The line-up for the 2017 St. Maarten Heineken Regatta is steadily being filled with top musical acts. Saturday, March 4th, will feature top Reggae Sensation Collie Buddz as the final performance of the evening on Kim Sha Beach in Simpson Bay, St. Maarten. This is the first time that Collie Buddz will perform for the regatta and organizers are certain he will fit in well with the list of artists scheduled to perform.

Collie Buddz began his musical career at an early age while growing up in Bermuda where he was inspired by the sounds of reggae and dancehall music of his island home. His rise to musical stardom began surprisingly in the UK and Europe with his hit single “Come Around” which topped the charts before it made its way to Jamaica. Since breaking onto the scene Collie has collaborated with the likes of Snoop Dogg and Beyoncé to bring his smooth sounds and upbeat rhythms to the masses.

Regatta Coordinator Nila Hoogenboezem stated “We are delighted with the artists scheduled for the regatta weekend. We try to offer the regatta fans a mix of performances to satisfy everyone’s musical tastes and adding Collie Buddz to the line-up has added a nice mix of reggae to an already exciting schedule.”

“Collie Buddz is slated to perform in Simpson Bay on Saturday, March 4th after the Antiguan sensation Asher Otto takes the stage. Both artists will bring a great Caribbean mix to the party schedule and with the added surprises planned we are sure that the audience will walk away from the show fully satisfied.” Stated Hoogenboezem.
