The Cavaliers Band

The Cavaliers Band


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.

In front are the vocalists:

Lloyd Wilks
Norma Fraser
Honey Boy Martin
