Manchester’s premier Ska band, The Uplifters have delivered a pure Ska & Reggae sound since 2005.
A 7-piece band from Manchester, The Uplifters play all waves of ska from Prince Buster and The Skatalites to The Specials and Madness.
Mixing Jamaican music from the early 1960s with two-tone rhythms from the late 70s to create a unique sound, the band has supported legendary acts including Bad Manners, The Beat, and Neville Staple. They also recorded The Specials classic ‘Hey Little Rich Girl’ for the The first Specialized Project compilation album – an organisation that raises funds to improve the lives of teens and young adults with cancer.
They promise a storming live set of well-known tunes along with some original material from their debut album, ‘Who Turned The Lights Out.’
