Ska, in Chinatown?

The Uptones bring SKA to Oakland’s Chinatown.

Check out:

the slide show by Alycia Ramirez-Leatherman  before they go onstage.


Ska-T is inspired, he just watched ‘Goodfellas’ in a video kiosk down the street.

Jeanne could care less.

Buster the Ska Doggie

Buster the Ska Doggie was born on July 4th, 2008 when The Uptones released their epic Skankin' Foolz Unite! album. Jesse Michaels drew Buster for the record cover and Buster leaped off of it and started dancing around. Before long Buster had amassed a massive collection of ska records and friends and has been to every single ska show on earth, usually attending at least 100 around the world, all at the same time. Don't ask how he does it. Buster blogs at and you also can find him on FB and Twitter. W00f!
