I am a...
SKA Enthusiast, Musician
I am Steven Denney Shafer II, I love the ska. I love Traditional Jamaican ska and American third wave the most. I own a website called skapedia (check it out at skapedia.com) and I sing in a local third wave ska group The Pocketeers. I dance at shows, I support local bands, I am friends with most of the ska kids around here, all that stuff. I sometimes wear a 2tone suit, sometimes just t-shirt and jeans. You never know what to expect!
I also like reggae, punk, and swing music, but ska is without a doubt closest to my heart.
