ROD SPENCE Motto: 'Never Give Up On Your Dreams' 'Keep The Faith And Be Positive' Rod Spence, born in Jamaica, developed a very strong interest in Entertainment at an early age, loving a variety of music, and performing at many School Functions. Rod recorded his first Single in 1969 on the Beverley's label, and also did Back-up vocal for Artists such as, Derrick Morgan and Desmond Dekker (in Jamaica). His love for Entertainment came back to life after performances in the Ft. Lauderdale/Miami area at some of the top Caribbean Clubs, Weddings and various Charity Functions in the eighties. In 1986 Rod decided to produce his first album, which was released in 1988, getting airplay in the Ft. Lauderdale, Miami, Houston, New York, North Florida, Jamaica and London areas. Rod still performs in the South Florida area at different functions such as, Weddings, Church Concerts, Office Parties (Offices like SunTrust Bank and Greenberg Traurig Law firm included on Las Olas Blvd.), and Charity Functions. He also is the Lead singer for the Mighty Vikings Band, (based in Miami) who does different functions such as Ballroom Dances at places like Signature Grand Hotel, Ft. Lauderdale Convention Centre and Deauville Beach Resort and Stage Shows at different venues such as, the AT &T Amphitheatre. Rod does a variety of music, including Reggae, Religious, Soca, and R&B. He has performed on Shows with many popular Jamaican and International Artists such as, Hopeton Lewis, Boris Gardner, Marcia Griffiths, Cynthia Schloss, Culture, Ken Boothe, Alton Ellis, Derrick Morgan, Tyrone Taylor, The Melodians, Desmond Dekker, Ken Lazarus, Byron Lee And The Dragonaires, The Techniques, Freddie McGregor, The Manhattans, The Bluenotes and The Moments just to name a few. Rod likes to perform songs by a variety of artists (of course including his own original material) going back to the fifties. Rod's second album (CD) "First Prize" is now available, and he's very proud of the work, which includes original materials (Reggae and others). He also has Religious CDs available "The Spiritual Side Of Rod Spence Vol. 1 (How Can I Cry)" and Vol. 2 (Tell Him So). Rod is always working on new songs, some of which he writes and help arranges. Rod's a natural born entertainer who loves what he does dearly and believes in quality music. When appropriate, he also enjoys adding some Religious music to his performances. Give Rod Spence the opportunity to pleasure you - you will love what you hear - guaranteed! All my hard work paid off after finishing each album (CD), and I'm very proud of the work, which is produced by myself with the help of some great friends in the business. Jah Bless everytime.
