Manuel The Band
Emerging from Long Beach,CA the Rock-Pop-Jam Band, Manuel The Band, was founded by songwriter, guitarist and vocalist Manuel Grajeda. Described as “a breath of fresh air” by Julie Montante of Coachella Valley Weekly, Manuel The Band has fused an unorthodox range of instruments not normally seen in the pop-music genre. Manuel The Band has made an impression on the Southern California music scene with a unique sound stemming from influences such as John Mayer, Dave Matthews Band and Young the Giant. The band’s lineup consists of Manuel Grajeda (Guitar/Vox), Brandon Charlesworth (Drums), George Madrid (Pedal Steel), Richard Fernandez (Trombone), Kevin Nowacki (Bass), and Matt Kalin (Saxophone).
