The Alpha Boys Band capped an amazing year of group and individual effort with a fabulous performance at Reggae Sumfest 2019 in Montego Bay. Alpha vocalist Rohan Mitchell describes what it felt like to be on the biggest stage in Jamaica. Many thanks to all friends and supporters.

The #ABSRSHORTLIST is a short list of Alpha music put together by our friends at Alpha Boys School Radio, a 24/7 streaming radio station featuring music by Alpha past students. Each of the four songs below has a player and links to more information. The Jamaican Independence Short List is a tribute to August 6, 1962, the day Jamaica made official its independence from Britain. Ska music was the sound track to independence and the short list starts there before moving to rocksteady, reggae and funk. Listen blow and follow the links to more information about each Alpha graduate from Alpha Boys School Radio.(more…)
The Alpha Boys Band performed the opening set at Reggae Sumfest 2019 last Saturday night in Montego Bay. It was the school’s first time on the Sumfest stage but the crowd acted like they knew Alpha all along. Playing a range of ska, rocksteady, reggae and dub including an original piece, The Alpha Boys Band led by senior music instructor Clayon Samuels struck gold with Alton Ellis ‘Breaking Up Is Hard To Do’ and classics like the Answer and Real Rock riddims.
