ABOUT

Hello my name is Manny. I'm orinially from Brownsville, TX in the RGV, but now I live in San Antonio, TX. I've been around the music scene for 25 years now. I started drumming at the age of 10, playing in my uncles conjunto band in the RGV, TX. There I transitioned in to Alternative Rock/Spanish Rock with a band I started in Middle School all the way through my senior year in 2000. Throughout my high school years I joined the Estudiantina - (Musical group formed by university students who sing popular songs accompanied by various instruments, especially string, and dressed in period costumes that cover with a cape.) where I learned how to play the guitar, bass, and learned to read music. In 2002 I joined a Norteño band played drums from 2002 to 2005, then moved to percussion and MC from 2005 to 2010. Within that time, I toured with the band through South Texas, playing in concerts, festivals, private events, etc. In 2010, I moved to San Antonio, where as of today, I have been free lancing my drumming skills all over town. I looking forward on forming a Spanish Rock band, if you are interested hit me up.
