Upbeat Sneakers Short Info

"You're a bit young to be playing Ska!!!"
This is the type of comment people make when they first come across Upbeat Sneakers, but in 2016 Upbeat Sneakers will be bringing ska back into the mainstream with the release of their new tracks.

To support the release the band will be bringing their modern take on the ska genre to audiences across the UK, and it in the hot and sweaty live environment you find the answer to why they play ska, people want to dance but they want to dance to real songs from real musicians with real energy. Coming from the sometimes maligned Welsh Valleys town of Merthyr Tydfil, Upbeat Sneakers are 8 young people aged from 14 to 21 years of age who have already started to prove to people that they can start a party.

Since starting in 2015 they have regularly played live, attracting early interest from record labels, producers and promoters with their infectious Upbeat tunes coupled with lyrics that have something to say to people across generations.

Swn festival described Upbeat Sneakers as " Proper ska lifers, despite being a gang of kids from Merthyr Tydfil, Upbeat Sneakers bring rough and fresh bursts of energy and swagger to their chosen genre. Fusing classic Prince Buster style to the kind of boisterousness that the Libertines or Arctic Monkeys used to have, it’s ska heaven in a pint glass, like a Wetherspoons on Bond Street, so get stuck right in." and YPN tweeted "Say hello to your favourite new festival band @swnfestival it'
