Originally hired to design, engineer and build the infrastructure as well as produce the marketing for Central Park, a new state-or-the-art concert facility in Negril, Jamaica, Amanda and David's commission greatly expanded when the project broke ground.
Produced by Uhuru Promotions, the music production company founded by Amanda and David, the very first concert at Central Park featured a retrospective of talent ranging from the early days of Ska to contemporary Reggae. This event won the 1993 Jamaica "Show of the Year" award.
