Mandolin Avenue is a Sacramento string band that plays original bluegrassy type music with twist. Lots of harmonies, great pickin'and odd instruments are the order for this star-studded band.
They can perform a short set of high-energy foot-stompers, with sweet ballads to round it out or play all night, and rock your socks off. These are are current members and those who have performed with us in past days and surely will again!
