The Bennies Bio:
The Bennies (formerly Madonna) are a four piece band who have been together for just over 2 years. While they are inspired by the likes of The Clash, Sublime and Rancid, The Bennies consider themselves a party band. Elements of hip-hop, physcedallic, metal and pop also influence the band into their own fun loving style. Although the punk/ska genre may sometimes be considered dated, The Bennies breathe life into the style by performing with extreme energy, enthusiasm and an unbashful love to party. Their line-up is guitar, bass, drums, microkorg and the singer utilizes delay vocal effects as well. With bouncy bass lines, fast high-hats and filthy synth noises an undeniable homage to the club scene is present. The lyrical content is drug praising, night-life loving and good times rolling.”
In their short career so far the band have completed an international tour of Japan, Singapore and Malaysia, supported international acts such as The Aggrolites, Streetlight Manifesto, Leftover Crack, Star Fucking Hipsters, AC4 and Doing Life, released a self titled album ('Madonna' 2010) and played more than 150 gigs in and around Victoria and New South Wales.
With the release of their second album 'PARTY! PARTY! PARTY!' in May 2011, expect to see a lot more of The Bennies and their high-energy certified tunes.
