Curator and Producer of Bands Incorporated - Annually

Bands Incorporated was an annual event that featured self-contained bands.

Damian Marley, Toots and the Maytals, Max Romeo, Chronixx, Protoje, 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.
