Toby’s Resort Live Jazz Night Feat. Joseph Leighton and David Lyttle on Feb 9th, 2020

At 7pm on February 9th, 2020 guitarist Joseph Leighton and his mentor, David Lyttle, will be performing at Tobyโ€™s Resort. Guitarist Joseph Leighton has been hailed as one of Irelandโ€™s brightest new jazz talents. Now 22 years old, he and David have played over 60 dates in the Middle East, South East Asia, Ireland and are now bringing their performance to Montego Bay, Jamaica.

Joseph Leighton comes to Jamaica to trace his paternal Jamaican roots but as a teenager in Derry, Ireland he was initially a teenage rock prodigy. His interest in jazz was sparked after a meeting with David Lyttle, a MOBO nominated drummer. Following awards from Moving On Music and the Arts Council of Northern Ireland, he has been under the tutelage of guitar icons such as Jesse van Ruller, Mike Walker and Peter Bernstein. In 2016, Joseph travelled to Canada to attend the Banff Centreโ€™s Workshop in Jazz and Creative Music and was under the direction of Vijay Iyer.

The person who inspired Joseph down this jazz guitar path, David Lyttle, has been both a mentor and international tour partner. In the past year, in addition to his touring with Joseph, he has performed in China, North America, Holland, Spain, the Middle East, SE Asia and Switzerland. David is a MOBO Award nominated drummer and has been described by the Independent as โ€˜representing the best in jazz coming out of Irelandโ€™. David being a prominent jazz drummer has collaborated with a long list of jazz visionaries from Kurt Rosenwinkel to Joe Lovano. In 2017 David brought the wonderful music of jazz to new audiences in the United States in his coast-to-coast residency performing for cowboys, bikers and UFO tourists, and more recently on his extensive Irish tour of small towns, villages and islands.

Admission: $1000JA with a complementary drink.

Miss Global International 2020 Visits Jamaica

Toby’s Resort in January of 2020 had the pleasure of welcoming Alice, the current reigning Miss Global International, to stay at our resort during her mission trip in Jamaica.

For the past 3 years, Alice has lead a creative yet powerful charity project in Canada, where she collects donations by dancing on the streets of Toronto. To date, she has raised over one million Jamaican dollars for children in need, just from the pocket change of strangers walking by.

On her trip to Jamaica, Alice has spent time at the local SOS Children’s Village in Barett Town, St. James and performed at a charity concert to raise further funds towards the charity. Stay tuned to see more updates from Alice! On her Instagram and Miss Global International Instagram.
