The OneUps is a band that plays video game music. If you think that's weird, you've come to the right place. Video game music isn't your older brother's "bloops" and "bleeps" anymore. That's something this band aims to prove with their arrangements varying in musical styles from Rock to Bluegrass, from Death Metal to Funk - The OneUps do it all. Our first album, The OneUps Volume 1, is available now from our Albums page. But don't miss our live show featuring non-stop hours of music from the likes of Super Mario Bros., The Legend of Zelda, Chrono Trigger, Blaster Master, Dr. Mario, Mega Man X, and so much more. Poke around the site and see who we are and why we do what we do.  
 
Fayetteville, Arkansas based cover band performing strictly video game music. Mostly they play funk and jazz, but they branch out to a lot of genres. Their first CD is out and you can check it out here (with samples) or download the band's other free songs on the music page.

FYI
Hornpipe2: Please don't hate on me too much for posting this - yes, I am in the band and so I guess this is sort of self-promotion... but I thought you guys might enjoy it anyway. Maybe I should have asked someone else to post it instead?
FuzzyDave: Gave you a 10.  
 
It's cool to promote your band and the website.  
 
Thing is, now that you've posted it, whenever you have updates and such, you need to post the updates as a comment to this Link, not as a new link.  
 
You can also post a journal entry announcing an update to your band's site.
scilec: 10 here too. :-)

Kassi42: They're really great live. I've been to every show, including the first one done in 2002. Glad you guys are liking them.
Some recordings and pictures
Kassi42: Here are some recordings and pictures from the last show (scroll down). The recordings are not of full songs, but snippets from some of their newer songs.  
 
I gave Vega's theme a listen because that's my favorite song that they play (a duet with Greg on Violin and Spanish Guitar), but I didn't listen to Donut Lifts. There is a picture of me, too. I'd really recommend dling Vega's theme.
