YOU'LL BE FINE

 

The band experience

 

 

Described as a "nice mix of musical pacing with fun arrangements," Manuel the Band has created a style of music that enlightens the listener. Using rock melodies, mixed with jazzy chords, to tell stories like a singer- songwriter, MTB has created a music genre that captures the feelings we've all had and can relate to.

manuel the band takes first place! 

Manuel the Band took first place at the San Diego Battle of the Bands 2017. The judges described the music as a "nice mix of musical pacing with fun arrangements." Of course, the favorite comment was this: " Having multiple singers was rad- not to mention trombone and pedal steel- very cool."

Residency success at the wine bar, LONG BEACH CA. 

The Wine Bar in Long Beach, California has become MTB's newest place to hang out. Over the past few months, MTB has put on shows at the tasteful wine bar. While each show has had a great turnout, the last two dates were beyond words. On August 9th, and 16th, MTB packed the house! For three hours, MTB played along with some other great local artists and bands. Both shows saw great revenue for the bar and furthered cemented MTB's presence in the Long Beach music scene. They look forward to hosting more shows in the future.
