This event is all ages

From singer to sound-system operator, to rapper, back to singer, to singjay. Chino has no intentions of being categorized; instead, he sees himself as an unconfined musical artiste: one who also plays a myriad of instruments including the guitar, drums, piano and bass. In addition to all that, Chino still finds the time to write, co-write and has produced tracks for artistes such as Daville, T.O.K, Wayne Marshall, Elephant Man, Kiprich, Delly Ranx and of course his father, Freddie McGregor.
Yet another major milestone in his career was a collaboration with his father, There's a Reward For Me on the Grammy-nominated album Anything for You. His career has evolved even further since then; a few years ago he released his debut album, Unstoppable in addition to a slew of singles: Inna di Club (on the '12 gauge' riddim), the smash hit Redbull And Guinness and Ghetto Whisky both feat. Delly Ranx, Formula, Do So Fah (on the 'Breaking News' riddim), and Gyal Ting (on Roach's 'Mad Ting' riddim) just to name a few, which were monster hits in the dancehalls across the island and overseas.
More recently, Chino has doused the local and international scenes with a bucket of hits including: Pon Yuh Head, Protected, From Mawning, Ruff It Up, Gal Dem Waah Mi Style It Fi Dem, more recently and more.
In addition, he is one of the official faces of Coca-Cola Zero in Jamaica. This multifaceted artiste has toured major countries and their cities, including: New York, Miami, Alabama, Mississippi and London, numerous parts of Europe, Africa, Japan, Bermuda, U.S Virgin Islands in addition to various Caribbean Islands.
Chino, who completed a three month US and European tour alongside his father and other Big Ship artistes in the summer of '09 plans to release two albums this summer, Never Change, for the Japanese market and another for the US .
Also this year Chino released a number of singles, which still continue to dominate the reggae/dancehall market including: Before Dem Gone, Rave We A Rave featuring Konshens, Mus Come Back and others. Undoubtedly, Daniel "Chino" McGregor continues to keep his eye on the prize: to not only steer the "Big Ship" successfully into the future, but also confirm that this musical mastermind is in fact UNSTOPPABLE.
Songs were written, feet were shuffled, guitars were strung.
