About the event
“The UK’s no.1 tribute to the nutty boys!”
Tribeca Events is proud to present a night with ‘Complete Madness’! The band were formed in 1994 out of a band called ‘Beat The System’, which itself was born in 1989, with original members Mark Keegan and Derek Wood, who are still with Complete Madness today.
In 1992 they added a few Madness songs to their set such as Night Boat To Cairo and Baggy Trousers. The band started doing showcases and signed to an agency and with their growing popularity began to add more Madness and Specials songs to the set.
In 1994, with the ever changing set becoming more Ska influenced, they decided to change the name of the band from ‘Beat The System’ to ‘Complete Madness’.
Complete Madness have performed in venues and theatres around the UK and abroad, including Army Bases both home and abroad, plus festivals including the Cork Jazz Festival between 1996 and 2005, winning rave reviews.
Complete Madness are now in their 25th year, and each year go from strength to strength, adding new songs to the set such as a Ska version of Bruno Mars’ ‘The Lazy Song’ and Paulo Nutini’s ska hit ’10 by 10′.
‘Madness – Greatest Hits Show’ will be hosted and compered by DJ Jay Rachet. Jay is a mainstay on the local club scene, as well as being an accomplished radio presenter and MC. Expect the perfect warm up set before the live show, followed by a Ska-inspired after show party to keep you and your guests dancing all night!
