The Dragonaires line-up, in the video, seems to be fairly close to that on the back of the Caribbean Joyride LP
( Byron Lee And The Dragonaires  ( FLP 103 ), c 1964 ), namely:

Sammy Ismay ( Tenor Sax ) Rupert Bent ( Guitar ) Barry Lloyd ( Drums ) Victor Chong ( Congos ) Norris Ridguard ( Trumpet )
Chester Power ( Trumpet ) Carl Brady ( Bongos ) Vernon Muller ( Trombone ) Keith Lyn ( Vocals ) Tony Gregory ( Vocals )
  Granville Williams ( Electronic Organ ) Byron Lee ( Bass )


In comparing the photos of the above people to those who appear on the video, the list seems fairly accurate,
with only Ken Lazaus ( Guitar ) not being mentioned above. On the back of the Atlantic album ( ATL 5010 ) it states:


“Ska is the name of the dance that is done to the Jamaica Ska music, and more and more people are dancing the Jamaica Ska
every day. The new dance rage began on the Island of Jamaica in Western Kingston. It wasn’t long before all Jamaicans
discovered the excitement of Jamaica Ska and started dancing to it. News about Jamaica Ska music soon reached music circles
in New York, and Atlantic Records decided to bring the authentic music of Jamaica to record buyers in the United States.
To do this,Atlantic, with the co-operation of the Jamaican government, arranged to make recordings of the music in Jamaica
using the top Jamaica Ska singers and instrumentalists. Jamaica Ska music took over as the most popular dance Jamaica has
ever known. At the rate its popularity is spreading, it may take over the whole world.”
