I know blues is not really a "happy" genre but are there blues artist that are more upbeat than the typical blues artist. Is there such thing or would that be considered jazz?
bb king has some pretty upbeat stuff.
edit: aka major pentatonic stuff.
American Deluxe Stratocaster
Deluxe Reverb Reissue

Tbh, blues is all pretty upbeat to me. (Except some of the older delta stuff) The blues is feeling good about feeling bad.

What you're thinking off is called Jumpblues. A west cost style.
Good artists can be Junior Watson, Gary Primich etc.
Lots of upbeat blues. Whole genres of them.
