About Mango Lasse
Based out of Los Angeles, CA, Mango Lasse is the product of several different bands from the city, all with a love of good rock ‘n roll. Four different musicians from four different cities, somehow found their way together to create the unique yet familiar sound of Mango Lasse.
Rachael Weinberg grew up in Chicago, the daughter of a musical theater family, no family gathering wasn’t complete without performances, though the likes of Broadway were fun, she always longed to be a true rock ‘n roller. Finding her way to LA, she met up with Richie Cashman who looked up at her one day and said, “have you ever thought of playing the guitar?” Thus her long-supressed love of rock and roll was released. Since then, she has played with several bands, performed throughout the Los Angeles area, and Chicago.
Originally from the Bay Area, Kevin Pugh moved to Los Angeles and has performed in various So. Cal venues, such as; The Key Club, The Laugh Factory, The Cat Club, 14 Below, McCabe’s Guitar Shop, Brennan’s, Room Five, and the Koreatown Mayfest.
