Welcoming any opportunity to play they performed at school and other small events, Ocean Palm and the J.C.D.C Music Festival where they were awarded the most outstanding popular school band in Jamaica. Smooth Kut formed an alliance with great musical influence such as Morgan Heritage, Randevon Patrick of the famed C Sharp Band in perfecting the sound. Those original members having now progressed beyond high school the mantel has been taken up by Zachary “Bosslexx”Stewart on bass guitar, Danielio “Protein” Donaldson on keyboard, Zidon “Bubblegum” Hibbert on drums and Brandon ”Berto” Johnson who is the most recent addition and whose keyboard skills is said to add more spice to the band. They showcase their skills regularly playing at school concerts and general devotions and have also entered the J.C.D.C music festival where they too were awarded the most outstanding popular school in Jamaica.

Who’s the teacer?

He is a graduate from Edna Manley College of Visual and Performing Arts and first too a teaching position at Seaforth High School in 2002. When the position opened up for a drummer in C-Sharp Band however he jumped at the opportunity to play, having become disenchanted with teaching. A period of playing for studio recordings and international travel followed including representing Jamaica and reggae music at the Jamaica Independence Celebration held in Beijing China and working with phenomenal artist such as Third World’s Ibo Cooper Tarus Riley, Turbulence, The Might Diamond, Stephen Marley, Toney Rebel, Queen Ifrica and Rita Marley. In 2010 he decided to reconnect with the students and resumed his post at Seaforth High. He now combines working as C-Sharp drummer with teaching music and helping to groom musicians of tomorrow.

The band’s slogan “NO ROOM FOR MISTAKES!” is serving them well as they seem unable to put a foot wrong. Of JBSB 2018 they say they have it already. Weh you seh?
