Manchester’s premier Ska band, The Uplifters have delivered a pure Ska & Reggae sound since 2005.
A polished 8-piece band complete with skanking keyboard, boss horns, and a sweet rhythm section.
Mixing Jamaican music from the early 1960s with Two-Tone rhythms from the late 70’s to create a unique sound. The band has supported the likes of Bad Manners, The Beat, and Neville Staples in recent times.
A storming live set features well known tunes along with original material featured on the debut album, ‘Who Turned The Lights Out’.
