Madam's Animal is a New York-based rock band consisting of Benjamin Raffalli, Sean Hanley, Jacob Rose, and Max Finkelstein. Their sound draws inspiration from the hard rock of the 1980's and 90's, bringing that spirit back to the current rock scene.
Back in 2009, best friends Benjamin Raffalli and Jacob Rose decided to start a band called Jen The Girlfriend, in which they were the only members. Benjamin sang and wrote the lyrics and Jacob played the ukulele. It soon became apparent that other members would be needed to make such a band work, and so they started looking for other talented musicians with similar musical ideals. In 2010, they found an incredibly talented guitarist named Sean Hanley, who fit into the picture perfectly. The search for a drummer and a bassist proved to be more difficult. After searching so long for a bassist, Jacob decided to drop the whole ukulele thing and start playing bass himself, as both instruments were 4 strings. The trio began to write songs together while waiting for the right drummer to show up, sticks in hand. The band, still Jen The Girlfriend, was at a standstill for 3 years until finally, in 2013, the band found Max Finkelstein, who clicked instantly with the rest of the group. And so, after several years of hard work, dreaming, and searching, the band was finally complete. With new members, new sounds, and new songs, came a change to the groups dynamic. They renamed themselves Madam's Animal and officially began their journey to change Rock N' Roll forever.
