The Upbeatniks are a fun and fresh take on music inspired by the sound and presence of the Beat Generation, which coincided with arguably the apogee of modern music: the jazz of the 1950s.
Before there were "hipsters," there were "hepcats," said Keruoac. Berets, black clothes and bongos coexisted nicely with exciting jazz, blues and contemporary sounds. We honor not only the great writers of the Beat Generation, but legendary jazz artists of the time as a dynamic tribute ensemble.
While the '50s are a cornerstone, we perform the sounds of the entire jazz spectrum, along with both the music of more contemporary performers and our original compositions.
