Dinner and Doors at 7:00 PM
Born in Atlanta, Georgia and raised in the wilds of Wisconsin, Mandi Strachota is the product of
southern roots and Midwest know-how, a potent mix of practicality and soulful dreaming. Mandi
has become a fixture on the Atlanta scene, playing at local spots like Northside Tavern and Blind
Willie’s, as well as several other spots around town. She is expanding her fan base beyond
Atlanta as she embarks on her second cross country tour in March 2020. Mandi is the lead
vocalist for the Wasted Potential Brass Band who performed at Bonnaroo 2018 as well as Super
Bowl LIII and recently released their first full length album titled Ruining the Surprise Party.
Her collaboration with Atlanta blues legend Mudcat on his 2018 release Castaway attracted the
attention of local music connoisseurs. She is known for her soulful vocals, but is a multi-
instrumentalist who is quickly becoming known for her songwriting. Mandi released her debut
album Fly in the fall of 2013. Her last project Unleashed, which was released in September of
2017, tells her very honest story of self-discovery. Embracing R&B, gospel and soul, with a
touch of grit and country sway, Unleashed is timeless in its sound, but thoroughly modern in its
message. “It is only after exploring and succeeding at risk-taking, that the confidence turns into
freedom and limitlessness,” says Mandi, speaking about both herself and her music, “In other
words - being set free, is only the beginning.” Mandi was recently named Creative Loafing’s
Readers’ Choice ‘Best Acoustic Artist’ for 2019. She is also the winner of the 2019 Atlanta
Blues Challenge and will be representing Atlanta in the IBC in Memphis in January 2020. She is
currently working on multiple projects expected to be released in 2020.
TYPES OF TICKETS
There are no bad views of our stage at The Vista, even if you are standing! Often these are the best tickets if you want to be up close and personal with your favorite artist. Be aware that holders of Standing Room - Main Floor tickets have not purchased a seat and are not guaranteed a seat. This means that for sold out shows, holders of these tickets will likely be standing. If you want to assure the exclusivity and comfort of a reserved table at a show that is likely to sell out, we recommend purchasing a Reserved Table. Any reserved tables not purchased will be available for General Admission on a first come first served basis.
Don’t like standing or bumping elbows, or maybe you want to take the worry out of fighting traffic to be early to get a table? Exclusivity may be for you! Reserved Table tickets provide ticket holders the option to have a table saved for you. When the doors open to our venue, your reserved table will be waiting for you. Please note, Reserved Table tickets must be purchased in groups of 4 or 6, as there are 4 or 6 seats per table.
