Mad Hadder Band. One of Central Fl hardest working rock cover bands! We play current and some classic rock songs. By design, we choose the songs that are covered less often, if at all, eclectic, cool, rocking and very tasty. " Love your song selection" is a comment we hear at almost every show.
Mad Hadder Band is a true four piece band, in which, all members play an instrument. Keeping us in line and on time is the hard driving beat by drummer Mike Oakley. Mike is responsible for Drums and percussion. You'll find him in the back, in the pocket, wood chips flying! Next we have Eric "Thumper" Brown. Eric handles vocals and bass and takes care of the stage effects - lighting, fog, etc. He's got mean Low Notes! Next up is Michael Rettig. Michael takes care of vocals and smoking lead guitar riffs as well as our sound. Finally, we have Cate Rettig, aka "Pipes". She is our lead vocals and 2nd guitar, and works as hard as many guy in the band.
Together we make up Mad Hadder Band. We have a great time, and enjoy each other's company on and off stage. We have a circle of loyal and devoted friends, fan and Framily that we wouldn't trade for anything. So, when one of us is down or under the weather, we always rally, support one another, and with the help of friends and framily, carry on!
All of us have been playing for years; we are all seasoned and experienced musicians. Our live shows are full of energy, fun, and just enough seriousness to put on a kick ass show!
Come out and join us. We're here for the party! We're here to let the good times roll......Life is short. Make it count!
