Breezes & Hedonism Resorts
Runaway Bay, Jamaica
December 11-15, 2008
When you arrive in Jamaica, the locals welcome you home. All 800 of us felt that - bands, fans, and staff alike. Now that we had the lay of the land, everyone came back full of enthusiasm and ready to start the party!
There is something about sitting by the pool all day and watching shows on the beach at night that is delightful. Hosts the Disco Biscuits and Umphrey’s McGee each played 3 full shows. Telepath rocked it late night, Mad Professor was back by popular demand, and Wylls & Zach Hagan spun in the Disco. The one and only Toots and the Maytals graced us in his home country and Toubab Krew performed two amazing shows as well.
Three of our four days in Jamaica had stellar theme nights and daily activities where participation was rampant! Even Brendan Bayliss and Aron Magner were spotted getting playfully competitive during a pool volleyball game and the annual tennis tournament. Ever slam dunk a basketball and get a high five from your teammates? That’s how we felt after Caribbean Holidaze 2008.
