MADNESS by ONE STEP BEHIND, THE MASTERS OF MADNESS
Each member of One Step Behind grew up as a Madness fan. Perfecting their individual portrayals of each original Madness counterpart, has been a labour of love, as they strived to match every detail of each of the original music legends, both musically and in appearance, creating that authentic 'Nutty' atmosphere.
Members of Madness have joined the One Step boys on stage on a number of occasions. Sax player Lee Thompson has played a few times commenting the band were “Tight as a ducks arse” and “Brilliant”. Lee is also quoted as saying that OSB were “single handily keeping the good ship Madness afloat”. Drummer Dan “Woody” Woodgate joined the band on stage for One Step Beyond and told the boys he thought they were amazing. "That's exactly what we used to be like - you've got it to a tee!" he said. Fine praise indeed!
You'd be hard pushed to think of many bands who have had as many hits as the nutty boys, so get out your fezzes and be ready to start to move your feet, to the rockingest, rock-steady beat of One Step Behind, 'The Masters of Madness'.
