Christmas Party Night!

At the Number 39 Hopstar Brewery Tap we are still talking about the last amazing appearance of 'Baked A La Ska', Manchester's fantastical 11 piece band with the heavy-heavy monster sound. So it's with great anticipation that we welcome back the full band to our stage.
The band brought together by our old friend keyboardist and wizard Mr John Ellis will be putting on a seriously good performance and spectacle which is certainly not to be missed.
"Just as Madness fused English quirkiness with a punchy Jamaican beat, so this Manchester-based outfit possess their own brand of in-your-face eccentricity. They have a sharp eye for cover tunes, too: Steve Miller's Abracadabra and Disney's slithery ditty Trust in Me, from The Jungle Book, both receive memorable updates. As for the originals, there are echoes of the the unpredictable Vivian Stanshall amid the upbeat anthems and the dancehall skanking. Alien and Who Shot the Milkman? are weird but infectious. Wouldn't you just love to see this lot live?" - The Sunday Times
"...irrepressible jollity as an eclectic bunch of songs get supercharged and skanked. Utterly bonkers but irresistible." - Manchester Evening News
Get along to the Baked A La Ska website for plenty of sample sounds and video.
