Upbeat anthems – Baked A La Ska set for Rochdale festival show

10 May 2017

Baked A La Ska

Popular Manchester band ‘Baked A La Ska’ will play the main stage at this year’s Rochdale Feel Good Festival. 

The 11 piece act has performed several sold-out shows at Manchester’s Band on the Wall as well as riotous sets at major festivals including Kendal Calling. They’ve 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!

The band, brought together by keyboardist and wizard Mr John Ellis, is fronted by an un-holy trio of singers: Frank “The Skank”, Tommy Robot and Kuntri Ranks, who combine the soft lilt and harmonica magic of Robin Sunflower, with one of the tightest rhythm sections in the UK.

Their brand of fun in your face eccentricity, infectious feel good music and larger than life personality will ensure a party atmosphere on the main stage on the Saturday when they make their Rochdale debut. 
Baked A La Ska will be joined by previously announced headliner Razorlight, Middleton band ‘The Bright Black’, The Karpets, fronted by Tom Hingley, Honeyfeet and the Delphina Kings.

'Infectious feel good music and larger than life personality'

Rochdale Feel Good Festival returns on Friday, 11 and Saturday, 12 August 2017, for another showcase of entertainment, food and culture.

Our festival which is celebrating its 10th birthday will include live music across indoor venues, a main stage against the backdrop of the town hall, a quality food court and family entertainment.

The festival is funded by us together with sponsorship from The Flying Horse Hotel, Rochdale Football Club, Metrolink, The Royal Toby, Rochdale Town Centre Management and other local businesses.
