The Mannish Boys play harmonica-driven tunes with gritty fervor and dynamic energy. They perform with raw exuberance and driving rhythms that make you want to boogie.
I booked the Mannish Boys for my husband's birthday. They were great. Not only are they talented and fun, they're really nice guys with reasonable rates. I highly recommend them!
