Masters of Madness


One Step Behind are the UKs premier Madness tribute band.  They were formed in 1993 and quickly gained widespread recognition.


Each member of the band grew up as a Madness fan and for each perfecting his portrayal of his original Madness counterpart has been a labour of love.  They strive to match every detail of the original both musically and in appearance.


One Step Behind are well known for their on stage antics with which they build up an authentic Nutty atmosphere.


A great kick start to Christmas!

Back in January we put a great band on called Wheeler Street a young folk rock band from Maidstone, they have played all the major Folk Festivals this summer going down a storm.  They recently had a full page article in fRroots one of the leading folk and world music magazines in the UK. 


When asked “when was the moment that they felt bigger wheels begin to turn?” by the interviewer Simon Jones they replied.


       “Faversham Hop Festival in August 07, maybe though it could have been the launch of our EP in Smarden.  Everyone in the audience had to make an effort to be there, Smarden’s a tiny award winning village about half an hour east of Maidstone with a beautiful venue called Charter Hall.  That show was the first time we realised that anyone would make an effort to specifically come and see us play, loads of people turned up!”


We were very proud to read that article!


If you haven’t managed to see them yet we recommend you do, they are playing this Friday in Maidstone but unfortunately they sold out within days, go on to their website to see what else they are doing.
