This past Saturday Irish Rockers, The Answer, played the Hard Rock Café in Atlanta.
The opening acts were Saturn 5, Soulbread and The Marty Manous Band.
The Marty Manous Band. For me the Rock/Blues band was the surprise of the night. Before the show started I had never even heard of them, but they are clearly one of the more talented bands coming out of Atlanta.
The band consists of Guitarist Marty Manous, Vocalist Josh Rieff, Drummer Cody King and Bassist Gage Gilmore.
I personally have never been a huge blues fan, but blues fan or not, you cant help but to be impressed by vocalist Josh Rieff. Its obvious that Rieffs intense love for music is the attributing factor to the soulful, passionate delivery of each and every word he sings.
Ive also never been one for long guitar solos, unless you count Freebird and Hotel California, but Marty Manous has a gift that deserves to be showcased. His intricate guitar work was a mix of blues, classical and rock music and the crowd loved every minute of it.
I definitely recommend that you check out the The Marty Manous Band, you wont be disappointed.
