The Duppies: Kings of Florida Traditional Ska

The DuppiesThe Duppies from Gainesville, FL have played Ska/Rocksteady for the better part of a decade and they don’t seem to be stopping anytime soon. The term Duppy is Jamaican patois for ghost or poltergeist, no doubt expressing their deep connection to Jamaican music and culture. They have been frequently compared to Toots and the Maytals, but this group is uniquely Floridian. They have recently played with the likes of King Django, The Slackers, Sammy Kay, and Chris Murray. The Duppies have evolved over the years and are on the verge of releasing a new record available only in vinal or digital copy.

There are plenty of songs available including their cover of Reggae Night Food. A live debut of their song Shake and Move was filmed recently. Their most recognizable original song to date is Two Things. All of the Duppies CD’s and Merchandise are available for purchase on their online store.
