Barry Mando Project

 Lexington, Kentucky, USA

Boundless sounds of imagination and creativity. Structural improvisation that neither feels confined nor capacious. Music that can make you think but let loose and shake what your momma gave ya. Feel good music.


TThe Barry Mando Project has some of the best musicians Lexington has to offer. The trio is comprised of Danny Williams on Electric Baritone Mandolin and Vocals, Danny Cecil on Acoustic and Electric Basses and Paul Deatherage on Drums and Percussion. Between the three musicians the list of experience reads like a who's who of the best bands and musicians around. Members of BMP have shared the stage with; Sam Rivers, Kenny Werner, Bob Mintzer, Jeff Coffin, James Williams and Bob Degen, Arlo Guthrie (Carnegie Hall performance 2007), American Spiritual Ensemble, Howard Levy (Bela Fleck and the Flecktones) and Kelly Pratt (Arcade Fire, Beirut) This project is a very unique instrumentation with a very eclectic range of musical diversity. Danny W. says "In these modern times of music there is so much diversity out there and we are influenced by it all." This special band is playing mostly original compositions from Danny Williams and some well arranged covers as well. This idea of variety makes this group stand out with elements of Funk, Jazz, Neo-Soul, Rock, Electronica and World music it definitely satisfies a need for everyone looking for good music. Duke Ellington said "There are two kinds of music. Good music, and the other kind. If it sounds good and feels good, then it is good!"
