Mancheska formed in 2012 inspired by the music of ska originators The Skatalites. Since then, they have gone from strength to strength performing at venues across the city. Highlights include performing at Matt & Phreds, Antwerp Mansion, Pangaea Festival and headlining the Friday night of Manchester Jazz Festival 2014 to a sell-out crowd.
"Mancheska had the Matt & Phreds crowd on their feet from the first note. This young band blew us away with their high octane performance and the synergy between the musicians was a joy to watch. If Mancheska are playing near you, go and see them! They are Matt & Phreds' recommended band to watch 2014." - Claire Turner, Manager, Matt & Phreds
