About
Do you want to party? No really - are you just saying that or do you really want to PARTY! Good - because The Mandrakes are the ultimate dance party band for NEARLY all occasions. Great at weddings, not so great at a wine tasting. Awesome at 80's parties, not so great doing Doo Wop or Golden Oldies. Perfect for a raging FRAT, BACHELORETTE, BACHELOR, BIRTHDAY, DIVORCE, CASINO NIGHT, LIVE KARAOKE, ADULT or HOLIDAY party - not so great as your background dinner easy listening relaxation digestive therapy band. Hey - if you can dance to it - we play it. We are 3 professional musicians that have been in original touring bands since as far back as we can remember. The Mandrakes is what we do for fun when we are not cranking out the original jams. But just because we manage to have fun everywhere we play doesn't mean we are not professional and know how to play to the room or the event. We can dress up in suits for your wedding - or dress in 80's skinny ties and new wave doo's and crank out the Billy Idol and Cure for your 80's Safety Dance party. We've been rocking southern California (and beyond) with our unique musical jukebox medley approach since 2001. Constant music with little to no down time between songs - mixing current radio hits with Alternative rock, Hip Hop, 80's New Wave, 70's Disco and the occasional Classic Rock tune is our formula -- and, we may toss out a Beatles tune every now and then because that is our favorite band!

Keeping the party going, people dancing and having a good time is our main goal. We have our own top of the line QSC PA system that can bring the bass for the big rooms - or strip it down and use just the top speakers on stands and play quietly for the places where volume is a concern. We use custom in ear monitoring systems and have a state of the art digital mixing board that makes set up time about a half an hour from the time we arrive until the time we are ready to play. We also provide optional DJ mix music between sets and have a pretty cool light show with fog (that we play with most of the time) - venue permitting. The Mandrakes have played for crowds as large as 5000+ people at outdoor events, corporate Christmas parties, too many weddings to mention, street parties, lots of casinos and of course nearly every bar in Southern California and beyond. And yes, Dave even got to play at The Cavern Club in Liverpool with his original band - and sell it out!

We are currently the house band at Brennan's Irish Pub in Marina Del Rey where can be seen every Thursday night - FOR FREE - playing from 9:30 pm - 1:30 - where they have the world famous Turtle Races.

BUDGET an issue? Of course it is - No problem - just let us know and we'll work with you to give you a GREAT live band experience that is memorable for your guests at an affordable rate.

So I'll ask you once again - do you want to book some stuffed shirts playing from beyond the dead - or do you want to book The MANDRAKES and have an awesome memorable time? ;-)

If you are looking to hire a fun band for a party, I highly suggest The Mandrakes. I recently hired them for my husband’s 40th birthday party and they were a hit. Everyone kept asking me where I found the band, they loved them! The guys are extremely professional and experienced – they have been playing together for a long time! They know how to get the party started, get people dancing and keep them out there. I had a special request and they made sure they were prepared for that too. We liked them so much that we opted to hire them for an extra hour, no one wanted the music to end. You will not be disappointed if you hire The Mandrakes for your party!

The Mandrakes played for my sons college graduation party and they were a big hit. Great song list and they went from one good song the the next. There was a variety of age groups and EVERYONE enjoyed the music. They read the crowd well and knew how to switch things up and get people dancing. They made the party fantastic and all my friends are still talking about what a great time they had. The guys were super nice and very professional. Everyone wants me to have another party just so they will come back and play again. They were super accommodating with monitoring the sound level too, especially as it got later in the evening. I would highly recommend them!

The Mandrakes are the best band I've ever heard at a private party, my friends wouldn't stop saying how awesome they sounded. They were early to set up and started playing right on time. They have an amazing play list with just about every kind of music you can think of. They were a lot of fun too, they dressed the part and even enjoyed the party for a bit after their session. I hope they have a spot open for us next year because I never want another band now that I've had them. I HIGHLY recommend them for any venue, they are true pros and FYI, they sound even better live than in the videos. Thanks guys if you are reading this :)

The Mandrakes were awesome! We had a going away party for daughter who was heading off to college. There were about 200 people of ages ranging from 16-55. Everyone loved the band and was dancing. The band made the party. Would recommend them to anyone and hire them again.

We had a wonderful experience booking the Mandrakes. They were very friendly on the phone during the booking process as well as on site. We were able to pick all of our songs off a setlist that was perfect for both my wife and my taste's. They were even willing to learn two new songs for our party. They sounded excellent and I only wish the rest of my party would have joined me and some of my friends on the dance floor/yard. The music rocked and I would highly recommend the Mandrakes for your party/event.
