If you’re thinking that the musicians here look like members of the “SHIEKS” Orchestra then you’re right. The line up is the same, but the band name is different. For various reasons, the group is now known as the “Cavaliers” and may well be the only co-operative dance orchestra operating locally in Jamaica.
Each member has a share in the band and the profits are divided.
Manager is Bill Gentles. The line up (left to Right) are as follows:
Jackie Mittoo Lloyd Spence Noelyn Taitt Lloyd Knibbs Roy Sterling Johnny Moore Headley Bennett Bobby Gaynair.
