We recently had a major shake-up in the band line-up. Due to increasing family obligations, Scott Waddell has departed the Madeira. We wish him all the best in the future, and will miss playing with him. We were fortunate enough to find another talented bass player with a love of the reverbed sounds in the person of Todd Fortier. Todd is from Indianapolis, and has been playing bass for over twenty years. He loves his bass gear, and has played many different styles of music over the years. This is his first surf music band and we are greatly looking forward to reaching new milestones with him in our ranks, including recording our debut CD, slated for July. Todd’s premiere performance with us will be on lucky Friday the 13th (of May) in Hillsdale, Michigan. Stay tuned for more news about both Todd as well as our upcoming recording session. New gigs!
