If you are looking for a jamming, professional and fun band, look no further!!!! The Funky Gators played our wedding on New Year's Eve and they were nothing short of amazing!!!! All our guests had a total blast including my parents who in their 80's hit the dance floor! It was awesome!!! There were times my feet hurt from my long day and all the dancing, but every time they took the stage, we had to dance some more! Dana and the band were quick and easy to communicate with about our needs, even going beyond our original agreement to add more members to accommodate this bride's request for a parade from the ceremony to the hall. I can't thank them enough!!!!
The Funky Gators was founded by Dana (DP) Mandell and Myrna Cooper as the front line of accordion and rubboard. Add to that the soulful and powerful vocals of Myrna and some of the best backline in the Bay Area to round out the band.
The most common configuration of the band is Accordion, Rubboard, Keyboards, drums, bass, electric guitar. The Funky Gators also have the flexibility to add additional members as needed to fill out the sounds for the needs of your event by adding Sax, Trumpet, additional guitar player and dance teacher.
