I'm sure many of you are familiar with the mysterious (yet exciting!) Legends of Ska trailers that have made the rounds on the internet since 2002. Many often wondered if the movie would ever come out and be available for release.
Now is the time!!!! Brad Klein (aka General Moses) has launched a kickstarter campaign to get this movie finished, released, and pressed on a dvd. He needs your help to get this nearly decade old project done for your enjoyment!
Think of this like pre-ordering the dvd - with the current amount that has been contributed, 1654 people would need to "pre-order" the dvd to get it pressed. Are you very passionate about ska? Contribute more! Look at what else you could get for supporting this project:

You will meet Ska legends Derrick Morgan, Stranger Cole and King Stitt as well as spend a night out in the country at the home of the great balladeer, Lord Creator. Cap off the week by chilling out in Negril for a couple days before returning to your home a changed person. Please take a look at the new trailer, contribute to this project, and be a part of getting this project completed!
