U.S. Post Office Recognizes The Ska Shrine

The Ska Shrine has commissioned The Uptone’s keyboardist and renowned graphic artist, Paul Jackson, to design the first ever Ska Shrine Postage Stamp.


The Ska Shrine’s purpose – to spread the word about Ska – has been realized with the United States Post Office issue of this first official Ska Shrine postage stamp.  Here’s a link to where you can purchase a book of stamps. That way you too can help spread the word about Ska. Use the stamp often so more people will learn about Ska.

Uptones Guitarists Soar

Eric and Moose popped by the Gibson San Francisco Showroom last week and tried out the Joan Jett Melody Maker and Les Paul Special DC guitars. Photographer Pat Johnson snapped their pic as they jumped for joy with these amazing axes. Eric loved the Joan Jett model so much, he played it on a new recording with the Uptones the very next day.
