Founded in the 19th century, The Alpha Boys School in Jamaica has influenced the creation of SKA and REGGAE music in Jamaica and around the world. This school's musical alumni includes members of The Skatalites, Yellowman, Ken Boothe, Bob Marley, Toots and the Maytals, Rico Rodriguez, Desmond Dekker and many more. Victoria BC Ska Society is collecting instruments that the school needs and will be sending them down. Long & McQuade in Victoria BC will make sure they are in working order.
