about

The Alcapones Boulder, Colorado

Ska/rocksteady music with a mix of vocal and instrumental tunes in a style reminiscent of 1960's Jamaican music. From high energy, foot-stomping ska songs to deep rocksteady grooves and reggae riddims, they are complemented by the jazz stylings of a smooth three-piece horn section, thumping upright bass, bright rhythm guitar, and drums that will continuously inspire your feet on the dance floor. ... more

Track Name: Hold On
Hold on
To all of your memories
You lived with your family
Under a big oak tree
But they're so far away

So hold on
Hold on to what you've got
It might not seem like a lot
but it's worth a shot
a little bit's all you need

A little bit's all you need
To be happy
A lot could lead to greed
And pain
Look inside and see
Your potential
As a beautiful human machine

That's what you've got to hold on
The music it moves you now
And you're dancing anyhow
I know this crowd
Has got nowhere to be

So hold on
Don't you let go till the end
You know I'll be 'round til then
And i'm still your friend
You can count on me

You can count on me
To remind you
To look inside and see
Your soul
Breathe and let it be
Your compass
Because you have a body
You are a soul
