Madstone started out as Hester Prynne about 8 years ago. Steve passed away sadly and left us his music. We felt we needed to keep his legacy alive. Great music is great music. The first 2 CDs include 2 to 4 of his tunes on each. James Stone then formed Madstone with Thommy Souza, Shannon Shrogin, and Al Young. James added his music and we completed an impressive first 2 CDs. Shannon could not continue with us so we went on the hunt for a new guitar. That's when Thommy called his old band mate Mark Doolin. We are close to completing CD number 3. This time, Mark has collaborated on 4 of these new tunes and added his own flare and originality to the rest. The result is stronger than ever, more rock, more punch. You are always in for a great show, great fun, dance the night away experience. We hope to see you at a gig soon.
