Mad Hallelujah & Matthew Human
Saturday, August 3, 2019
Mad Hallelujah is a band of funky mystics who have been touring the globe for over four years, sharing their all-original music at numerous festivals & venues across three continents.
Innovatively weaving together elements of folk, rock, psychedelic jam, funk, bluegrass, and tribal music into their own unique sound, Mad Hallelujah features big three-part harmonies, infectious hooks and grooves, soaring instrumental jams, and seamless genre transitions. Always engaging, they offer audiences a hearty invitation to sing along and dance like mad.
The group was originally formed as a collective of busking troubadours in New Zealand in 2015 as “Mad Hallelujah Tribe.” They have gone on to record four albums, headline festival stages, and embark on multiple tours in Australia, New Zealand, Europe and the US, earning a dedicated following along the way and a reputation as ecstatic dance-floor igniters, crafters of deep musical journeys, and crowd favorites at festivals, music clubs, and intimate venues alike.
Mad Hallelujah is currently recording their most in-depth album to date and planning an extended U.S. tour in summer and fall 2019. Stay tuned — lots of announcements and new media are brewing!
Matthew Human makes music for the simple life and what’s really important: clean food and water, food shelter, love and community. His music could be listed somewhere between The Eagles, Kenny Chesney, and the Grateful Dead. A beloved veteran of the West Coast underground music scene, Human has over fifteen years of live performances and nine studio albums under his belt. He is fresh off a tour in Costa Rica, where he also practices permaculture and leads workshops.
