My years at Antilles Air Boats were very memorable. It was always an exciting place to work while enjoying the many aspects of Virgin Island life. A wonderful part of the experience was the music. Whether it came from the U.S. Virgin Islands, Puerto Rico or down island it always kept you moooving.

Jamesie & The Happy Seven were always the choice for a band at the AAB get-togethers, whether we were in the hangar or a beach park. We would be a dancing all night long. 

I have added various songs from the time and some that I used for AAB videos.  Also added various videos and info on each artist. 

i will continue to add music as it comes to me.
