    Introduction by KSCR's Punk Director ''The Bear''
"HaSkaLA is explosive! Undeniably unique. A boisterous rallying cry for reason, liberty, and freethought...
obliterating the false alternative of profoundness and fun with increasingly uncommon skill, melodic sensibility, and passion".
-Jeffrey Falk, "Menken's Ghost"
So What is "HaSkaLA"? Valid question Comrade!
Haskala means "Enlightenment" in Hebrew, and that's just what this brand spankin' new L.A.-based ska band aims to do: illuminate your mind, set fire to your soul- and most importantly do it all while making you dance!
Frontman Steven Schub summarizes the choice of band name thusly: "Let's see, ya got the sound of laughter- "Ha", the word "Ska" snuck in there, and our home city of L.A. HaSkaLA is all about all three: Laughter, Ska and bringing Joy, Mirth & Madness to the City of Angels".
Well, HaSkaLA is well on their way to accomplishing this self-imposed merry mission! HaSkaLA appeared on the Ska Stage of The Vans Warped Tour converting almost 1000 kids a day into hard-core "Ha-Heads", and attracting Guest Appearances by Fishbone's Angelo Moore and Dave McWane of Big D and The Kids Table. HaSkaLA's debut CD "Untethered & Undone" sold-out on CDBaby within 24 hours and is a current "Staff Pick" at Amoeba Music in Hollywood.
So there you have it friends! Steeped in the best tradition of classic 2nd Wave Two-Tone ska, this family of spastics is destined to make you sweat, and make you smile. HaSkaLA is here: Prepare to dance or die!
