IF YOU'RE feeling a bit down about the winter cold, then reggae junkie Joe Tee might be the guy to bring a bit of sunshine into your life.

Mr Tee will lead the Jamaican-themed celebrations at the Ipswich Multicultural Projects International Cafe this Saturday night.

The event features interactive reggae and calypso music - to be performed by Mr Tee - plus a three-course menu of Jamaican-influenced food.

The enthusiastic performer said visitors should bring their dancing shoes and prepare to get involved.

"I will definitely get the crowd grooving," Mr Tee said.

"I will be starting with a bit of reggae, then work up into some calypso sounds - a bit of fast, dancing music."

The Ghana-born performer took an early interest in the music of Bob Marley and Jimmy Cliff, spawning a love of reggae and Jamaican-styled music that has resulted in him becoming a regular performer.

Mr Tee uses the talking drum and keyboards in the show.

"A bit of my African roots will come through in the music," he said.

"I was influenced by Bob Marley and a love of reggae music."

On the menu will be a combination of jerk chicken - with a little extra chilli on the side for those who like it hot - with vegetarian options too.

Dessert will include pineapple with cream.

"Come with your dancing shoes because we will definitely be getting some interaction happening," Mr Tee said.

The International Cafe will be staged at the Masonic Hall, on the corner of Nicholas and Roderick Sts, from 6.45pm on Saturday.

The cafe will be preceded by the Roderick St Markets, outside the Masonic Hall, from 8am-noon on Saturday.
