis served as host for the REV Jam Fest and helped keep the excitement alive throughout the evening. Jam Fest was packed with activities and spectacles for the entire family to enjoy including face painting and stilt walkers to entertain the kids, along with cotton candy and other favourites.
A flash mob performance by the REV dancers also captured the audience’s attention, along with musical performances by the energetic youth of Bahamas All-Star Marching Band, Bodine Johnson, Tingum Dem band, and The Bahamas Rat Pack – comprising DMac, M-Deez and Sammie Starr – who gave high-energy collaborative performances. The event came to a close with a Junkanoo rush-out featuring Colours Junkanoo group.
Performers threw towels branded with the campaign slogan “#TurnUsOn” to the dancing crowd of fans to reinforce the message of the company and it’s supporters as Cable Bahamas continues its bid to be the next cellular provider in the country. Supporters also took photos with hashtag cutouts related to Cable Bahamas’ mobile campaign to share along with other exciting moments at the REV Jam Fest via their social media accounts.
Cable Bahamas is a 100 per cent Bahamian-owned company, and remains as one of two possible candidates in the running to receive the second cellular licence in The Bahamas.
