Kman and the 45's
Call it what you want, we call it a rocking Ska party. Straight out of downtown Montreal, K-Man & the 45s have been bringing an edge to the Canadian ska scene for a few years now. In 2011 the boys brought you their first full length album entitled Got Me Movin' and released their first video and single The Red Guy Always Wins. Then they began playing non-stop. They have now toured most of the country going from one ocean to another, and word has been spreading quickly that when these guys hit the stage people tend to get wild. Is it the rockin vibe these people inject into their ska? Is it the volume and intensity for a ska show that gets them? Is it the sense of urgency they play with? Whatever it is, they tend to rock their ska so hard that people not yet familiar to ska are now getting into the wave. Often heard at a K-Man & the 45s show: "man I didn't even know I liked ska, this rocks"-random rocker in your city
The year is now 2013.The boys just released a new album called K-Man & the 45s present The Ska-mones Vol 1, a ska tribute to The Ramones! How did we get here you may ask? Well during all these shows over the last couple of years there were times when the guys needed to play multiple sets and K-Man who was always a major fan of The Ramones’ song writing thought it would be a great fun way to pay tribute and make another set of music. Not knowing at the time that people would really get into the concept and began asking for recordings of The Ska-mones set....well, never one to disappoint, here it is on cd and coming to your town. K-Man & the 45s present The Ska-mones Vol 1.
K-Man & the 45s have shared the stage around Canada and at festivals with such groups as The Slackers, The Skatalites, Catch 22, The Brains and much much more. They headlined the first ever Montreal ska-fest evening and have played many others. They have headlined shows all across Canada and are prepared for much more.
