The Pat McManus Band are a rock/blues trio hailing from
Ireland, headed up by former Mama's Boys and Celtus guitarist,
violinist and singer song writer Pat McManus.The 'PMB' line up
is completed by former 'More Power To Your Elbow' powerful
drummer Paul Faloon and rhythmic and solid former country music
and session bass player Marty McDermott.
Irish guitar legend Pat McManus grew up in a family steeped in
Irish Traditional music.His first instrument was the violin,
which he started playing at the age of 4,but by 7 years of age
he was also playing the acoustic guitar and making appearances
with the family band and on national television.By the age of
14 years he had won the 'All Ireland' on the 'fiddle' in the
adults category.Being a folk purist he had not really thought
about Rock and Roll,but by the age of 18 his thoughts had
changed and so he picked up the electric guitar.
Pat then formed what was to become 'Mama's Boys' with his two
brother John and Tommy and they very quickly became an overnight
hit around the clubs and ballrooms of Ireland.They then went on
to tour the UK and Europe with 'Hawkwind','Wishbone Ash' and then
were asked to support 'Thin Lizzy' on their farewell tour.This
culminated in the band playing at the 'Reading Festival'as an
unsigned band,unheard of at this time....and it was there they
were finally signed to a world wide record deal with Jive/Arista....and Virgin France.
They went on to tour the world,working along side such bands as
Bon Jovi,Ratt,Black Sabbath,Iron Maiden,Rush,Sting,Gary Moore,
Scorpions,to name a few,both as support and headling.
