An eight piece soul and funk explosion out of Sacramento that could be described as Jamiroqui meets J. Geils, Joy & Madness has been rocking stages all over the West Coast since inception. They have shared the stage with the likes of Tower of Power, Collective Soul, The Monophonics, the Motet, and the Pimps of Joytime, Dumpstaphunk, and Trombone Shorty and bring a live performance which leaves everybody inspired, sweaty, and full of joy.
Joy & Madness began with 5 core members who met in a previous project. They added long-time Sacramento funkateer, Miss Nyxi on bass, and the prolific funk guitarist, Bobby G. Bobby G, who had played with and produced the likes of Earth, Wind, and Fire, Sheila E, Lionel Richie among others, had a chance encounter with Miss Nyxi after sitting in with Tower of Power’s Roger Smith. After Miss Nyxi introduced him to Joy & Madness, he added his impeccable funk chops, production skills and musical ingenuity to the band. With a raucous mix of raw stonesy energy, pulsing groove, and juicy horn lines coloring tightly crafted songs, Joy & Madness brings a modern classic pop sensibility to a new age of joyous funk and soul.
