Manchester’s premier Ska band, The Uplifters have delivered a pure Ska & Reggae sound since 2005.
A 7-piece band playing all waves of Ska from Prince Buster and The Skatalites to The Specials and Madness.
Mixing Jamaican music from the early 1960’s with two-tone rhythms from the late 70’s 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’ which has had featured radio airplay from the legendary David Rodigan on BBC Radio 1 Xtra, and Bradford’s finest, Jonathan ‘Macky’ Mackintosh.
