Baby Lemonade is a band in the neo-psychedelic genre formed in Los Angeles. Their 1998 album Exploring Music was produced by Darian Sahanaja of The Wondermints. The group was Love founder Arthur Lee's backing band prior to his incarceration, and after his release from prison in 2001 until his death in 2006. As such, they provided the most stable line-up of Love in the band's history. In July 2005 the band were due to perform in the UK with Arthur Lee and the original Love guitarist Johnny Echols. However, when the band got to the airport in LA ready to fly to England, Arthur Lee refused to leave the States. The other members of the band, including Echols, decided to carry on without Lee and played a foreshortened series of gigs under the name "The Love Band". It wasn't until the following year that it was announced that Lee had been diagnosed with acute myeloid leukaemia which was to lead to his death in August 2006.

The name Baby Lemonade comes from a track from Syd Barrett's album Barrett. Mike Randle and Rusty Squeezebox were previously members of Los Angeles band Bad Press.
