The Los Palmas 6 - A Madness Tribute Band
Madness were prominent in the late 1970s and early 1980s and are still as relevant as they ever were, influencing many younger bands and still touring and recording themselves. Known for their catchy tunes and playful videos, Madness are also all great musicians, and this has been reflected in the line up of the Los Palmas 6 (aka LP6).
Initially LP6 consisted of 6 members (which is where their name came from - a twist on the Madness single, 'The Return Of The Los Palmas 7') and in 2006 they grew to the fully authentic 7 piece by adding their very own Chas Smash on vocals and trumpet. They play all the classic hits and some superb B-sides.
From the beginning the band has established a large following of fans, ensuring packed gigs wherever they play.
The Los Palmas 6 are available with a large professional PA and Lighting rig. They've worked hard to recreate the authentic sounds of Madness with an amazingly authentic stage show including backdrops, stage clothes etc.
