Johnny Mandell and the Muddcatts


Johnny Mandell was born in Central Texas June 29. He started singing at age 5 and was not “discovered” until 1999 by the Nix boys. After hearing his voice, they finally convinced him to join the MuddCatts and perform Elvis tunes.

His favorite thing about performing is seeing the audience having a good time. His humble attitude, amazing voice, showmanship and striking resemblance to the “King” make him one of the top Elvis acts in the country.
