Mad Caddies Bring Ska-Punk to Tempe, Talk Dirty Rice, Fat Mike and More

When the Mad Caddies take the stage on Sunday, April 13, at Club Red in Tempe, it will be the first time the ska-punk-reggae musicians have played for their Arizona fans in seven years. What can an audience expect after all this time? Well, the Mad Caddies performance they have grown to love will be in full effect, but they will also find that their beloved band is touring with a rejuvenated drive and purpose behind their music after the lengthy hiatus.

"I think that helped us get stronger and better than we ever have been," says singer Chuck Robertson on the Mad Caddies' time away from the spotlight. "And we're stoked to put out a new record."
