Fandango were an American pop rock band[1] fronted by vocalist Joe Lynn Turner.

The band opened for acts like The Allman Brothers and Chicago.[2] Turner has stated that the band took influences from the Eagles and southern rock. He also claims the group disbanded after their equipment was stolen[3] and that they had various problems.[4] Turner's work with the group got him noticed by Ritchie Blackmore, who chose him to replace Graham Bonnet in Rainbow.[5] Larry Dawson (stage name of Larry Dvoskin), one of the band's keyboardists, would later play for Uli Jon Roth.
