We have some good news and some not so good. First of all, the good news: the Madeira will be playing in Indy again this SATURDAY, MARCH 10th at MO'S LOADING DOCK. And it will be a special show due to two factors, one of them being the unveiling of SIX new songs (two of which are covers) destined for our second full-length album. (That's in addition to "Surf Fidelis" and "The Saracen," two post-Sandstorm original songs we have been performing for some time now, and which you will again hear this Saturday if you're there.)
The not so good news, and the second factor making this show a bit special, is that this will be our last local Indy appearance for some time. The reason being that our rhythm guitarist Patrick and his wife Kathie will be moving to San Diego, CA the day after this show. They have been hoping to move to California for a while, and the time was finally right. We are truly happy for them, as it's an amazingly beautiful place. But we are also a bit sad for us, as Patrick has been an integral part of the Madeira family for three years now, and what a three years it's been! HOWEVER! All is not lost, as Patrick will continue to provide his signature lightning-fast strum and that big wet reverb chunk for our band. He will fly back to Indy every so often so we can continue - cause it just wouldn't be the same without our Patrick! We will still play the scheduled Lafayette, IN show in April, and we have a couple of summer engagements that are currently in the planning. And we still hope to record the follow-up to Sandstorm at some point this year, hopefully in the Fall. Still, his physical distance will necessitate some adjustments and we will be forced to cut back on our live engagements. All the more reason to make sure that you come see us this Saturday!
Have a great Spring (may it get here SOON), and we hope to see many of you this Saturday!
