Having survived a very public struggle with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia, you’d expect Jack’s Mannequin lead singer and songwriter Andrew McMahon to explore some pretty heavy themes through his music and get kinda emo. Instead, the band more often than not comes out with energetic melodies perfect for a live crowd to sing along to. With strong and catchy piano sounds backed by rhythmic guitar and McMahon's soulful vocals channeling a truly Southern Californian sound, you're sure to do just that. Welcome these survivors and Orange County natives home as they perform at the Fox Theater in Pomona on the heels of the release of their third studio album, People and Things.
