The 10th staging of the Lions Club of Kingston's Musical Delights, set for Sunday, February 11 at the Jamaica Pegasus Hotel at 6:00 pm, will see the return of Richie Stephens to the local stage after a long absence. He has been credited with reintroducing ska to the world through his Ska Nation Band, which incorporates the Jamaican dance.

“Patrons can look forward to an outstanding show with performances of the highest standard. So it is going to be a real treat for both loyal and new patrons,” Errol Lee, Immediate Past District Governor of Lions Club International and show producer, told Jamaica Obsever.

Musical Delights is the annual fundraiser for the Lions Club of Kingston's Sight Foundation Clinic which offers walk-in service, at a minimal cost, between Monday and Friday from 9:00 am to 5:00 pm at 30 Beechwood Avenue in Kingston.

“The show has lasted for a decade because we found a winning formula. We start on time, end by 10 p.m. and each year we ensure that we have top artistes who patrons enjoy,” said Lee.

Also returning to the Musical Delights stage tomorrow evening will be Admiral Bailey, who was a staple in the early days of dancehall.

Other performers on the show will be crowd favourite George Nooks, Maria Myrie and a new artiste Jasmine Black, who is making waves.

Lee's Bare Essentials will be the backing band, with Dr. Michael Abrahams as MC.

The Lions Club of Kingston's Sight Foundation Clinic has been in operation for 30 years, but has outgrown its current space. The club plans to construct a new building at a cost of $50 million to include the latest medical equipment and an operating theatre. The local club is to raise $25 million, which will be matched by overseas partners: the Lions Club International and the Canadian Vision Services.

The Heart Foundation, also on Beechwood Avenue, was launched by the Lions Club of Kingston 47 years ago and has since evolved into the largest non-profit organisation in the Caribbean.
