Freeport, Grand Bahama Island - After a highly successful twin city tour in the Abaco's in February, Uppercut 242 returned home for a gala celebration at Taino by the Sea.

From Uppercut 242 struck the first chord, the dance floor packed and remained so for every tune. When Uppercut 242 took their break it was Bonfire time. The atmosphere was electrifying and folks did not want to go home.

The business owners stated that the Saturday March 3rd launch event netted the highest level of Dinner reservations to date and as a result have already booked Uppercut 242 for a second show during March. The second Dinner show will take place on March 31st. We encourage all to start booking reservations for this Dinner/ Show now at Taino By The Sea Restaurant.
