A CITY band are in Paradise over their latest gig announcement.
Mads Mods & Englishmen will be playing the exclusive after party on the back of Coldplay’s upcoming concert at the Ricoh Arena in Coventry in two weeks time.
Chris Martin and co are currently preparing for their latest UK and European tour and chose the MK group to perform at their post-show party.
But this isn’t the first time the band have been asked to perform in front of huge rock stars.
The Kings of Leon were first to snap up the Milton Keynes band last year for an after-show party and they went down a storm.
Keyboard player Steve Witcomb said: “The Kings of Leon party was incredible, full of VIPs and music industry bods. Since that night the phone hasn’t stopped ringing.”
The band have had a series of high profile gigs this year including supporting Bruce Foxton’s ‘From The Jam’.
Despite their hectic schedule the Mad Mods needed no persuasion to help out a good cause.
On Friday June 8, the band will be headlining a fundraising gig at The Pitz, Woughton Centre in aid of city charity Emily’s Star.
“It’s such a worthy cause we jumped at the opportunity to help out,” said Steve.
The band will be joined by Northampton reggae act The Bighead and award-winning DJ Jobi Wan.
