For the last 25 years, Hungarian/German producer and percussionist Leslie Mandoki has united legendary icons of Anglo-American rock and jazz-rock into one supergroup he calls the “ManDoki Soulmates.” For the first time in the US, the group will perform their debut public performance at New York City’s Beacon Theatre on Monday, January 29th, at 8 pm.
Mandoki, who escaped Communist Hungary as a youth in the 60s, decided to follow his father’s dying words, to “live your dreams, not dream your life.” Having dreams of performing with legendary artists from the US, including members of Cream, Toto, Emerson Lake and Palmer, and Blood Sweat and Tears, Mandoki has achieved all that he dreamed and more!
Today, the ManDoki Soulmates have been on their “Wings of Freedom” tour, performing at sold-out concerts at the Hammersmith Apollo in London, L’Olympia in Paris, Berlin Concert House, Palais des Festivals in Cannes, and Sziget festival in Hungary (25th Anniversary Concert).
The supergroup is excited to bring their jaw-dropping show to the US for the first time on Jan. 29th! Proceeds from the concert will be going to benefit the MusiCares Foundation, which provides support and community services to musicians in need of medical, personal and financial assistance. Tickets are $35-126 BUY LINK
