Special Kinda Madness (Specials and Madness tribute)

Don't Miss Out
Time: Saturday 7.30pm
Cost: £15 Advance

Special Kinda Madness perform a truly authentic set from each band, combining the phenomenally energetic stage presence of The Specials with the wonderful iconic tunes of the Madness ‘Nutty Boys’. Playing a set from each band and producing a show that will have the audience up and dancing from the off, Special Kinda Madness will have everyone hankering after that exciting era of 2-Tone and ska.

On 21st July 1979 at the Electric Ballroom in London, the Specials played a gig with Madness, Dexy’s Midnight Runners and Selecter. That’s a gig that all 2-Tone rude boys and rude girls would die to see, and thought would never happen. The Specials and Madness on the same bill!

In truth, it will probably never happen now … but you can get the next best thing with Special Kinda Madness!

“This has to go down as one of the best nights out I’ve had! Thanks guys.. you’re brilliant!!” – Samantha Hill

“Saw this band for the first time in St.Albans on Saturday. I’ve been to many concerts/tribute tours in my time and this was by far and away the best concert ever. Absolutely brilliant!” – Brett Miller

2 Bands … 2-Tone … 1 Fantastic Night!

7pm doors
