July 2021 the band released their first self-produced album: No Pedals which features their show stopping fan favorite: Preacherman.
Menza Madison Band is fronted by Tracy Madison with shameless, soul shaking vocals
reminiscent of Janis, Bonnie and Etta. Joe and Mike Menza, father and son, team up with
harmonic lead guitar work on vintage gear, bringing back that old school tone created
with their strict “no pedals” policy. The band is fearlessly backed by Rich Sarles and
Tim Chanowitz- the freight train rhythm section. This band is nothing short of show
stopping! Bringing back the passion, heart and soul that pours out of the music of the
60’s and 70’s.
MMB has proudly shared the stage with The Bruce Katz Band, Scott Sharrard and his
band, The Jamie McLean Band, Blues legend Coco Montoya and brought its fearless
heart and grit to the streets of NYC to Syracuse and up and down the Hudson river line!
