The Boston JerkFest™ has been successfully produced for 7 consecutive years. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic halting all in-person festivals, we have decided to go virtual this year and introduce Jerk Fridays™ on June 19 and 26, 2020 and Boston Jerkfest LIVE!™ the weekend of July 10-12, 2020. This year's Boston JerkFest will feature Cat Coore, original band member and master cellist classic reggae band, THIRD WORLD, Jamaica's "Reggae Ambassadors"--known for "96° in the Shade." and "Try Jah Love." Cat Coore and other band members will be joining us in an intimate performance and Q&A. THIRD WORLD is a Jamaican reggae fusion band formed in 1973. Their sound is influenced by soul, funk and disco. "Cat" Coore and Richard Daley have been constant members. Boston JerkFest LIVE is July 10-12 and will be the first ever virtual Jerk festival in the country.
