Act Profile

Madness and Ska

Hey You! Don't watch that, watch this, this is the authentic Madness sound ...

Once in a while a band comes along that has the ability to capture, captivate and tell fantastic stories through song. Madness is one of these bands. For over 30 years they have been entertaining us and providing the soundtrack to many memorable and special times.

"Madness and Ska" have been together for just over a year and are a group of Two Tone loving musicians that bring the Madness experience to your event. Not only are "Madness and Ska" a tribute to the great band itself but also a celebration of Two Tone and Ska, which include such inspirational bands as The Specials, Bad Manners and The Beat to name a few.

This fantastic genre of music manages to make you smile and stomp your feet to the rock steady beat. Whether male, female, young or old, "Madness and Ska" will leave you wanting more but Hey You, don't take my word for it, come and check us out for yourself! Prepare yourselves for the carnival which is pure Madness...
