Saturday night was surely one to remember, especially for fun lovers who traveled to Jinja to witness the first edition of the Evoke Nights dubbed ”Neon at the Bridge.”
The event that started at exactly 9 Pm, attracted the city’s party folk who traveled from Kampala to attend the first-of-a-kind musical event held at the Forest Resort with a picturesque view of the New Nile Bridge.
Sponsored by Tusker Lite, the event had the New Nile Bridge dressed in attractive bright neon colors, giving the crowds an amazing view of the venue well into the night.
By night-fall, the event featured performances from the all-new Evoke Band, an array of guest artistes including Noble the Beat Boxer and Adore, Isaiah the Composer and Bantu Vibes who had revelers engaged and enjoying every moment of the show.
The highlight of the night was the surprise guest performance from Beenie Gunter, who graced the stage with his popular dancehall hits like ‘Kill a man’, ‘Tompaana’, ‘Tubayo’, while his hits like ‘Olina work’ and ‘Pon Mi’ had everyone in the crowd off their feet.
“Evoke is about empowering youth to go the extra mile by giving them a boundless platform where they can express themselves as they evolve.
As our ‘Lite The Way’ slogan goes, we came, we danced and it was surely lit! We have made a lasting impression with this kick-off episode which goes to show that you should all prepare for the best season of Evoke ever,” said Cathy Twesigye, Brand Manager, Premium Beers, Uganda Breweries Limited.
Also, on the menu were contemporary dances from Evoke dancers, a live band session and crazy DJ mixes from some of the biggest DJs like Sesse, that had the crowd jamming to the music mixes played all night long.
“We have just experienced a marvelous start to our new season! Evoke is going regional for the first time and we are all excited to work with great talented minds all over the country,” said Timothy Bukenya, Creative Director, Evoke.
