FLYNN IN AGAIN IN NOVEMBER – It’s being billed as the “event of the year” and will benefit the very deserving Port Antonio Marching Band.  It also marks the 100th anniversary of the birth of Screen Legend Errol Flynn plus the 50th year since his death. On Saturday, Nov. 14, some 500 guests will descend on the Errol Flynn Marina’s Cruise Pier to dance to the music of the 50’s and 60’s and reminisce about the days that Flynn brought such an extreme degree of notoriety to the region.  The evening will kick off with a parking area demonstration by the Marching Band followed by a cocktail hour from 7 to 8 p.m. featuring selected wine, cheeses and hors d’oeuvres provided by several of the evening’s sponsors.  The cocktail hour will feature the keyboard artistry of Peter Stoddart and the jazz/blues voice of Trish Chamberlain.  From 8 p.m. until everyone gets tired, Sonny Bradshaw’s “Big Band” will be presenting famous tunes of the era.  There will also be a few elegant ballroom dancing demonstrations during the evening.  Mrs. Patrice Wymore Flynn, Errol’s widow who resides near Port Antonio, is patron of the evening and her grandson, Luke Flynn will also be in attendance.  Luke bears an amazing likeness to his famous grandfather and is also an actor in various action films.  During the course of the evening, there will be a giant screen behind the band featuring a continuous series of photos over Flynn’s 50-year lifetime.  Only 500 tickets will be sold for the event .  Tickets are $5,000 Jamaican dollars each (About $57 USD) and are available at Stewart Auto Sales in Kingston or at the Errol Flynn Marina in Port Antonio.
