Family fun day dedicated to Winston ‘Merritone’ Blake

KINGSTON, Jamaica — The third Merritone Family Fun Day is scheduled for C&J Hideaway in Lithonia, Georgia on Sunday.

Mikey Sparkle of promoters Sparkle Productions, said the event is dedicated to Winston Blake, influential head of the Merritone sound system who died in February.

“Winston was well-loved and respected by music lovers in Georgia, and his fans are very happy that his brother Monte is carrying on the Merritone tradition.

The Merritone brand is very strong in this city, and I am looking forward to a very big turnout on Sunday,” said Sparkle.

Monte Blake is the youngest of four brothers (others being Trevor and Tyrone), who operated the sound system their father started in St Thomas in 1950.

Tyrone died in 2012.

Tomorrow’s event will also feature hometown selectors Rico Vibes, DJ Cold Rice, DJ Migrane, and Bugsy Bam Bam.
