We are delighted to present a brand new band put together by the talented Matt Gedrych who’s compositions have had us bop our head since they landed on our ear drums. Scroll down for that sweet soundcloud link and press play, you won't be disappointed!
Producer and beat smith Ben Hayes will be doing a set before the 9 piece band take the stage.

MaddAddam is a collective of London-based jazz musicians playing original compositions drawn from the diverse sounds and emotions the city inspires. Influenced by the ensembles and mighty compositions of the likes of Kenny Wheeler and Brian Blade, this group plays music that focuses on strong melodies, driving rhythms and improvisation.

Ben Hayes
Based in south east London, Ben Hayes creates music that has been described as dizzying, intelligent and profound. Lacing carefully programmed synthesisers and the warmth of live instrumental performance with deftly manipulated found sound, Ben Hayes punctuates evolving organic textures with evocatively lopsided beats, whilst bringing to the foreground the minute beauty hidden in sounds that would otherwise pass us by.
