Album Notes
Back Up Jackson is an original ska-fusion band hailing from the great state of New Jersey. Formed officially in 2001, we blend our ska roots with reggae, punk-rock, swing, jazz, and straight-ahead rock influences to create an original sound that's unique and fun.

So aside from a pact with the devil, how exactly did this assemblage of ska misfits find each other? How did Back Up Jackson come to be? It goes back to the summer of 2000... Jay and Dayv had their respective ska bands, both of which went the way of the BeeGees (they broke up, right?) leaving the two in a vacuum of musical nothingness, or at least with a lot of free time. They decided to combine their respective... uh... talents, and recruit a cadre of top-notch musicians to continue the Jersey Ska dream.

The band went through multiple personnel changes before settling on a steady line-up for the production of their debut album in 2005: Jay's brother and former saxophonist Chris Butkowski on lead guitar, original trumpeteer Rob Nelson, the mighty Dave Rattner on trombone, multi-instrumentalist Greg Grispart on tenor and baritone saxophone, founder Jay Butkowski on alto saxophone and lead vocals, composer / arranger Dayv Frost on bass guitar, master keyboardist Reginald Dizon, and featuring drummers Jonathan Tischio of Raceway 4, and Robbie LaFalce of the Miasmics.

This line-up has been playing together since, and with favorites like "Do It All Over Again," "Candle in the City," and "Jesse & Jaime," our well-crafted original music is enjoyed at many live performances. The band's trademark musical hyperactivity has impressed audiences and fellow musicians alike in countless venues throughout the tri-state area. The rest, as they say, is history.



to write a review


BuJ really does Conquer the world!
This CD is by far the best work of Back Up Jackson that I've experienced.. and I've experienced all their CD's! I applaud and congratulate the band on all the work they must have put into this album. It is magnificent, and they should all be extremely proud!!


This is a truly great ska album
While the 'sound quality' leaves something to be desired... the song writing and arrangements on the tracks is way beyond I'd say - 90% of bands over the last ten years that have been calling themselves 'ska-influenced'.
Definitely worth the $8.


BuJ is such an awesome band, there music is great, 5 stars!
