    Mad Dog are brilliant! I have engineered for them on a number of occasions and it's always been a blast! Much more fun being in the crowd though. Their gigs are always packed and very lively! I Would definitely recommend them to anyone to go and see live. They play at a club called the Hippo regularly- check it out! Bringing in NYE in with the “The Bear Necessities”. never gets boring.
