After many years playing up and down, coast to coast, over the pond and beyond with his group The Leftovers, and solo group The Kurt Baker Band, rock n’ roller power pop musician Kurt Baker decided he needed a new change of scenery and packed his bags in 2013 for the city of Madrid, Spain.
Hence, the Kurt Baker Combo was formed, a new group consisting of Juancho Lopez on bass guitar (Paul Collins Beat, Peralta, The Crepitos), Jorge Colldan (Holy Sheep, The Flash, Señor No) on guitar and backing vocals, and Sam Malakiam on drums (Alrighters, Los Platillos Volantes). While continuing in the tradition of the power pop sound Baker has been known for, the Combo also brings in elements of Pub Rock, Garage and no holds bar wild rock n’ roll a la The MC5, The Remains, Eddie and the Hotrods and Redd Kross.
Their first studio full length album, titled “In Orbit”, features 10 songs of catchy and irresistible rock n’ roll and was released on Little Steven Van Zandt’s Wicked Cool Records in the fall of 2016.
In May 2018 the band released their second album “Lets go wild” on Wicked Cool. And now they are back on the road touring in January!
