The energy was live as fans from different areas of the Carribean came together at Fords Amphitheater in Brookyn to celebrate reggae and soca music at On Da Reggae & Soca Tip which was brought to you by Red Stripe!

We saw everything from artists going into the crowd, to fans coming onto the stage and everything in between during this years show. If you weren't there we have what you missed!

As they do every year, Bobby Konders and Jabba set off the vibes of the night as they hyped up the crowd with reggae and soca classics. While the sun set of the water on the Coney Island Boardwalk, the show began with K'Coneil who followed up by Xyclone who left everyone looking at his dancers acrobatic moves!

In a show full of talented women, Alicai Harley flew from overseas to be with us last night, and rocked the crowd with her hits, followed up by Jada Kingdom and Nailah Blackman who brought out the energy and her soca vibes on the stage.

Young Chow then continued to hype up the crowd, where they got a chance to rep their heritage!
With the rise of Afrobeat whos influence crosses genres, there had to be someone who represented the continent of Africa and that was Afro B! He went through a catalog of music before hitting his fans with his hit single Drogba (Joanna).

Cham continued the show with one of the best performances of the night as he went through new music, and classics such as "Ghetto Story," "This Is Why I'm Hot" (Remix), and more!

It was the Bobby Konders and Jabba's turn continue the party with tracks like "Palance," "Swag Surf," and a shout out to latinos with Elvis Crespo's classic hit "Suavemente." At one point during the break, he introduced Megan Ryte, TT Torrez, and Jen Brooklyn to the crowd as they danced behind the stage.

Ding Dong kept the energy going as he covered some dancehall classics, and brought the party to the crowd as he jumped down and partied with fans, took selfies, all while not missing a beat on the music he was performing! He then brought a woman on stage to dance with them, and to everyone's surprise she took the spotlight with her moves! He wasn’t done there. He also surprised the crowd with a surprise performance by Ricky Blaze.

Following the boost of energy, Spragga Benz took the show back to Kingston, and Skinny Fabulous brought the soca vibes back on stage with his hits!

The biggest pop of the night came when Shenseea hit the stage, and she did not disappoint. The Jamaican dancehall artist jumped off stage to get a bit closer with her fans, and even let a couple finish her lyrics in the microphone. After performing her hit song, "Blessed," she decided to give fans a chance to show off their skills with a dance contest.

Busy Signal capped off a great night full of fun, dance, hits, and of course some Red Stripe!

It was a fun night! For more on what you missed during last night's show see below.
