Coral Reefer Ralph MacDonald Dies

December 18th, 2011


Longtime Coral Reefer Ralph MacDonald died early this morning after battling lung cancer.

From his humble beginnings as the son of Caribbean immigrant parents, MacDonald followed his family’s musical heritage and, in the process, defined the the very nature of percussion in American music.

Our condolences to Ralph’s friends and family.
