Baked A la Ska [+]

£4 Entry


Baked A La Ska are the “heavy heavy sound” of Manchester ska; an 11 piece band of assembled oddballs and pranksters brought together by keyboardist and wizard, Mr John Ellis.

Baked A La Ska are fronted by an un-holy trio of singers: Mr Frank “the Skank” (smooth Sinatra vocals), Tommy Robot (MC) and the soft lilt and harmonica magic of Robin Sunflower (vegan). Baked A La Ska feature one of the tightest rhythm sections in Manchester with the “chops to make you drop”.

Their sound has already taken audiences and clubs across the region by storm inspiring late night parties and frenzied dancefloor action. It’s a massive, uplifting and raucous mix of spooky originals with an unusual line in covers (each featuring potentially a worse pun than the last).
