Hailing from the central coast of
The Mad Caddies' talents reach far beyond the boundaries of ska and punk, enabling them to throw a musical curve ball into the mix without notice. Reggae, dixie, jazz, surf, rockabilly, country and swing are all styles in which the group is well versed and aren't afraid to inject into their unique brand of rock. The members of the Mad Caddies are as diverse as the music they perform but their most notable member is lead vocalist Chuck. Despite his penchant for booze and all things smokable, Chuck's amazing voice prevails and his crooning could make even Morrissey blush.
The band has toured the U.S., Europe, Canada, Australia and Japan countless times, including stints on '97, '98, '00, '03 Warped Tours and both the Euro and American Fat Tours of 2000. Between all this time on the road, the Mad Caddies have managed to release an EP, a live record, and three other full lengths on Fat: Just One More, Duck and Cover and the album that launched the sub-genre of "pirate-core", Rock The Plank. Think about it, the lifestyle of the Mad Caddies consists of travelling around the country, making port in unfamiliar towns, causing trouble, imbibing spirits and random pillaging.
