John Maddox with Nadyas 101 candle orchestra

John Maddox John Maddox

John Maddox, the bass/kazoo player of a hundred bands.  He's played a dozen times at Colbourne Ave, he must have spent hundreds of hours busking on King St, and he's played all over Sydney, Australia and the world with Mr Bamboo, Bellyache Ben, Charlie and the Maddox Factory, Djangoholix, Glitch Jukebox, and so many more.  But until now he has never recorded under his own name.  Come and hear the genius, the inspiration, the amazing, the brilliant, the eccentric, the maestro [i found those words by searching the web for john maddox bass] John Maddox.

... and ...

joining him will be one of his most long-term bands, Nadya's 101 Candles Orchestra.  Nadya Golski has led this unique gypsy/jazz/pacific/klezmer band to success throughout Australia and Europe.  Regularly filling the fabulous room at Qirkz, this will be their first appearance at Colbourne Ave.
