T.O.K. Reggae Band
T.O.K. – Reggae Band – Confirmed for BeachFest!

T.O.K. is a dancehall group from Kingston, Jamaica. The group consists of Alistaire “Alex” McCalla, Roshaun “Bay-C” Clarke, Craig “Craigy T” Thompson, and Xavier “Flexx” Davidson. They are best known for such hits as Footprints, Gal You Ah Lead, and Eagles Cry.

The group’s origins can be traced back to the early 1990s while the members were still attending school. Alistaire McCalla and Xavier Davidson were friends, and McCalla recruited Craig Thompson and Roshaun Clarke who were fellow members of the choir at Campion College in Kingston and T.O.K. was born. The group got their initial break in 1993, after a stint playing at high school parties and hotels, they finished second at the annual Tastee Talent Competition. Their performance was noticed by the local record producer Stephen Craig of Nuff Records. After voicing some tracks for Craig’s label, they were signed to a recording contract to Sly Dunbar and Robbie Shakespeare’s Taxi label in 1996, and released their first single, “Hit Them High.” Later that year, they signed onto Richard “Shams” Browne’s High Profile label and released two more singles, “Send Them Come” and “Hardcore Lover” with Lady Saw. The latter tune was popular, climbing the Jamaican dancehall charts, and earned them a contract with VP Records. In 2012, the group became independent of their contract with VP Records. They are now working under their own label, X.C.A.R.R. Records.

  1. Are there buses that will go from base to base to pick up people for the fest? I heard there was something like that last year.
