Whether he’s ripping on the piano or laying it down on the organ, he is the guy that makes it a sunshine daydream. Manny was asked to fill in for a few shows last summer (2017) and instantly added a flavor that made things comes alive for this group. This Fairport native is an experienced musician of 30 years and has been performing all over the area, in a variety of groups (Abbey’s Café, Tryptic Soy, Slide in Sideways, Stationary Escape Pod). He has also been involved in numerous recording projects as a session player in the studio. He notes his major influences include players like Jon Lord, Bernie Worrel, and Chuck Leavell. As an independent designer/contractor, music is not the only are that his creative abilities run deep. Playing music in this area with some great musicians has been both a passion and an honor for Manny.
