Channel One Sound System is made up of Mikey Dread, his brother Jah T and MC Ras Kayleb. Mikey and Jah T started the sound system in 1979, making this their 40th year.
Channel One Sound System have been performing consecutively at Notting Hill Carnival for well over 35 years. Channel One's corner, on Leamington Road Villas welcomes thousands of people every year visiting Carnival from all over the globe.
Costs for Carnival increase every year, and the total cost of us performing, is now well over £2300. We love to perform but would also be grateful if people - Carnival attendees, fans or reggae fans could help us cover some of these costs. Currently we are paying for the following
Security - 900
Truck hire - 700
Barriers - 180
Licensing - 70
Insurance - 20
Dubplates - £££
If you could help us out we would be very grateful! Thanks in advance and see you at Carnival!
