CARIBBEAT: Jamaica College and St. George’s College students to benefit from virtual fund-raising ‘True Blue Sound Clash’

(repost from New York Daily News)

With coronavirus restrictions and innovations in communications technology, the Jamaica College Old Boys Association of South Florida is sharing the virtual “True Blue Sound Clash” with the world next Saturday from 7 p.m. to midnight, through an online agreement with VP Records.

The special musical clash between the Jamaica College Old Boys Association of Florida and the St. George’s College Old Boys Association of Florida was created to replace the big annual True Blue weekend soccer event, which was canceled due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

The event is free, but donations are accepted for the high school’s projects — computer tablets and laptops for St. George’s students, and the funding of the three-month COVID-19 Rescue Plan aiding revenue-challenged Jamaica College.

Donate to Jamaica College at bit.ly/JamaicaCollegeRescuePlan. And visit bit.ly/StGeorgescomputers to donate to St. George’s College.

“A Sound Clash is a musical competition in which crew members/DJs from opposing sound systems use their skills to compete against one another,” according to the organizers.

Popular South Florida radio personality Steven “Sir Rockwell” Warner will be hosting the musical battle, which features former BBC Radio 1 DJ Christopher “Chris Goldfinger” Clarke of Jamaica College versus Chinese Assassin sound system founder Neilton “Johnny Ringo” Lee of St. George’s College, and Jamaica College’s DJ Ronnie up against DJ Fergie from St. George’s College.

“We are pleased to host this Clash on our platform and look forward to the musical competition between two great schools,” said Richard Lue, director of business development at VP Music Group.
