BLAZING SURF, EXOTICA, & WILD INSTRO’S FROM NASHVILLE’S FINEST! Featuring Eddie Angel (Los Straitjackets), Bob Irwin (Sundazed Records), Jimmy Lester (Los Straitjackets) & Dave Roe (Johnny Cash, Dwight Yoakum, Dan Auerbach (Black Keys))!!!
The Madeira began in 2004 in Indianapolis, IN. The band features Ivan Pongracic on lead guitar, the founder of the 1990s surf music icons the Space Cossacks; Patrick O’Connor on rhythm guitar, the founder of the Indy space-surf mavens Destination: Earth!; Dane Carter on drums; and Todd Fortier on bass.
Often coined as Garage-a-billy, The Dyes dipped into a phonic realm fueled by infectious ’50s and ’60s oldies approached with an irreverence and vigor that is anything but retro. Frontwoman Lisa Louise slings an Electromatic while crooning & growling her way through rockabilly classics and heartfelt originals. Bassist Jill E. Bean plucks a sparkle Danelectro, complementing each twang of guitar with a soulful thump and fluid sway.
