First wedding of the year!
26th February and it was off to Cripps Barn near Bibury in Gloucestershire for our first wedding of the year!
We performed as SO 80′S for an 80′s themed evening of entertainment with the guests
We were treated to a lovely meal and fine wine by the gorgeous couple. They couldn’t have done more for us
Such a beautiful setting and wedding
We play in some amazing places around the world and it was the beautiful Cornish Eden Project that was our venue on 10th February 2011
We’d been invited by the lovely people at Danone to perform at their party
We last played for them at Madame Tussauds in London and they were brilliant!
If you haven’t been to the Eden Project we highly recommend a visit as it’s like turning up to something out of this world!

On arrival we were even treated to Cornish Pasties, which didn’t last long with MADHEN in the building!
After much food and drinks we took to the stage for a brilliant night. Definitely the best crowd this year
We love you Danone! x
Y Viva Espana
It was off to Spain again this week with Vision Express
A very early start after the gig the night before in London. We managed 2 hours sleep before driving to Luton to fly to Alicante
Vision Express hold an exhibition and awards ceremony every year and we were invited along to perform for their party
The venue was the beautiful Barcelo Asia Gardens Hotel & Spa with amazing views across the skyline of Benidorm
We flew out the day before and were invited that evening to join the guests at the world famous Benidorm Palace for a night of entertainment!
It was such a great night. We had a 6 course meal and 2 hours of entertainment including dancers, singers, acrobats, trampolinists and balancing acts! Much better than we had anticipated.
The next day we managed a few hours lazing by the pool before soundcheck and a cheeky orange juice in the sun!
It was a long afternoon sound checking back at the conference room at the hotel before getting ourselves ready for the show.
We had actually been booked to perform our 80′s tribute show SO 80′S, but managed to convince the organiser to allow us to perform as MADHEN as he’d never seen us do this set!
We had kindly been given a table in the venue and another huge meal before we sloped off to get changed before our performance.
The crowd by this point were raring to get going on the dance floor. DJ Adrian Hughes was there to start the party, he always plays a great set!
We performed to an energetic crowd who were such fun and made us feel like part of their party. So many people came up to us afterwards and said how much fun they’d had. It was lovely to speak to so many of them and they were over the moon with our performance and want us back next year!
Helen, Matthew & Mike even got dragged onto the dance floor after the gig and were last seen jumping up and down to Kate Perry’s ‘Firework’…they don’t get out much!!!
We performed at the beautifully refurbished Langham Hotel in london on the 4th February for Moët Hennessy
It was a beautiful setting for a great crowd.
They were straight on the dance floor to party with MADHEN after their meal and speeches.
Such a great crowd to perform too.
We had a fun night!
Don’t worry this large Jeroboam was not consumed by the band! Just wishful thinking on our part!
We had a lovely email after the event from Kate Vinent at Moët Hennessy
First of all apologies for being so late in writing to you.
We had the most fabulous time!!! Madhen were totally brilliant and were perfect for our event, we could not have had a better band. The music choice was spot on and the dance floor was always full.
Quite apart from the actual playing, the band set up at the hotel, and the event organisation with you, was professional and easy. It was a pleasure to do business with you.
Many thanks for everything.
With best regards
