Shows with Manish Boys in it

Fresh out of the recording studio after laying down 17 tracks for their third studio release, The Mannish Boys come to you with more polished grit than ever before.  Returning to, in essence, the original core of the band, The Mannish Boys have added even more show stopping musicians to the already dynamic lineup which makes up the one band blues festival that is The Mannish Boys.  Assembled from the cream of the crop of today’s blues veterans and young bloods, the flexible and rotating cast of vigorous musicians and entertainers keep things interesting and fresh.

Grinding their blues to an incandescent element through appearances before sold-out crowds and on festival stages in the U.S., Canada and in Europe, The Mannish Boys have become universally praised as one of the most exciting blues projects to hit the scene in years!  The current lineup features Richard “Big Foot” Innes on drums, Ronnie James Weber or Tom Leavey on bass, Kid Ramos and Frank “Paris Slim” Goldwasser on guitar, Randy Chortkoff blowing harp and lending vocals, front-man Finis Tasby handling the vocals and very special guests, Kirk “Eli” Fletcher, loaded with zeal and fluidity on guitar and resurrected soul and blues Chicago legend, Bobby Jones bringing down the house with his intensely rich B.B.-esque vocals.

The Mannish Boys are guaranteed to bring you a show that will forever be locked in your blues vault of experiences with live music.  DO NOT miss out on your chance to see this world renowned SUPER GROUP perform on a stage near you!
