Madra are a rock 'n'roll band from Dublin/Kildare who were formed in late 2006. We are a intense, tight and rockin three-piece. Each member brings their own diverse and unique styles and tastes in music, but it is the guitar driven, drum pounding, bass thumping rock 'n ' roll of the 60's and 70’s that shines through in our material.
While listening to Madra, one can expect to hear anything from Zepplinesque heavy rock to melodic music in the vein of The Beatles to songs with just a hint of good solid punk like the Ramones or a touch of the alternative, a la Bowie.
Madra have spent the past three years gigging as much and as hard as possible, in venues big and small in Dublin and Lucan/ Leixlip from The Sugar Club, to the Mezz bar and The Pint and a host of others. We are fresh from playing the Leixlip Salmon Leap festival on two days and have played for various charity events for groups such as Focus Ireland and The Nagarhope charity.
During March/April we went out to A.P Studios in Sandyford and recorded our new E.P "Humanerisms" which can be found on Itunes and at any of our gigs we are going to have a big E.P launch hopefully next month. The E.P can also be listened to on our our myspace site or www.Madramusic.com. We also have plans for an album in the near future.
Madra believe in Live music and that there are two types of band, the one that stands and plays their songs with little to no recognition of the audience, and the band who go out there and rock out with the audience. You get back from the audience what you put in, and thats what we are all about
So see ya at the next show !!!!!
