The Up Beat

A new documentary about the 90's SKA scene in Utah will premiere in Salt Lake City on 23rd July.
Director Brandon Smith chronicles the history of SKA in Utah and talks of the vibrant underground scene that they once had.

" 'The Up Beat' focuses on Utah’s ska scene, but also explores the history and roots of the genre. For the film, Smith interviewed a number of prominent figures in the ska scene at large to explain the roots of the music, including Toots Hibbert of The Maytals, Buster Bloodvessel of Bad Manners and members of The Slackers.
