It wouldn’t seem right to do Rock & Roll a to z without talking about at least one ska/reggae band. The Upbeat fit the bill for today – a ska band that starts with you. . . I mean U.
They have been together since 1985. I was eleven and had no idea what ska or reggae was. Honestly, I didn’t know about ska until about 1995.
Check out this band. They’ve done shows with Sublime, Fishbone and No Doubt to name a few. It seems like they know what they are doing. It would be cool if they had more songs, videos, albums, etc.
P.S. There is also a completely different band called The Upbeats.
