Scotchies began with a hunger for jerk done the right way, this explains why their food is authentically Jamaican and undeniably good.

The ONE Caribbean Music Festival is proud to announce Jamaican restaurateur, Scotchies, as the title sponsor for the annual 2 day festival. Made famous from their mouth-watering, finger licking, and perfectly seasoned jerk chicken and pork, Scotchies will take center stage at the ONE Caribbean Music Festival on December 13th & 14th, 2014 being held at the Central Broward Regional Park.

Scotchies began with a hunger for jerk done the right way, this explains why their food is authentically Jamaican and undeniably good. Scotchies originally opened because good jerk food in Montego Bay wasn't available. It started as a hobby in December 2000 in a small shack on the roadside in Coral Gardens, Montego Bay. As long lines began to develop outside this small shack it was clear that something much bigger was happening. A friend suggested the name 'Scotchies' from the spice Scotch Bonnet peppers used to season jerk meats. Good news travels fast and news about the good jerk food travels even faster. It was eighteen months before a sign went up, there wasn't any real need for one. Soon Scotchies was the talk of Montego Bay and as demand increased, this little restaurant burst into a franchise with outlets island-wide in Jamaica and one restaurant in Belize. The news gets even better for diners in America, plans are in the works to bring Scotchies to South Florida. Their transition into Florida will have a musical backdrop as patrons of the One Caribbean Festival will be able to taste this amazing food while enjoying an incredible concert.

Music and food are paired as part of the Caribbean experience. So it is only natural that Scotchies, the best in Caribbean food, would partner with the One Caribbean Festival, the best in Caribbean festivals. This relationship began in 2002. Since that time Scotchies has been a constant presence at the Jamaica Jazz & Blues Festival, celebrating its 19th year in January 2015 and whose team is simultaneously producing the One Caribbean Music Festival. So on December 13th and 14th lucky concert goers in South Florida will have the opportunity to have a taste of Jamaica through juicy jerk pork and chicken along with delicious festival, roasted sweet potato and breadfruit if it's available. Scotchies is looking forward to providing Florida "an array of Jamaican goodies for many years to come."

The mission of ONE Caribbean Music Festival is to recognize and celebrate the diversity of Caribbean people and the ONENESS of the culture through food, arts, crafts, and music. The event is a unification of people and traditions of the Caribbean through unique expressions in music - food - arts and culture. A cross cultural event, there will be sounds of reggae, soca, reggaeton, kompa, calypso, salsa, merengue and ska - mixed with an exotic atmosphere of scents, flavors and beautiful people.
