Curator and Producer of Bands Incorporated - Annually
Co Curator and Producer of Plug N’ Play - Weekly
Bands Incorporated was an annual event that featured self contained bands, while Plug N’ Play was a weekly event for all types of performing artists.
Both events played an integral role in the development of upcoming artists and musicians from Jamaica over the past decade. The focus of these events was to promote collaboration between younger artists and top tier, internationally recognized artists. Participants included Damian Marley, Toots and the Maytals, Marcia Griffiths of Bob Marley & The Wailers, I Three's, Chronixx, Protoje, the popular French band Dub Incorporation, Polish reggae pop star Kamil Bednarek and many others.
Jubba, an Edna Manley College of the Performing Arts Alumni, wanted more artists to profit from his tremendous musical creativity. Thus, he founded his own production company White Stone Productions in 2011. Carefully handcrafted reggae music with an international appeal and strictly conscious, uplifting message continues to be the inspiration of his business.
