Get into the festive spirit with Baked A La Ska as they celebrate Christmas with their Ska of Wonder show. They'll be delivering seasonal ska treats such as 'When You Wish Upon A Ska', 'Walking In The Air', 'We Three Kings', 'Harmonica for Christmas' and many more!
Baked A La Ska are the 'heavy heavy sound' of Manchester and have been serving up the sweetest of good party vibes, vintage ska sounds and an eccentric platter of covers, since 2008.
It’s a band of assembled oddballs and pranksters brought together by keyboardist and wizard Basil Padprik, 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.
The band have released four acclaimed albums showcasing their trademark mix of spaced out and spooky originals, plus quirky covers that have been put through their ska machine.
‘Upbeat anthems and dancehall skanking…wouldn’t you just love to see this lot live?’
