The Upbeat / Press

“The Upbeat has released their third CD to rave reviews. The group has carried on the tradition of ska music for nearly 25 years, with five of the seven original members still in the band. A stalwart in the Southern California live music scene, the band is legendary for their live performances.”

“The Upbeat out of Carpinteria play such an infectious and alluring brand of ska music that they could turn a sobriety checkpoint into a dance.”
