Get into the festive spirit with Baked A La Ska as they celebrate the release of their Christmas album Ska of Wonder. 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, 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’.

Their third album, Gas Mark III, is to be released in June 2015 and sees the band playing their trademark mix of spaced out and spooky originals plus quirky covers that have been put through their ska machine.
