Dr. Cheeko has been playing music all his life. He came from the Islands to Miami and landed in New Jersey fifteen years ago. His showmanship has kept fans coming back time and time again receiving enthusiastic receptions in the US, Europe and South America.
For over a decade, Random Test Reggae Band has been rocking the Jersey Shore with music heavily coated in Caribbean traditions. With members hailing from all over the Caribbean, the group brings a cache of authentic reggae and calypso rhythms in true West Indian fashion. Random test takes you on a musical journey that pays tribute to pioneers in reggae and soca music. From the early days to today, staying true to the real roots and culture.
