Jam Link International will be hosting the governor of the dancehall, Lt. Stitchie, in Europe from January 28th through to March 16th. Though The Lieutenant already has confirmed dates in Hamburg, Frankfurt, Vienna, Aarhus and several other cities, there are still some open dates that need to be filled. As such, venue operators and booking agents are being asked to contact Jam Link Intl. at firstname.lastname@example.org for information about Stitchie’s availability.
Hot off his UK tour, where he completely captivated audiences at big events such as Hootananny Brixton, Faith Chapel in London, Crystal Palace, Glory House and even Feltham Youth Prison, where he ministered to young offenders, Lt. Stitchie is promising a tour like no other. When asked what his fans in Europe can expect, he said:
“my last appearance in Europe was in 2013 so I am going there with vengeance to unleash a barrage of my old catalogue plus my new music.”

The lieutenant turned pastor converted the patrons that came out to the 2015 Rainforest Seafood Festival in Montego Bay last Wednesday night. With heavy rain pouring down the massive crowd cheered, danced and applauded as Lt. Stitchie delivered an entertaining, inspirational and humorous set.
When he arrived at the event, Lt. Stitchie and his team were advised that the time allotted to him initially would be reduced to 20 minutes due to the late start. With this in mind Stitchie had no choice but to shorten his performance, something the audience was clearly not happy about.
Stitchie took them on a musical journey, teasing them by doing snippets of some of his biggest hits; “wear yu size”, “natty dread”, “great ambition and more. The lieutenant also did some of his more recent releases, tracks like “man a pastor”, which had the crowd laughing at the comical story lines, “fast and pray” and “Lord Almighty” which captivated them. He also did some new exclusive pieces written specifically for the event.
At the end of his set the veteran Dancehall artist was flooded with requests to make additional appearances in Montego Bay (the city where he got some of his biggest breaks and made some of his biggest changes in music).
