Hard to Describe, Easy to Love
The Mad Maggies is a high-energy, danceable, touring band based in Sonoma County, California and Montréal, Québec. Their seriously “genre-fluid” style spans ska, folk rock, California roots, jazz, R&B, klezmer, sea-faring & much more. It’s mostly original, often surprising, always fun.
The Mad Maggies are:
Johny Blood: tuba, bullhorn
Ray Fernandez: saxophones
Ian Luke: drums, percussion
Maggie “Mags” Martin: accordionist, vocals, composer, fearless leader
Mark Nemoyten: trumpet
Tim Sarter: bass
Ned Stone: trombone
Gary “GDub” Wium: guitars
“From the moment they hit the stage, the “dance floor” was swarmed with people
dancing and jumping, enjoying the music that can only be described as a cross between the best greasy cheeseburger ever and a highly refined French dining experience. We look forward to having the band back again!” — Kimberly Paternoster, Pt. Richmond Music Festival director
