The Manhatten Project

Since exploding on to the scene in 2010, The Manhattan Project has become one of the fastest growing live electronic duos in the northeast. Selling out shows regionally with bands like Lotus, Conspirator, and BioDiesel, and playing this year's Camp Bisco 11 festival, they've gained national attention as a band on the rise. Drawing influences from house, dub, drum n bass, techno and lounge, The Manhattan Project brings sophistication to the dance floor with their original compositions, high energy beats and mind melting textures. Armed with an arsenal of keyboards, synths, electronic and acoustic percussion, they seamlessly merge analogue and digital sounds to create a sonic boomtronic style all their own. Live visuals by NGB and epic light shows bring the concert experience to a new level, and have earned them the reputation of a must-see live band.

In just a short time, the duo has toured all over the northeast, playing consistently to large crowds at dance clubs, live music venues and late night festival slots, collaborated with top regional DJ's and MC's, performed live sets on top alternative radio stations and have gained loyal fans through word of mouth and high energy live shows.

Their new EP 'Atomic Bomb Party Vol. 2' was just released in April for free download to great reviews and is embraced by DJ and live music fans alike! The Manhattan Project features Shawn Drogan on drums and electronics, and Charlie Lindner on keyboards and synths.
