Friends, family and musicians helped the Inner Circle band blow out 50 candles last Saturday at their Circle House complex in North Miami. It was a nostalgic affair with past and present members of the self-proclaimed Bad Boys of Reggae jamming past midnight.

Brothers Roger and Ian Lewis, co-founders of Inner Circle, led the golden anniversary festivities. They were joined by former members Ibo Cooper on keyboards, guitarist Stephen “Cat” Coore, singer Prilly Hamilton and drummer Willie Stewart for a raucous jam session that also involved current members Bernard “Touter” Harvey on keyboards and singer Trevor “Skatta” Bonnick; Third World bassist Richie Daley and singer A J Brown.

Former Inner Circle manager Tommy Cowan, his wife Carlene Davis, Jamaica's Entertainment Minister Olivia Grange, Delano of Renaissance Disco, former Jamaica champion jockey George Hosang, rapper Pitbull, singer Jo Mersa Marley, Third World founder Colin Leslie; singers Michael Rose, Pluto Shervington and Eric “Monty” Morris also attended the event.

Here are some photos of Inner Circle's 50th anniversary gala.
