Esquires Monthly Tribute Club presents:


Bedford Esquires, Saturday 27th February at 8pm

Bedford Esquires regulars will know of Special Kinda Madness from when the band rolled into the venue back in March 2015 and shook the walls with their classic take on Madness and The Specials.

For those that missed out here is the lowdown. Special Kinda Madness perform a truly authentic set from each band, combining the phenomenally energetic stage presence of The Specials with the wonderful iconic tunes of the Madness ‘Nutty Boys’. Playing a set from each band and producing a show that will have the audience up and dancing from the off, Special Kinda Madness will have everyone hankering after that exciting era of 2-Tone and ska.

On 21st July 1979 at the Electric Ballroom in London, the Specials played a gig with Madness, Dexy’s Midnight Runners and Selecter. That’s a gig that all 2-Tone rude boys and rude girls would die to see, and thought would never happen. The Specials and Madness on the same bill!
In truth, it probably never will happen now … but you can get the next best thing with Special Kinda Madness!
2 Bands … 2-Tone … 1 Fantastic Night!

There is no support on the night as the band play 2 sets with the running order of Specials or Madness to be decided on the night. Doors open 8pm with the first set around 8.30pm.
Esquires Club open after the gig with DJ Pete Burridge playing some classic tunes.

This show sold out in advance last time so early purchase of tickets is advised.

Tickets on sale through priced £10 and can be bought in person from Esquires Bar & Boutique Planet in Bedford and Mario’s hair Design in Kempston and online from Seetickets.
