Manamana (Muh-Nah-Muh-Nah) is the embodiment of professionalism and musicianship combined with an electrifying live experience that won't be forgotten.
The band was founded in July of 2010 by Butch Bobcat, P. Shway, and Mr. Saturday Knight out of what was supposed to be a one off show. Three days before a bill on July 23rd that needed another band to open the show, they decided to put together a set comprised of songs that Butch Bobcat had written several years earlier. After just two practices, they took the stage with such intensity and energy that by the end of their set, the entire audience was in a state of euphoria and craving more. At that moment, Manamana was born and has since been dedicated to their fans in putting on a high energy, charismatic live show filled with addictively catchy music.
Manamana isn't your average rock band. Their music encompasses many different styles that range through blues, rock, alternative, and metal with lyrics that easily relate to the hardest of partiers as well as the soberest of designated drivers. All of their songs are composed of tight grooves and brilliant hooks that will keep the crowd captivated through their entire show.
Manamana has earned the respect of many artists, fans, and venues with their high level of professionalism as well as their dedication to the music scene. They are all great fans of music themselves and in that, they constantly strive to give their fans the best concert experience that they have ever had.
Poor Man's Fame
We started as a cover band in late 2010.
In 2011 we made a promo cd with our versions of songs we played so we could book shows. After a few months of our songs being on MySpace we were contacted by a label scout and asked about writing our own material.
In spring of 2012 we went to Atlanta and recorded our first original "All or Nothing" with producer Alex Rexroat Universal Recording Company / Pendlewood Studios. That single landed us a 2 year record deal with private label Public Records / Medical Records. The single also grabbed the attention of other major labels as well as some veteran musicians that inquired about doing some collaborations. However, we decided to go with the private label.
A few weeks into our signing trouble stuck us, we had to find a new drummer. Months went by as we searched and played with different drummers and in the spring of 2013, we went back to finish recording our debut album, a friend lent us hit drumming skills. After recording the debut album that drummer became a member of the band. Our debut album is due out October 2013 preceded by a video for our first single “Narcissistic” off the debut album "Tell The Story".
