Neville “Quattie" Rhooms - Toronto


Neville “Quattie” Rhooms started collecting vinyl records in 1977 influenced by his good friend Rudolph “ Sweet Ruddy” McLaughlin. His musical pursuits took him on many trips to Monica, Sam’s and Kop’s record stores in Canada. A past student of St. Mary’s College in Jamaica, he was an active member of their alumni in Canada between 1978 - 90 and played an integral role in their many fund raising activities.

He mentions Dennis Brown and Gladys Knight as his favorite artistes. Neville joined the VRCA team in 2012 and with his background and experience of service with the St. Mary’s College Alumni he is a good fit for our organization.

Gilbert "Gil" Scott – Jamaica

Gil Scott was a member of the planning team for the 2017 Memorial Weekend (MWE) 20th anniversary hosted in Jamaica. An eloquent speaker he did duties as Master of Ceremony at our Dinner and Award function 2017. Gil was also instrumental in raising sponsorship for this milestone event.

A lover of Vinyl Gil has played at two MWE events; New York 2016 (Friday night Meet & Greet) and Jamaica 2017 (Monday picnic). He also attended our inaugural Retreat 2018 in Florida and was invited to our meeting as a guest.

Some of us may recognize the name “De Student” on the Collectors Korner Now network (CKN). That’s Gil.
