Act Profile


"With It Could Be Madness packing a huge popping punch, what's not to love, dance to and generally go nuts to?"

It Could Be Madness are the ultimate tribute to the Nutty Boys. Recreating the energy and excitement of Madness live in their prime, It Could Be Madness are one of the most thrilling and authentic tributes around.

Being genuine Madness fans and taking the music side of things seriously, It Could Be Madness are an exceptional six piece band who are renowned for their electrifying live performances. They feature members of the critically acclaimed 'More Specials' and top musicians who have played with Neville Staples and Roddy Radiation from The Specials, and Bad Manners to name but a few.

With a focus on their early, lively songs, It Could Be Madness play all the classic Madness hits (One Step Beyond, Baggy Trousers, House of Fun, Night Boat to Cairo�the list is endless!), alongside a selection of Madness greats right up to the present day. You won't be able to stop yourself singing or dancing along - or probably both!

From The Wedgewood Rooms, Southsea:
Top night - I'm sure we'll do it again sometime
Geoff (Manager, Wedgewood Rooms)

There are some bands you just can�t cover, and cover well anyway. I would
have thought Madness were in that category, however It Could Be Madness are
doing a superb job as they fill the second slot on tonight�s bill. They
definitely proved us wrong, hats off to them!
Covering legendary tracks such as �My Girl�, �Shut Up� and �It must
be love�. The crowd�s excitement levels are high, with a buzzing
connection between the band and audience!
Just looking around us, the crowd ranges from late teens to those in their
fifties and upwards; dancing freely and having a fu**ing good time.
With It Could Be Madness packing a huge popping punch, what�s not to love,

Electrifying live band, not just a standard tribute!
Play all the Madness classics and selection of other Madness greats.
