MANGROOVE was great. Not only did they look fabulous in their tuxs, their sound was superb. Highly recommend, and we will be calling them again for sure. Thanks so much,guys.
Professionalism & class Mangroove is the best!!
So looking forward to our next event ......
What to Expect
************************************************ "Sensitivity to and interaction with the audience" *********************************
The "nucleus" of MANGROOVE is a DUO that sounds like a quartet (includes organ, bass and drum sounds with two vocalists)...other instruments are added as the gig requires.
Manny, a native of Boston, MA, has performed with such distinguished artists and educators as MAYA ANGELOU and has also performed with STEVEN TYLER of AEROSMITH. Manny has also worked with such noteables as MAURICE STARR, ANDRE WARD, DONALD HARRISON, and the late SABBY LEWIS, to name but a few. "Mangroove" also performed with multiple Grammy Award nominee and recipient KURT ELLING at the Democratic National Convention in Boston.
Wilmington, NC recent collaborations have included such musicians as Jack Krupicka, Benny Hill, Doug Irving, Teddy Burgh, Jerald Shynett, Natalie Boeyink, and Durham's Brian Miller.
(Manny Santos is featured on the following recordings: 'Cartagena,' The Geoffrey Hicks Quartet, available on Amazon.com; 'No Place To Hide,' by Treg Monty, CDFreedom.com; 'Echoing,' by Willie Sordillo, Amazon.com; and recently-released 'The Sum Of Me,' by Candida Rose)
