|Some random guy in Yardbeat. Not Bobby Ellis. He plays trumpet.|
Well, whaddya know? Not half bad ska from a band I never heard of. Yardbeat, a semi-current outfit out of Jamaica. There's hardly anything about them online, so you've got what I could find. Two songs, a dated looking web page, and a live video from 2013, showing them without any visual flash whatsoever. Total street clothes. You could see them at the hardware store, or Best Buy. But they sound great, the sax solo in the video is super baddass. If you're at all skeptical of current ska, and I'm with you on that, you should know that trumpet demigod Bobby Ellis played with them at some point, and if you're at all skeptical of current ska, you probably know who he is.
