Skanking Fools of the World, UNITE!!

skankWelcome. You’ve reached the official site of California Ska pioneers, The Uptones.

Formed in 1981 in Berkeley, while they were still in high school, the Uptones were the first band devoted to playing Ska on the West Coast. The Uptones played to skanking crowds all over the West. Several of their recordings were regional hits, and for a time they were the most popular band in the Bay Area.
