Bio

All of us have been playing most of our lives. Madstone started out as Hester Prynne about 10 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. Heavy Thunder was born.  Mark has collaborated on 4 of these new tunes and added his own flare and originality to the rest.  We moved to TExas in October 2017 and Andy Ramos and James York joined. 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.
