Event Description

Victoria Ska & Reggae Festival (XVIII) in affiliation with
Victoria High School R&B Band proudly presents
a special key-note address featuring Booker T. Jones with Keith & Tex.
Soul & Rocksteady Reggae legends together for the first time!

Victoria BC Ska Society in partnership with the Victoria High School R&B Band
is excited to present this first time key-note address ft. Lifetime Grammy
Achievement & Rock N' Roll Hall of Fame Inductee Booker T. Jones with Jamaica's
legendary rocksteady/reggae duo Keith & Tex.

The goals of the session are to provide youth and the general public a greater
understanding of the roots of Jamaican rooted music focusing on how American
soul, R&B and Stax Records artists have influenced rocksteady and reggae
practitioners in Jamaica and throughout the rest of the world.

Booker T. Jones and Keith & Tex will give key-note addresses to the audience
followed by a question and answer period. The Vic High R&B Band led by Eric
Emde will also perform a short set at this historic event.

Join Booker T. Jones, Keith & Tex, The New Groovement and Garden City Soul Club at Ship
Point Inner Harbour following this key-note address. Ship Point event runs 4pm - 10pm.
All Ages. Kids 10 and under free with accompanying adult.
