Legends of Ska Kickstarter campaign underway

March 12, 2011

Our friends at Steady Rock are taking things into high gear as they inaugurate their Kickstarter campaign to finish the Legends of Ska documentary about the birth of Jamaica’s vibrant music scene and the amazing reunion of many of the architects of Ska including Prince Buster, Derrick Morgan, Alton Ellis, The Skatalites and a host of others. If you’d like to be part of the action, go there, check out the brand new trailer and participate!
