"Sangomas - After Party Acid People - Madcooks - Diemonds au festival anachronik , au cabaret underworld le 3 mai 2014"

Après une courte pause bière, la formation montréalaise MADCOOKS monte sur scène. Un important ajout d’instruments vient changer la vibe de la salle. La formation nous joue leur set list à saveur rock des années 90 alternatif, tantôt penchant vers le blues et parfois vers le grunge.

Les solos rock prennent une place importante du spectacle . Ils sont interprétés par des musiciens solides sur tous les instruments présents . La chimie du groupe est palpable tout au long du spectacle , les gars des MADCOOKS ont su nous faire bouger au rythme de leur musique endiablée.

La foule est définitivement satisfaite de la musique grâce à une bonne énergie de la part des musiciens .De plus en plus de gens se rassemblement devant la scène pour profiter du spectacle - Muzic Injection

"The cheap thrills - Madjune - Madcooks au café chaos 29 novembre 2013"

Eric and I arrived early and had a chance to catch Madcooks do their sound check. Having originally planned to only review Mad June this night, the Madcooks’ soundcheck immediately intrigued me. This band is fairly new, only having been together since February 2013, Madcooks-6which absolutely astounds me considering the talent and chemistry that came out of them on stage.

I introduced myself to Ben Dennis, guitarist/back up vocalist of the band. He then kindly handed me their set list and mentioned he was the organizer of the evening. I went to sit in my usual spot at Chaos at the back side table and observed as the crowd built up. The placed filled up really fast, sadly most people chilling at the bar and not so close to the stage.

Finally, Madcooks started the night around 10:30 pm and began their set with “Dirty Game,” a pop/rock song that definitely got people’s attention. Ben tried getting people to clap along – sadly the crowd did not reciprocate his eagerness but I was really digging what I was hearing. The band has the look and slight sound of Stillwater, the band from Cameron Crowe’s film “Almost Famous.”

Madcooks-8“Unpredictable” was my chosen song of the set. I loved the old school 70s rock ‘n’ roll elements of this track as it had a somewhat slow beat with some heavy guitar solos.

Ben and Mick were very interactive with the crowd and they seemed to have a lot of fun up on stage. They jumped, danced around, and played some pretty wild guitar solos. For a band that hasn’t been together that long, you would never guess it. I was swaying my head around to Mick’s solos and I was particularly fond of the Gab Prieur’s drumming and backup vocals. Louis St-Onge was uber chilled out on the right side of the stage while he played bass; he was the most one mellow of the bunch.

Having never heard these guys before, I was at a loss for words during the performance. I think they have a lot of potential and look forward to what will come next from Madcooks. - Bucketlist


Still working on that hot first release.


Feeling a bit camera shy

forger une identité propre.

parti du groupe ''The cheap thrills'' en novembre 2013 au café

le groupe fit la connaissance de Joe Dimauro qui gère maintenant le

confiance pour ouvrir le groupe DIEMONDS au underworld dans le cadre
