Badness

Badness has established themselves as a premier tribute band to the sounds of Madness, Bad Manners and Buster Bloodvessel. Badness adore performing, something that can be seen in their shows. The fun they have on stage can be sensed by the audience, leading to the whole venue leaving at the end of the night having enjoyed themselves. The band where formed in July 1994, Badness quickly became one of the top Ska / 2Tone revival bands in the country. Within six months the band where selling out various venues across the U.K. & Eire. With tours of Israel, Germany and Spain under their belts and having played every town & city in the U.K. (well almost!), Badness has built up a cult following and regularly sell out venues across the country. Re-live the "Dance Crazy" days of the late 70s & early 80s with the No.1 Ska revival act in the UK.

One Step Behind

One Step Behind feels that by replicating one of the nation's best-loved institutions, they are keeping alive the spirit that inspired a whole generation, and still enjoys enormous popularity today. One Step Behind perpetuates the popularity of the originals, who now rarely appear in public. One Step Behind were recently featured in an article in the London Evening Standard (8/7/97) stating that they were one of the two top tribute bands currently on the UK circuit. When the real group performed at the G-MEX in Manchester, Suggs actually walked up to the microphone and said "By the way, we're MADNESS not One Step Behind!!", and subsequently in the Melody Maker review that followed the headline was One Step Behind!!
