ABOUT US

“UPBEAT ANTHEMS AND DANCEHALL SKANKING…WOULDN’T YOU JUST LOVE TO SEE THIS LOT LIVE?” - The Sunday Times

“UTTELY BONKERS BUT IRRESISTABLE” - Manchester Evening News

“RETRO-HIP ENOUGH FOR THE COOL KIDS YET GRANNY CAN SHAKE HER BONY HIPS AROUND TO IT TOO” - The Independent on Sunday

Baked A La Ska are the “heavy heavy sound” of Manchester, a super charged 11-headed ska monster on a rampage through the dance floors of the UK leaving a trail of skanked out bodies in their wake.

It’s a band of assembled oddballs and pranksters brought together by keyboardist and wizard Mr John Ellis, fronted by an un-holy trio of singers: Frank “The Skank”, Tommy Robot and Kuntri Ranks, who combine with the soft lilt and harmonica magic of Robin Sunflower. Baked A La Ska also feature one of the tightest rhythm sections in Manchester with the “chops to make you drop”.

The band have release four acclaimed albums showcasing their trademark mix of spaced out and spooky originals plus quirky covers that have been put through their ska machine.

Baked A La Ska are synonymous with legendary shows at Manchester’s Band On The Wall and have performed riotous sets at the Kendal Calling, Matthew Street, Saddfest and Hungry Pigeon festivals.

Booked Baked A La Ska for a Birthday Party
5.0   Verified review

From the minute they confirmed the booking they communicated politely quickly and effectively - very enthusiastic about the event

They arrived early and were very professional when setting up - putting on my own playlist in between sound checks

The show was awesome - they were absolutely bloody brilliant - it was a small party as a lot of guests didn't get there with the weather but the atmosphere was still buzzing - every guest said they were brilliant - the texts I got today are all commenting on the band

Could not have been better - I will remember the night for the rest of my life
A gang of smashing lads - thank you xxx
