Reinventing the Swinging ’60s: Mads Tolling & The Mads Men to Electrify the Ashwaubenon PAC


April 18th performance will take concertgoers on a journey through the unmistakable music of the “Mad Men” era

Prepare for some musical time travel back to the swinging ’60s at the performance of electrifying violinist Mads Tolling and his dynamic ensemble, The Mads Men. Set for April 18 at the Ashwaubenon Performing Arts Center (APAC) at 7:30 p.m., the concert promises to be an unforgettable evening full of music that is both nostalgic and contemporary.

Mads Tolling & The Mads Men captivate audiences by reimagining classic hits from the 1960s. Featuring tracks from their critically acclaimed album, Playing the 60s, the ensemble breathes new life into beloved songs like “A Taste of Honey,” “My Girl,” “Georgia on My Mind,” “Good Vibrations,” and a catchy mashup of “Meet the Flintstones” with “I Got Rhythm.”

With two Grammy Awards to his name, Danish-born Mads Tolling is a violin virtuoso who was introduced to jazz at the age of fourteen. Six years later, he moved to the U.S. to hone his craft at the prestigious Berklee College of Music. Now, he dazzles audiences worldwide, with collaborations that include touring with jazz legend Stanley Clark and performing with the Turtle Island String Quartet. Tolling has also been featured on NPR’s Morning Edition and has received rave reviews from The Washington Post and San Francisco Chronicle.

The remainder of the quartet are world-class musicians in their own right. The Mads Men are composed of Colin Hogan on piano, Gary Brown on bass, and Eric Garland on drums. Together with Tolling, they form a troupe that transcends expectations while entertaining audience members of all ages.

Mads Tolling & The Mads Men is sponsored by Green Bay Packaging | George Kress Foundation and presented as part of the Ashwaubenon P.A.C.’s Touring Series.
