"..a style that is wholly his own...everything you could ask for in a guitarist...belts out the blues with the best of them, but has a more refined, skilled voice that would be equally at home singing jazz standards." -- AllAboutJazz.com
" A monster blues/jazz guitarist " -- Paul DeBarros, Seattle Times music critic, ethnomusicologist, author.

Eric Madis & Blue Madness
Eric Madis' Blue Madness performs a wide spectrum of blues styles, from Delta blues to Chicago blues to T. Bone Walker jazzy Texas blues to Count Basie swing/jump blues to Allman Brothers'-like rocking arrangments to the jazz-influences that have distinguished Eric Madis' style since his Chicago days in the 1970s. Blue Madness is known for tight group arrangements, a dynamic rhythm section, stellar guitar & slide guitar work and singing based on big band blues singers like Joe Williams, Eddie "Cleanhead Vinson", Jimmy Rushing and Ray Charles. Eric Madis has shared the stage with Robben Ford, Sunnyland Slim, Big Walter Horton, James Cotton, Little Charlie & the Nightcats, Deacon Jones and many more. He has released five solo CDs, contributed music to four film soundtracks, and has received acclaim from Guitar World, Washington Blues Society, NAMA, Kerrville Folk Festival and Northwest Folklife. Eric is an internationally-known guitar instructor, having taught for National Guitar Workshop, University of Washington Experimental College, Canada's Guitar Workshop Plus and Jamplay.com.
