Looks like Maggie Mae's is thrown' it down... i mean down... like downtown... oh lord... why do I say stuff like that?!? Anyways... D-Madness wrote in to tell us about a couple dope shows... Friday, April 13th we've got Afrofreque... who's Station?!?
Then Saturday, April 14th DJ Diamond Tip, D-Madness, and Mike and Ike tear it up.
I'm definitely up for some good shows this weekend... it's been one hell of a week. You wouldn't believe... one day I might tell you... but I can't now... hopefully it all works out...
D-Madness aka Dwayne Jackson is the baddest musician in this world. In the studio, he basically plays everything but horns. He was playing in orchestras, overseas, by his teens. He's played in studios, bars and clubs since his teenage years. If you need ANYTHING between cello parts and vocal percussion, D-Madness can help you. He is the ultimate session musician. On stage, the normal D-Madness setup is bass guitar or electric guitar, drums, his ASR-10 production keyboard and a vocal mic. He might also play a cheek solo, a nearby beer bottle, or double-time his bass drum with the sticks (even ex-Living Colour drummer, Will Calhoun, was baffled). When Japan's DJ Krush first saw him perform, he asked D to play bass guitar and violin on his next record. When Erykah Badu saw him soundcheckin' at her Black Forest Theater (near his native Oak Cliff, Texas), she pushed him later in the schedule so Prince could see him.
