Byron lee and the dragonaires on the trail - Byron Lee and the Dragonaires - Wikipedia


Lee discovered music at Mount St Joseph's, where a nun taught him to play the piano as a means of keeping him away from the girls. At St George's, he created an impromptu band with fellow students Carl Brady, Ronnie Nasralla, Alty East and Ronald Peralto to perform at a school dance. The following year, the Dragonaires were formed, with Nasralla as manager and Lee as bassist and bandleader. Although his first bass was homemade, he soon switched to a Fender Precision and claimed to have been the first musician in the Caribbean to play electric bass.
