Motelli Skronkle is a Finnish band active since the mid 1980’s. The original lineup of the band consisted of Hannu Raatikainen, theater actor Esko Varonen and the late movie actor Markku Peltola (died in 2007). In 1987, Veli-Petteri Rajanti joined the band and in 1990 Jakke Kivelä joined as well. Since two of the musicians had acting backgrounds, their performances always had a very theatrical presentation, something that originally caught the attention of show goers. The current lineup consists of Raatikainen, Varonen and Rajanti.
