The Man With the Pan


Byron Lee, undoubtedly one of Jamaica’s finest musical ambassadors and with 46 years of experience and over 150 awards he continues to command respect and admiration world-wide.
He attributes the success of Byron Lee and the Dragonaires to the image and reputation of a band, comprising of slick-looking member that would take minimum breaks, play good music and ensure that patrons got their monies worth.
The Dragon’s “no bull” attitude helped shape the current industry. He was against musicians being slighted by management be it clubs or individual. Byron, along with other major players in the music industry revitalised the Jamaica Federation of Musicians, enlarging its membership with a band-registration drive, and giving its president Sonny Bradshaw the clout he needed to operate.
