St. John Artists Presents - Manny B & The Rhythm Nights

Manny B & The Rhythm NightsThis four piece act is one of the Midwest premier show bands. Their comedy, showmanship and musical abilities bring audiences to standing ovations at all of their performances. Leader, Manny Bautista, has formulated a combination of entertainment, comedy, audience participation, soulful rock and rhythm & blues into this package of four musicians.

Manny B & The Rhythm Nights Are:

Manny B began his lifelong love affair with music, by studying piano, at age 3. The son of a concert classical violinist, Manny studied classical guitar in Barcelona, Spain for 3 years and signed his first recording contract with Reprise Records at age 13. Manny B has toured with high-profile recording artists such as Gladys Knight and the Pips, Wayne Cochran & the CC Riders, Hall & Oates, The Grass Roots and many other prominent entertainers and musicians.  Manny B has dazzled audiences all over the USA from LA to Chicago to New York. From Santana to Segovia to Stevie Ray his spectacular guitar artistry is a force to behold!  He is Blues, he is Rock & Roll, he is Funk, he is Latin but most of all, Manny B is a player and performer with a unique blueprint for music and showmanship. Donnie is the percussionist for the Rhythm Nights and has been associated with Manny B for 24 years.  Donnie also doubles as the sound and light coordinator and throughout the entire show he is constantly busy making lighting and sound changes and creating special effects. Born with a metronome in his head, Donnie has played drums for such legendary performers as The Drifters, Del Shannon, and The Platters.
Papa Phil displays a talent that crosses a broad spectrum. He dances he sings and man, can he play that bass guitar! You can’t help but notice that million-dollar grin of his. Papa Phil led his own group for 10 years in Las Vegas. Those years spent in Vegas add that "marquis" quality to the Rhythm Nights. That kind of contribution is priceless. From the first note to the last, each performance this man gives is from his heart and always with a smile! Known in music circles as "The Voice", Miquel’s vocal versatility is astounding.  From The Beatles, to Lou Rawls, to INXS it all sounds fresh when Miquel is behind the mike. Whatever he sings is done with conviction, passion, and great expression.  Miquel’s keyboard playing is equally versatile. Having performed on cruise ships and in night clubs through America, Miquel has many years of live performance under his belt. A polished and professional entertainer, this man stands tall among his peers.
