The St. Maarten Tourism Board & Island 92 – FM Offer Top-Notch Entertainment for High Season



Philipsburg, St. Maarten, December 11, 2008 – The St. Maarten Tourism Bureau, in conjunction with on-island radio station “Island 92,” are pleased to announce the St. Maarten Music Calendar for 2008/2009. This exciting line-up of seasoned musicians, comedians and actors, all performing at some of the island’s top venues, are sure to please the many guests and visitors that flock to St. Maarten during the Winter months.


“For long-time fans that have seen the featured performers time, and time again or for those who are just discovering these superstars of the rock & comedy world, the winter line-up provides an excellent opportunity to get up-close and personal with these living legends,” said Regina LaBega, Director of Tourism for the St. Maarten Tourism Bureau. “Historically, St. Maarten and great entertainment have gone hand-in-hand. We’re happy to continue to bring top-quality performers to our guests and extremely excited about this winter’s line-up.”


Kicking off the season of entertainment on December 12th, is long-time comedic legend Gallagher. Most noted for wielding his trademark “Sledge-O-Matic,” Gallagher showers his audience with the pulverized remains of fruit, vegetables, cottage cheese, and pound cakes, however, his show also incorporates intelligent social and political commentary and a plethora of oddball props. Other noted performances this season include:
