  The House of Dancehall will be raising the bar in local entertainment this weekend with a highly anticipated show featuring the King of Dancehall, Beenie Man, and the iconic Dancehall Queen Carlene. 

 

"We will be going all out. Along with Beenie and Carlene, we have all-female group, Dancehall Rebels, on the dance pole in one section inside, two cars going dub for dub in the parking lot and the legendary Exodus Nuclear doing the early juggling all at the same time, in one venue, for one price," Shona-Lee S. Thompson, marketing manager of House of Dancehall, said. 

 

"It's all happening this Saturday June 24 at 6 Cargill Avenue. It’s rumoured there may also be a dance clash hosted by the original Dancehall Queen Carlene. This is a true customer appreciation night with admission at less than a thousand dollars!"

 

Over the past few months,  House of Dancehall has evolved into a  Mecca for the true lovers of authentic Dancehall, drawing visitors from as far as Slovakia, Croatia and Spain on a regular basis. Seeing a reconstructed zinc fence upon entrance will give the feeling that one is walking into House of Leo, which was coincidentally less than 20 yards across the street. 

 

With the curry chicken and white rice in one kitchen, next to the jelly man with his handcart, beside the jerk chicken pan, all inside the House of Dancehall, one will feel the nostalgia of that authentic Dancehall feeling that almost every veteran talks about. Added treats like the Clarks worn and donated to  the House of Dancehall by Vybz Kartel, to the corner shop inside the bar where one can purchase Dancehall merchandise, be it clothing or books, make the venue very unique.

 

 As Michael Dawson, CEO of Whirlwind group of companies, owners of  the House of Dancehall explained, “there are many forces trying to stop Dancehall from existing, House of Dancehall is here to make the system know dancehall is here to stay; this is why we created this safe multipurpose venue where Dancehall fans from all walks of life can enjoy shows like Beenie Man and Carlene this weekend”. 

 

Dawson is also co-author of the best-selling book, The Voice of the Jamaican Ghetto by Vybz Kartel, which happens to be one item for sale in their corner shop. The company also recently bought into a liquor company and are owners of Ghetto People Publishing, so a Dancehall themed liquor and magazine are on the horizon and will be revealed at the event.
