Ska-ing West Rehearsal in Jamaica

Aaron Porter from the marvelous band The Prize Fighters got a chance to visit Jamaica. While there he had the pleasure of meeting some of his heroes, other musicians and even dat down with some of them to play.

Check out this video of the Ska Rebirth Band (formerly referred to as The Young Skatalites) practicing their version of “Ska-ing West”. Ska Rebirth is comprised of recently-graduated players from Alpha Boys School, led by Alpha bandmaster Sparrow Martin (on drums) we talked about before.

Amazing right! More to come including Stranger Cole and Derrick Morgan.

I've been involved in the Los Angeles music scene since at least 1995 going to shows, promoting, spinning records and running labels. Ska and Early Reggae are my passion among other things of course.
