Emilia Pirri-Depares - Lead Vocals
Emilia Pirri-Depares (Daisy Tenderloin to her friends) has been entertaining patrons overseas and in Australia for the last couple of decades. Hailing from Adelaide where she worked with many bands and hitting her stride when she moved to Sydney.
Emilia worked with these crazy Mad Cow's for more than 8 years and has also worked with many bands around Sydney, including Wild Cherry and guest appearances with Groovology, Jessica & The Sugar Daddys and Partners In Rhyme ... but for her there's no better pastures than working with Mad Cow again.
Emilia is always ready to rock and loves to deliver an energetic performance with her broad vocal ability and repertoire. Emilia's aim is to create a memorable night, delivering great music, filling up the dance floor and captivating her audience with her stage presence. She loves to feed off the crowd's participation, encouraging her audience to give their all. Creating an amazing atmosphere and magical moments for all to share (and her band members too).
Her motto: There's no udder band like Mad Cow ... moooooo
Perry Eves - Guitar/Vocals
Perry Eves, alias Pezzy-E and known throughout the herd as Eddie Van Hamburger was born on a sly summers day destined for greatness!

Among the many bands there have been original bands such as Rock band Napoleon Blowen Apart and Progressive Rock band Emanon. Cover bands, Great Southern Land, The Oz Rock Revival Show and of course Mad Cow 1 and now his mighty return to the herd.
A man of many talents, Guitar, Counsellor, Voice Over Artist and best of all ... Bull Sh#t Artist ...
But, his Mum loves him!!

Paul Eve - Bass
Paul "Sir Loin" Eve began playing Bass at the tender age of 12 and soon scored a job working with Marty & Emu from the Super Flying Fun Show.
As he got older he knew he wanted to start playing in bands as soon as he could.
After being Knighted (he's not quite sure what for) he went on to play in many bands including originals band Stoker with Steve Mulry (Ted's brother) Shooga Katz and Wicked. Paul is an accomplished musician who's worked in the pub and club scene and also corporate events for many years.
Also studied musicianship at the Australian Music Education Board (AMEB), reaching Grade 4, he also teaches Bass. After many years of gigging he decided to take a break for a while but now he's back making a triumphant return with Mad Cow.
Paul's MO: "Laying down thick and juicy bass lines" ... he sure is a cut above the rest.
Greg Morris - Drums/Vocals/Samples
Greg "The Bear" Morris (known as Barry Bovine to the rest of the herd) has been bashing away behind the drums for more than 40 years now and he's not slowing down any time soon!

He is a founding member of the original Mad Cow which earned four ACE Award nominations and gained much respect in the music industry.
Greg's goal is to continue that great success with this new line-up of Mad Cow!
