Madman's Window FRIDAY EVENING
For those of you who are familiar with Madman’s Window it will come as no surprise that the band was formed in a pub. The band was started over pints by brothers Paul and Chris Devlin. Their goal was to create the ultimate pub band, specializing in Irish and East Coast Folk music with a touch of Roots Rock attitude. Madman's Window consists of: Chris Devlin on Vocals, Bodhran, Mandolin and Guitar; Paul Devlin on Bass, Guitar and Vocals; Kyler Tapscott on Guitar, Harmonica, and Vocals; Tyson Galloway on Banjo, Guitar and vocals; and Laurence Stevenson on Fiddle and vocals.
Highlights of the band's career include: opening for Irish Punk Rock Legends The Mahones on their 2013 St. Patrick's Day Tour; performing at the Artists For Northumberland United Way Concert; performing at Cobourg's Canada Day celebrations and playing at the Cobourg Highland Games Society's Ceilidh. Madman's Window's first single, A Ship Called Liberty, has enjoyed a great deal of success. The video for their second single, Soggy Bones, is the most watched video in the British Virgin Islands. The band is currently working on their first full length album. Madman's Window plays a unique style of Irish Drinking Songs and Pirate Music guaranteed to get your toes tapping and the grog flowing.
