""This is what live music should be... Awesomely entertaining""

When I first saw the Memphis Maniacs on the "acoustic" stage at Hollands Paaspop festival, my first thought was that they were playing way too fucking loud, then I thought that they were hysterically funny, then I realised they were playing the best live mashups of any band I've seen in my life. This is what live music should be... Awesomely entertaining - Joe Sumner (FICTION PLANE)


"(Paaspop 2010) "Denk in het straatje van AC/DC, Britney Spears, DJ Paul Elstak, Madonna en Daft Punk. Dat is een grote straat en Memphis Maniacs is er de baas.""

"Mocht je na Aux Raus in de feeststemming willen blijven, dan leek het ons nuttig om te gaan kijken bij Memphis Maniacs. Deze band is voor een vaste Paaspopganger geen onbekende naam. De vijf mannen uit Memphis, Nederland brengen een vol uur muziek gevuld met veel, heel veel, smash ups van bekende nummers. Denk in het straatje van AC/DC, Britney Spears, DJ Paul Elstak, Madonna en Daft Punk. Dat is een grote straat en Memphis Maniacs is er de baas."

"(PARADISO/interview) "The Memphis Maniacs are an indie band with a unique concept – mash-ups performed by live musicians. And the crowds love them.""

"I first saw the Memphis Maniacs at the Paradiso in Amsterdam. It was a high-energy stage performance from five guys in stylized costumes putting on the kind of show you would normally expect from a DJ. The next time I saw them was at a beach party during a raging sandstorm. “This is like the Hamptons!” a friend shouted in my ear, “only crazier!” The Memphis Maniacs are an indie band with a unique concept – mash-ups performed by live musicians. And the crowds love them. Their unique stage presence, intense light show, and fresh take on well-chosen hits guarantees the kind of slam-packed dance floor from which you’ll need to come up for air. The Maniacs may be one of the best live bands in the Netherlands today [...]"

Bio

Witnessing a concert of the Memphis Maniacs feels like being hit by a truck that has all your favorite alternative music on board.

Five musicians take the audience on a rollercoaster ride by ingeniously cutting, copying, and pasting unexpected combinations of killer tracks from very different musical genres into highly explosive (s)mash-ups.

Chemical Brothers vs the Kinks vs S-Express, Bon Jovi vs Daft Punk vs Queens of the Stone Age. Prince vs Iron Maiden vs Adamski. And much, much more.

Often compared with 2manydjs but with the overwhelming performance of an insane live band that does so much more than mixing lyrics and music.

No tapes, no backing tracks, no sequencers.
Drums. Bass. Vocals. Keyboards. Guitar. Everything played live.
Expect a massive dance party with rock&roll attitude that makes you gasp for breath.

The Memphis Maniacs are a household name in the Dutch festival scene and have performed at major festivals such as Paaspop, Dauwpop, Lowlands (Magneetbar) & Zwarte Cross.

Strange things happen when a crowd gets their collective music memory served as a whole new package...
