our friends, the Medallions!!
It all started when...
...the biggest band of the 1970s got trapped in an elevator and transported, through time, to the year 2015. To raise money for their time machine home, the band decided to play covers from their home decade, the 70s, as well as the 1980s and 1990s, for a variety of private and public functions.
Getting married? Turning 30? 40? 50? 60? 70?? 100??? The Medallions are for you. Scope their repertoire below. Watch their "vH1 Behind the Music". Email their manager for details. Get pumped. Pop open a bottle. Eat some fondue.
With proper arrangements, The Medallions & Madaila can appear at the same engagement! Song requests from the hosts can be honored! Different degrees of "jamming" can be achieved! The Medallions are here for you. They are from the 70s.
"We, Madaila, categorically deny...
...that Madaila is connected to the Medallions. We do admit that the five members of the Medallions look a whole, whole lot like our five members — like a lot, lot. The resemblance is so striking that we can't blame our friends and fans for assuming that [the Medallions are an alter-ego band we, like, created to have an awesome time playing party music from all eras at events that call for epic, universally loved covers - before building an elaborate and incredibly nerdy backstory over the course of a couple years after deciding to do this in 2015]. We can't blame you but we CAN categorically deny. We love you!
Listen to a full set!
(From a night disproportionately featuring:
(At a 21+ establishment!)
(the medallions will not swear at your wedding!)
(Unless you want them to!)
(Or tell stories about their time machine!)
these are the things that happen...
...when you inject the medallions into your big day.
