Brigadier Jerry @ Jack Ruby Dance ’86

Brigadier Jerry, born Robert Russell on September 28, 1957 in Kingston, is a Jamaican dancehall reggae deejay whose lyrics are strictly roots & culture. A member of the Twelve Tribes of Israel Rastafarian branch, Briggy (as he is affectionately called) often chats verses directly from the Bible, and preaches against the evils of slackness in dancehall music when performing. He attributes his unique pattern to melding together the styles of a few artists who came before him, including U-Roy, Prince Jazzbo, Big Youth, and Dennis Alcapone.
