Mad Mods & Englishmen
Live at Bedford Esquires, 8pm Saturday 13th August
A summer highlight and a long overdue return for Mad Mods & Englishmen as they return to Bedford following an absence over 3 years. Previously the band have played some legendary gigs at The Pad as well as opening for Bruce Foxton’s From the Jam at a sell-out show at the Corn Exchange. Last time the band visited Esquires they packed out Danny’s Bar at the venue and this time they are upgraded to the main stage.
Anyone that has seen the ‘Mad Mods’ live will tell you that they are no traditional covers band. Their energetic performances have built them a massive following and they have a reputation of packing every venue they play at, and then bringing the house down!
Their repertoire includes hits from The Who, Small Faces, The Kinks, Rolling Stones, Spencer Davis, Yardbirds, The Jam and many more, and yes, they’ve even been known to smash the odd guitar up on stage!
The band will be playing 2 sets with no support on the night, doors open at 8pm with the band hitting the stage around 8.30pm.
“These guys are as good a feel-good band as you’ll experience. Just make sure you do experience them”
Chris Hawkins – BBC 6 Music
