Bringing Back the Roaring Twenties with the Mad Caddies
Performing since the mid '90s, the Mad Caddies offer a mix of musical styles that include rock, reggae, punk and jazz-infused melodies. If you have followed the Mad Caddies' nearly 20-year-long career, then expect the smoothness of Chuck Robertson's vocals with surprise background elements that never wears thin. The band members are expected to play an amalgam of party music, including their latest songs to delight their audience.
The Mad Caddie will play a one-week U.S. leg before departing on a month-long European tour. Fans will see the group performing in Lisbon, Portugal followed by a stint in A Coruna and Oviedo, Spain, before ending with a series of tour dates in Toulouse and Paris, France.
Before the Mad Caddies became the Mad Caddies, they were known as "Cracked Macaroni" and "The Ivy League". The Ivy League didn't stick because there were other bands with the name, and they didn't want any legal troubles. While working with the Mad Caddies, Chuck Robertson formed another band, Ellwood, with the original members of Mad Caddies, as a fun side project. So far, Ellwood has released one album, Lost in Transition, with Fat Wreck Chords.
The Mad Caddies took shape in 1995 and they haven't looked back since. Although the band's members have changed several times, founders Chuck Robertson (vocalist), Sascha Lazor (guitarist) and Tod Rosenberg (drummer) have kept the band united. They have since welcomed the latest members, Dustin Lanker (keyboardist), Keith Douglas (trumpeter), Eduardo Hernandez (trombonist) and Graham Palmer (bassist) to expand the group's music range.
The band first became popular by playing numerous high school gigs under various assumed names. The group members got their breakthrough in the 1990s when they caught the attention of the record label Honest Don's Records. The group subsequently signed under the name Mad Caddies. Shortly after signing, the group released its debut album Quality Soft Core, which gathered enough momentum across the country to lead the next major record deal. Since signing with Fat Mike's label, Fat Wreck Chords, the band has released five studio albums, two EP's and a live album.
Since its debut album in the '90s, the group has kept up the pace with a number of music awards. In 2003 they had the top reggae album on the charts, Just Once More, which peaked at No. 7 on the Billboard charts. In 2007, the group gained recognition in the charts for the album Keep It Going, which includes songs produced by Grammy-award winner Wayne Jobson. The musicians did a "hat trick" with the LP Dirty Rice, which received a 4 out of 5 star rating from Alternative Press. There were originally 25 tracks written for Dirty Rice, but only 12 made it through to release.
