In response to all of those ``Isn't ska some dance form of reggae?''

postings to (news:alt.music.ska), and sundry emailings with helpful ska
fans.

Acks:
       Michael Cancilla (mailto:mcancill@polyslo.calpoly.edu) posted a long list
of ska bands that I have incorporated into this FAQ.  That list has grown
to list over 500 bands!  Mike Fragassi (mailto:mfragass@ucs.indiana.edu) emailed
me about 10k in response to my request for more info and is still at it.
Thanks Mikes!  Thanks also to everyone else in a.m.s and other reaches of
netspace who sent me info.

       Dance harder!
