Joy & Madness
Joy & Madness
A nine piece soul and funk explosion out of Sacramento that could be described as Jamiroqui meets J. Geils, Joy & Madness has been rocking stages all over California since inception, sharing the stage with the likes of Tower of Power, Collective Soul, The Monophonics, the Motet, and the Pimps of Joytime, Dumpstaphunk, Trombone Shorty and more. After 5 of the members met in a previous local project, they added long-time Sacramento funkateer, Miss Nyxi on bass, and the prolific funk guitarist, Bobby G. After a chance meeting with Miss Nyxi while sitting in with Tower of Power’s Roger Smith. Bobby G, who had played with and produced with the likes of Earth, Wind, and Fire, Sheila E, Lionel Richie among others, added his impeccable funk chops, production skills and musical ingenuity to the band. The addition of world percussionist Ryan Sacco cemented the layer of groove that truly takes off in their live shows. Live performances show the band bringing its namesake to every set, leaving crowds sweaty and inspired with a raucous mix of raw stonesy energy, pulsing groove and juicy horn lines coloring tightly crafted songs that bring a modern classic pop sensibility to a new age of joyous funk and soul. Front man and vocalist Hans Eberbach brings so much freewheeling energy to the stage, he has literally broken right through the floorboards and his raw, open connection with the audience means every show is breaking down barriers and pulling everyone together into the excitement of the experience. The band's new EP, Little Bright World was released in November of 2015 at a rousing show in Sacramento's Crest theater with Ozomatli sharing the bill and has begun spinning on terrestrial and internet radio stations around the world. The band's two EPs have won both Indpendent Music Awards and Akademia Music Awards and begun to garner glowing reviews. Joy and Madness will be performing at festivals and clubs along the west coast throughout 2016
