The Marvelous Manhattan Mandolins is a brand new super group of New York City mandolin musicians coming together for an eclectic, super fun night of crowd pleasing hits, solely on mandolins. This “Band O Mandos” is comprised of 4 standard mandolins, a mandocello and a mandola.  The members of the group have collective credits including Bob Dylan, Joan Osborne, Toshi Reagon, Five for Fighting, Lucinda Williams, PM Dawn, the Ambitious Lovers, New York Philharmonic, Boston Symphony, Chicago Symphony, Cleveland Orchestra, San Francisco Symphony, Seattle Symphony, New World Symphony, The American Symphony Orchestra, the New York City Ballet and numerous Broadway shows and have performed on stages from CBGBs and the Bitter End to Carnegie Hall, Lincoln Center, The Beacon Theatre, Town Hall, and The Newport Folk Festival.  Many of the members have also composed music for film and television as well.

They have come together in their mutual love of stellar popular music and mutual respect for one another.  Their presentation is warm and engaging and the concerts are fun-filled with virtuosic playing, great vocals and a set list that includes covers from Joni Mitchell to Jimi Hendrix, Elvis Costello and Radiohead… all on mandolin!
