Black and Skabuddah

Laura Black and Russ Scavelli are among the top entertainers in Key West.

They have preformed almost every venue on the Island. I first meet them playing at Capt Tony's Saloon. Great people and great singers.

Fundraising

Sources to find funding for your music

NAMM

Music Making grants support non-profit public service organizations who expand access and opportunity to music education for thousands of individuals and provide innovative music education and hands-on music making programs.

For the past several years, the NAMM Foundation has received hundreds of requests for grants and is grateful for nonprofit organizations around the world who seek to provide opportunities for people of all ages to learn and make music. The hundreds of requests received every year far surpass the Foundation's budgetary resources for grants. Therefore the Foundation reviews and awards Music Making Grant applications by invitation only; the application process is not open for general application for funding from the Foundation

Toko Irie

Toko Irie

 Toko Irie, originally from Grenada, has been jamming island music in Key West for the past 15 years. He is best known for playing the steel drums with an artistic sense of speed combined with a unique 3-stick method of playing. Introduced to the pan at the age of 9, Toko Irie honed his skills on an old steel drum given to him by a pan maker who lived in his village. At age 14, he formed a group with his brother and his cousin and they had the opportunity to compete annually against the island’s best in the Carnival competitions. An age 19, he became the musical director for a 40piece steel pan group who performed around the island as well as on cruise ships.
