Stick Mareebo and Queen Jigzie will be joining forces to bring all the good vibes and take us through proceedings as MCs for the evening.

The Alpha Boys School has been providing schooling and vocational skills to underprivileged and troubled youth in Kingston for over a 130 years.  Alpha is best known for having been the training ground for many important musicians and singers of ska, rocksteady, reggae, dancehall and jazz including Don Drummond, Dizzy Moore, Owen Gray, Johnny Osbourne, Desmond Dekker, Rico Rodriguez, Yellowman, Horsemouth Wallace, Eddie “Tan Tan” Thornton and dozens more.
