Frequently mis-spelled as The Joe Mangles, The Joe Mangels were formed in 2009 and are described as ‘possibly the second (or actually, maybe third) best tribute to a cover band that the world has ever seen’.
The Joe Mangels are a fun-fuelled festival band, vandalising timeless classics in their own “if it ain’t broke, break it” style. They pride themselves in reducing three hours of pop, easy listening and country music into 90 minutes of rock ‘n pop ‘n punk ‘n roll. If Carlsberg did cover bands, they probably wouldn’t sound like this!
Playing mainly festivals, pubs, clubs, theatres, back gardens, living rooms and anywhere with an electricity supply, notable supports to date include Big Country and The Jam.
