Last week I saw "Horace Panter's Uptown Ska Collective" live at The 229 Club and took some terrible photos...

Bassist with the Specials for 35 years, Horace Panter a.k.a. Sir Horace Gentleman introduces his new project tonight, Uptown Ska Collective. An all star line up joins him onstage to perform classic Ska & Blue Beat tracks along with new material.
"I have wanted a band like this for years" says Horace, "the guys I am using are all seasoned musicians; they all know one another so the musical rapport is amazing and, like me, they live and breathe this stuff."
