Join Positive Legacy for a visit to the Ras Astor Black Music & Arts Learning Institute at Trelawny Stadium for a day of interactive entertainment to benefit youth skills development in Jamaica. Students from the Music & Arts Learning Institute will “edutain” us and share the skills they have been learning.
Students will gain inspiration, encouragement and new skills in a one hour interactive workshop with guest musicians and will then jam together in a lunch time jam session. Jam Cruise guests will enjoy a one hour cooking session on Jerk, Jamaica cooking style, by culinary students and will receive a delicious lunch and a free recipe booklet. Students will also lead tours of the Reggae Walk of Fame. Futbol with our Jamaican friends will be offered for those who enjoy kicking the ball around.
Everyone Orchestra conductor Matt Butler will take us into uncharted territory with a unique collaboration between Jam Cruise musicians, Reggae Walk of Fame artists and students from the Music & Arts Institute. As always, audience participation will fuel this once in a lifetime musical experience. Everyone Orchestra Line Up:

While we are in Jammin in Jamaica, Positive Legacy will partner with the Bob Moog Foundation to bring the Dr. Bob’s SoundSchool experience to the students at the Music & Arts Learning Institute. The BMF will present the history of the Moog Legacy and basics of sonic science while allowing the students to create and learn in a fun interactive atmosphere. Experiential stations consisting of different combinations of Moog gear, including theremins, synthesizers, effect pedals and more will be used to teach and inspire the students.
Proceeds from this event will benefit the Music & Arts Learning Institute, where tuition is always FREE. Funds generated by this event will aid the construction of a new audio and video recording studio at the institute. The institute was founded in 1994 by Ras Astor Black and is part of an exciting entertainment and sports complex, including a Reggae Walk of Fame. The institute provides tuition free education in all areas of the arts including music & video production, photography, culinary arts, radio production, broadcast journalism, marketing and advertising.
