2017 has started off at a brisk pace for Madhen. Already we’ve performed at the Palmengarten in Frankfurt under the watchful eye of both Mozart and Beethoven. The Palmengarten, a beautiful botanical garden, was opened to the public in 1871 and even saw a performance of Buffalo Bill’s Western show in 1890. We’ve also been on the shores of Lake Garda at Gardaland in Italy for Merlin Entertainments. We’ve previously performed many times at both Madame Tussauds and Alton Towers, two of Merlin’s other resorts. It’s always lovely to be asked back.
Birmingham ICC has been the venue for three gigs already this year for a large legal firm, Travelodge and an awards ceremony where the guys of the band played the walk up stings for the prizewinners. Live stings give the room a great energy and having the band on stage gives the presenter something to play off .
Another favourite venue of ours has already put in a showing this year with an event for Nandos restaurants at The Celtic Manor. Not just a great venue but voted Europe’s best golf hotel of 2015. Unfortunately Madhen doesn’t have a keen golfer.
With enquiries for 2017, 2018 and even 2019 coming in thick and fast and the busiest March in the band’s history coming up, 2017 looks set to be a fun year all round.
