Grammy Award winner Michael Bolton is expected to headline at the Tobago Jazz Experience 2019. The surprising announcement was made via the Tobago Festivals Commission’s Facebook page yesterday afternoon.
It stated: “With 2019 mere days away, how are you supposed to live without your past for the next Tobago Jazz Experience? Here’s some motivation to get you excited and ready! We reveal one of the headline acts for 2019, Grammy Award Winning Musician Micheal Bolton.”
Although the budget for next year’s event has not yet been disclosed, the commission promised to announce several other jazz acts in January at the media launch for the event.
