I picked this up as it was two women who have nice voices together and some mando playing. #Nice new folk music. #Check them out at http://www.diddybops.com. #

Not OT or 60s folk. #Modern singer songwriter folky.

Worth looking at if this stuff is occasionaly your cuppa tea. #I Like It! The Video for Sister Kate has e-mando!

They'll open for Nickel Creek at Merle Fest. On the video page there is mando in just about every song.

decent songs- great voices, and they look a bit wacky with the makeup and costumes- prob a whole bunch of fun to see live.

Saw them open for Nickel Creek around Halloween last year. It was definitely a fun show with a lot of vaudeville style antics going on. For the first 1/3 of the show they had a guy on stage carving a pumpkin. There was juggling and dramatics and just a whole lot of fun. One of the many highlights were the improvised pirate songs they played through out the show.
I would definitely go see them again.

Two years and half years ago I was walking through the Santa Monica Farmers Markey and i saw a very cute girl(Amanda) trying to play some chords on the mandolin. I was with my girlfriend who said I had to stay away from her. Knowing that I may make a comment or suggestion.Later that summer I saw a band improve on the Venice Board Walk, Amand was in the back beiing very carefull and shy and trying to keep up. I stopped and watched, who could resist her charm. That next Summer I saw them as The Ditty Bops perform at the Famers Market, they stole the crowd, Amanda in mini dress was still learning but could really sing.They said they were performing a Largo on fairfax in West Hollywood. I went to see them there and became my favorite you teenage lust girl band.I had worked years back with the Go Go's and later The Bangles and I knew that this was the next big thing.I was at Merlefest and I told Amanda this story, and it was proclaimed I am the first Amanda Ditty Bop Fan.
