    Here is the link to my former band. :rockband: :rasta:

    We are no longer together but I wanted to be sure that people could hear what we did.

    If you like it, I would love to hear what you have to say. :rolleyes:
    If you don't like it, then don't tell me, there is nothing I can do to change it. :D

    Hope you like it. Download all you want.

    Sounds good to me. The female vocalist is a nice touch.

    I was really into ska as a kid back before anyone had heard of a CD. Used to bounce off of the walls of my parents basement to the likes of the Specials, Madness and the English Beat.

    Ska makes for a lively party. Gotta love that!

    Yeah, it is all over the place. The shows we played were so different from one to the next.

    We have played with most of these bands. The Toasters were a ton of fun to open for. They had a great following!!

    I dig it. :cool:

    I actually haven't listen to ska since my teenage h.s. and college days. This reminded me that I still like it. LOL.

    What instrument do you play OP?

    Thanks. Glad it brought you back. It is great music. Was my favorite time of playing. I have done most all types of music and this was by far the most gratifying and memorable.
    I play trumpet.

    Nice. I was hoping you'd say that. The horn section really stood out, and sounded really good! :thumbsup:

    That is cool. Thanks for the kind words.
    The three of us in the horn section used to play in college together, so we all knew each other very well from the other groups we played in.
    And we all had such varied taste in music that I think it comes out in our writing and playing.

    Deevon - we never made it to your side of PA. Sorry.
    We played most far eastern stuff down to about the MD area and up into ME.

    Cool. Well if you ever get into another band and happen to make it over my way. Let me know. I like pretty much every type of music out there. Except for most country. That's just not my thing. Sadly I've been listening to "The Wiggles" a lot lately because of my 2yo and will be seeing them in concert in September. :laugh: Is it weird I'm slightly excited to see em? :p :D
