Manchester's The Mekkits play gloriously sunny ska-tinged surfy/folky pop music! Singing songs of the sea, the city, the countryside, animals, love, life and special people, The Mekkits are a must see live act, a party band, bringing the sunshine to everything in their path. Three voice harmonies, earthy acoustic guitar, and a double dose of keys and brass characterise their unusual and un-Mancunian sound.

Mark Bristol sings and plays acoustic guitar. James Chambers sings and plays guitar, keys and trumpet. Adam Costello bangs the drums. Richard Sims sings and plays guitar, keys and trombone. David Smith plays bass.

July 2008.

We've had fun doing a tour of Holland, being on the telly and playing at Wakestock festival so far this summer.
At the moment we are intermittently locking ourselves away in Studio Los Mekkitos recording songs for what should become our first album.
We will be doing a handful of gigs over the coming weeks so be sure to come down and catch us at one. You will not regret!
