Artist Biography:
We started 5 years ago as a dulcimer group of 3, jamming weekly at Ellen's house in Mandalay Bay, CA - thus the name, Mandalay Bay Strummers. Our group jams expanded to include a mandolin, banjo, autoharp and ukelele.

We have recorded two albums: A Dulcimer Christmas and Meet the Mandalay Bay Strummers. The tunes on both albums are traditional with intriguing layering of instruments and voices with upbeat rhythms and percussions. Both albums are available at Amazon, iTunes and CDBaby and other online venues.

Our friend, Jorge Santini, a wonderful musician, guitar player, arranger, song writer and vocalist offered to produce a CDs for us. Jorge arranged the music that we played and recorded us at his personal studio. He also was a guest on our albums, playing the guitar, bass, processions, and rhythms as well as doing some singing.

We hope you enjoy our song. If you want more information on the group, please contact us at We love feedback, so feel free to email us.
