MADHEN Party On!

The MADHEN party never stops! We’ve had such a busy month, both with gigs all over the UK and abroad. Plus a lot of behind the scenes work too.

We drove to a beautiful part of the UK on the 5th of September.

MADHEN Matthew & Helen Elvedon Forest

Elvedon Forest was the location for a fun night. Thanks to Tom everyone at West End Studios.

Guy Richardson’s 21st birthday party had us jetting back over to Jersey for a beautiful event. We’d already performed at Guy’s sisters party a few years before.

Thanks to everyone involved and especially the Richardson’s for looking after us and making us feel so welcome in your home.

It was East London’s award winning Tramshed¬†that was to host a great party on the 13th

The dressing room could not have been more apt for us MADHEN’s!

We were invited back to perform at the Goodwood Revival Ball which is a favourite night in the MADHEN calendar!

Previous years have seen us dress up in full Rocky Horror attire, Dr Zhivago and this year we were heading to the Wild West

The Goodwood Revival is a major event held every year at Goodwood House. One of Britain’s finest stately homes

Every year Lord March holds a charity ball during the long weekend and it’s always an amazing invite only event

So it was cowboy hats, boots and a huge sprinkling of rhinestones that we found ourselves in thanks to ‘Mama Hen’ Helen

The venue always looks out of this world thanks to an amazing team at Starlight Design

Here’s a little video we took from our FaceBook page

It was an incredible evening as always. We opened our set as with Rhinestone Cowboy, then continued a small medley of songs including Jolene and Cotton Eye Joe. The atmosphere is always electric and everyone flocked straight to the dance floor. We got to stay and enjoy our good friend DJ Lora keep the dance floor on fire for all the guests

Thanks to the incredible Theresa and everyone involved for another memorable night

We jetted off to the beautiful island of Malta on the 18th

The setting was beautiful with the harbour behind the stage

Mark Chant from Madhen Productions was on board too

We got to use our video backdrops too. Always enhances the MADHEN performance

The journey through the French Riviera is breathtaking and after 30 minutes we arrived in beautiful Monaco

After a few electrical issues were sorted by a lovely local electrician, the night went really well. Such great friends and family. We’d like to thank Susanne for really looking after us all night

WEM – BER – LEY!

Yes we played at Wembley Stadium this month too!

Granted that it was a huge suite within the building, but it’s going on the MADHEN CV

Production Bureau had booked us to perform at a pharmaceutical event

The giant video screens looked amazing

We had the best view from our dressing room/suite

Martyn grabbed an opportunity to play his guitar within the stadium. Something to tell the grandkids!

Another great gig with a fantastic team

Thanks to all involved

From Wembley Stadium to Turkey!

It was another flight this month to entertain the Wella Trendsetters from around the world

We arrived in Turkey the night before the gig. We stayed at the Adam & Eve Hotel which was like something out of Blade Runner!

Royal Adam Eve

Mirrors everywhere and vast corridors. It also contains the longest bar in the world!

Adam & Eve Longest Bar in the world

Would you Adam & Eve it?

It was great waking up with a few hours to kill in the Turkish sunshine

A great team at WRG had created a spectacular room with giant video screens and a runway for Wella’s awards dinner

MADHEN’s Andy has taught the likes of Naomi Campbell and Kate Moss the art of runway strutting!

After sound check there’s was a little time to relax and watch the sunset before getting into costume ahead of the gig

Madhen Matthew and Helen Turkey

As always Wella were a great crowd to perform for. Turkey you rocked!

So a fun filled September was had by us hen’s.

October is even busier…Farmers Weekly Ball, CandyAmp showcase, Camden’s KOKO and a helluva lot of travel…so far it’s going great guns!

Love from us all x x x x
