The Prizefighters are back in action with a brand-new LP of the heaviest-hitting ska, rocksteady, and reggae in town. With a critical eye on the future and grooves that echo the Kingston dancehalls of the 1960s, Punch Up cements The Prizefighters as top contenders in the worldwide reggae game.
The Prizefighters have honed their reggae bona fides, having teamed up with heavy hitters of '60s Jamaica, playing as the backing band for artists such as the “King of Ska” Derrick Morgan, legendary duet partners Stranger Cole & Patsy Todd and Roy Panton & Yvonne Harrison, and most notably harmonica player and vocalist Charlie Organaire, whose playing can be heard on hundreds of early Jamaican ska and rocksteady hits. The Prizefighters and Charlie Organaire released a trio of 45rpm singles on Jump Up! Records, and toured Europe together in support of Charlie Organaire Meets the Prizefighters.
Punch Up is The Prizefighters’ third full length LP released on Jump Up! Records, following 2010’s Follow My Sound and 2019’s Firewalk.
