History
Third-wave ska arose in the United States following the British two-tone era of the early eightees. See "ska" for a more in depth history.

Third-wave ska arguably started in the United States in the early eighties when Bucket Hingley moved to New York City from England and started The Toasters. Bucket Hingley is also responsible for the creation of Moon Ska Records, a record label that gave small ska bands across the United States a chance to be heard nationally.
