Band of the Day(s)

Well I didn't really manage to get on the internet long enough to put up a band of the day on monday and now its tuesday here on Long Island (ESTzone). As such I decided I would have to choose an especially outstanding ska band so as to cover both days, hopefully my choice will not disapoint. Anyway getting down to the band of the day for yesterday/today(today/tomorrow for some of you) is Streetlight Manifesto. Formed by prominent ska guitarist/ singer Tomas Kalnoky, Streetlight is one of the most active ska bands in the world, and can be seen touring through out the world. Formed in 2002 by Kalonky, all ready a prominent member of the ska world who banded together other notable ska musicians located in New Jersey. These guys have got to be one of my favorite ska bands and I could keep keep praising them for a lot longer, but I'll spare you all the read and let you judge for yourself.



These guys put on one hell of a live show and I can't recommend checking them out enough, if your interested you can find tour info at there official site http://www.streetlightmanifesto.com/
