Biography

Upground is the young vibrant East L.A. band that has developed a huge following throughout the Southwest in the four short years they have been performing live. Their music is an indefinable blend of Ska, reggae, rock, and CUMBIA! It is sung in Spanish AND English. Their amazing horn section has been widely praised by everyone from the L.A. Times to Tu Ciudad magazine. They recently released their debut full length CD called “Feel the Vibe” which received widespread critical acclaim. An overwhelmingly positive L. A. Times performance review brought larger attention; the CD Release Party for “Feel the Vibe” sold out the famous Hollywood venue The Knitting Factory and nationwide cable network siTV decided to focus on them for their “Jammin” television reality show. In “Jammin”, Upground got to meet and perform with their East L.A. mentors, Los Lobos. Upground went on to win the 2006 Sprint Battle of the Bands, received a publishing deal with prestigious PEERMUSIC and have had their music played on local radio including L.A.’s Indie 103.1 (a major FM radio station), and they were profiled in Tu Ciudad magazine as “the next big thing from East L.A.” The music video for “Oye Chica” landed airplay on LATV, Mun2, MTV3es and internationally on Ritmoson Latino. There has been no stopping the pace. The spring of 2007 found Upground making their debut showcase at the world famous South by Southwest music conference in Austin, Texas.
