TULALIP Author of two books and the singer of his own original songs on soon-to-be three CDs, as well as a long-ago leader of Tulalip Tribes, Guy Madison has gathered up a bunch of friends and fellow musicians to have a party and now its grown beyond the private realm.
Everyone is invited, said J. Nasty, the promoter and all-around handy man for Madison Records as well as musicians with Sea City Dolls.
Madison is performing rock-n-roll as Fatman Dancing one night only starting 9 p.m. Sunday, Feb. 18 in the Q Room at Quilceda Creek Casino along with Nasty himself, Eddie Z., John and Shan Candelario, Jim Kruzi, Carol Elliott and Brittney Dahstroem.
All these guys are from different walks of life, Nasty said.
Jimmys a rocket man on the drums. John Candilerio teaches at Marysville-Pilchuck High School and offers guitar lessons at Cascade Music. Brittany Dottson is the youngest, a 22-year-old back up singer. Carol Elliott plays keyboard,
Shes played with a lot of bands she knows how to make the guys sound good,
Were just gonna have some fun music and dancing kicking up your heals, Nasty added. The music will be some good ol driving rock and roll with a little punky twist.
Guy Madison is no more. Hes now Fatman Dancing. Guy is dead, Nasty laughed.
We are all in mourning. Fatman swallowed him.
Nasty likes to call it high energy punk pop, a Lawrence Welk backwards.
Were trying to et the vocals back in the machine, he said.
A member of a very artistic brother, Madisons brother Richard Madison is a skilled painter and his nephew, James Madison is also a very productive and talented artist.
His sister, Michelle Madison is the one with the brains, however, and manages the business side of Madison Records LLC. She promotes Komplex Kai and other Tulalip talent as well.
Guy Madison is the author of two prize-winning books, The Res. and Ward 7.
There will be food and hors douvres,
Guy just wanted to do a show for his family, Nasty said. He doesnt claim to be a song writer but he keeps writing songs.
