You know, I'm kind of surprised that I can't find any mention of any ska bands in this whole forum... or is that blasphemous and I didn't get the memo?

But really, I love listening to some of the jazzy ska bands (mostly the local, now dead bands) my favorite being My Man Friday, and some Stretch Band, along with Just Add Water. Mmm goodness.

Hmm... where to begin... I must express my grattitude to stretch (or the artist formerly known as stretch armstrong and stretch magnifico, etc...) and mmf. I've probably been to more mmf concerts than any other band. Then I gotta give props to cedar city's The SOULutions. Who knew cedar could produce such a soulful band. But moving to non-local bands, new york ska-jazz ensemble, skavoovie and the epitones, the original specials, the selecter, and the toasters got me movin' whether I was in my kitchen or jammin' in my car. For live performances, the (never soul'd out) pietasters (and my first REAL show), the reorganized Specials, Rancid, and (my faves) Hepcat and the Slackers are the cornerstones of my love for music (esp. live). Lastly and far from leastly, I gotta pay trib to the Skatalites, Desmond Dekker, Jimmy Cliff, the young Bob Marley, the Toots and the Maytals ,and the other original rude boy of Jamaica for teaching me to simmer down.

o/` SKA all over the world! o/`

Hello the rude boy! That's awesome! You know some good stuff. I'm so jealous, I never got to see mmf in concert, or stretch armstrong. I didn't learn about ska till it was too late and it was dying down. The only band I did catch the tail end of was the Kindertones, and I didn't even know what was going on before it was all over Sad

Ska? I love Ska! There's a place in Logan that has ska concerts. I went to one in honor of Skank Patrick's Day. In fact, I even ran into T-Roach on my way out!

Hey speaking of, does anybody know what's going down for Skalloween this year? I've been totally out of the loop, and it doesn't look like Muse is going to have it this year....

It's just Club NVO (formerly known by a lot of different names). There's always a variety of shows there, ska, punk, hardcore, emo, and everything inbetween.
