Manny Sanchez (Drums/Percussion/Vocals) 

Manny got his first drum set when he was 9 years old. He is part of a rare breed of drummers that have the ability to hold down the groove and sing at the same time. He enjoys listening to and playing all types of music: rock & roll, funk, blues, r&b, jazz, jazz fusion, folk, Americana, Afro-beat, Latin, progressive rock, and last but not least, reggae music!
