Jersey Ska band Back Up Jackson was formed in the winter of 2001 when original members Jay Butkowski, Dayv Frost and Rob Nelson (and a bunch of other guys and gals) organized on the campus of The College of New Jersey. Shortly after its debut, the band tweaked its line-up, adding Dave Santin on guitar, Jay’s brother Chris (originally on Tenor), Dave Rattner on Trombone, and Reggie Dizon on keys. Adding in saxophonist extraordinaire Greg Grispart and permanent fill-in drummer Robbie LaFalce, the band has played colleges and clubs, bars and backyards, bringing their mix of high-energy virtuosity and eclectic influences to audiences in Central Jersey and beyond throughout the early part of the 2000s.
Recently, the band has been on a touring hiatus, but has been busy in the studio, completing their second studio album (fourth altogether, if you count the live-recorded “Money-Making Scheme #1” and “Money-Making Scheme #2”).
