    Too bad... At least it was a really entertaining style :D

    As for Ska, I don't know very much about it but my preferred band is still "The Toasters". For sure ska evolved and it is a good thing. However I still prefer the old style rather the most recent evolution.

    Anyone remember disco demolition night?
    Disco Demolition Night - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    But it still lives on in some ways, the Reel Big Fish disco version of Suburban Rhythm? (wow, this somehow got back on topic!)

    Yeah, Jamiroquai is kind of disco-ish, but full fledged disco with strings is dead.

    My favourite ska band has to be the Skatalites and Tokyo Ska Paradise Orchestra. But I'm more partial to actual songs than bands.
