In her previous punk/rock bands, Mandarino shared the stage with such legends as Cheap Trick, David Lee Roth and The Buzzcocks and actively toured across Canada, the U.S., France, and Indonesia playing in front of a staggering 90,000 people. She received highly praised performances at Vancouver's New Music West festival, Toronto's NXNE and Canadian Music Week, New York City's esteemed punk rock venues CBGB‘s and The Continental, Los Angeles' International Pop Overthrow Festival and the ROCKRGRL Music Conference in Seattle.
The Fantasy Defender takes Mandarino in a new direction which utilizes her melodic pop instincts while keeping the rock ‘n’ roll edge. The project is clever, catchy, intoxicating, and undeniably fun.
