A Splendid TIme Was had By All!

May 1st, 2012

Indeed it was certainly a splendid time in Stockholm! “Cheers, Greetings & Hugs” to my new “Amaranther Family”…Thanks for accepting me…Extra Special thanks must be shouted out to: My great friend Michael Lee jackson (WWW.RWAVMUSIC.COM), for being ever persistent in making sure I made it this year…and a SUPER EXTRA SPECIAL “Bow, Wink, and Nod” to the very legendary Ulf Karneman, and Matthew Develen (WWW.SHINESQUAD.COM) for being the greatest hosts and organizers.  It was such an honor to be granted this medal of Knighthood, and to meet so many amazingly wonderful people from around the world…I hope to see you all much sooner than later, and for the rest of my life!

In other news..Since returning from Buffalo it has been a non-stop..Since arriving home on April 23rd..I was part of a great show at Nietzsche’s (nietzsches.com/), where we raised money for The Buffalo Niagara Riverkeeper (bnriverkeeper.org/), by celebrating the music of Canada’s (and Buffalo’s) The Tragically Hip, hosted and organized by Seamus Gallvan founder of The Good Neighborhood (www.thegoodneighborhood.com/)…After that was a Special night of Beatles music for his Mom’s Birthday party…Then another private event…

Also for those who want the simplicity of it..my latest EP Never Be The Same has been picked up by iTunes!  Find it here: itunes.apple.com/us/album/never-be-the-same/id332013158 (It is also available on Amazon.com, Rhapsody.com, CDUniverse.com and several other digital retailers world-wide)…If you want an iTunes alternative stop by one of these alternate places, or do a google search of my name and album title…

Please be kind and support independent music by donating or paying for it…(Even if you only buy once and then copy & share)….It’s good Karma, and helps make for a better music experience…

Anyway..onwardand upward we dig our way towards Summer… Summer in Buffalo can’t be beat..so for the most part I’m gonna be parking here for the next few months and enjoy it by doing a lot of different shows in Buffalo City and around Western New York, in a seemingly endless array of guises, styles, and configurations.  Sometimes solo, sometimes duo, sometimes with a trio, and other times with a full band…Check the gig calendar to see what’s what and who’s who,and where’s where…One thing is for certain… I’ll be around somewhere…

My Uncle “Sonny” said “Nothing grows under his feet”..and just like my love of traveling to different places, I can’t seem to pick just one style of music in today’s ever expanding genre specific world …So let’s say my “genre” is “ROCKPOPBLUESCELTICSOULFUNKOLDIESCLASSICJAMETC”..mixed with occasional “interpretive dance”, windmills and broken guitar strings…What can I say..I live to give…

As always this website is a completely incomplete “work in progress” as I try (attempt?) to chart, and navigate these hostile waters of the virtual world…Please forgive its haphazardness…

If anyone out there would like to help me “steer this thing”..I’d be ever grateful..Inquire within…The door is always open… Until then, please friend me on FACEBOOK (Geno McManus)

As always…Cheers & Sincere Thanks for the fantastic support!

Geno McManus To be Knighted!

March 6th, 2012

On April 18th 2012 I will be heading to Stockholm, Sweden to attend The Royal Amaranther Ball to be inducted into the Royal Amaranther Society by the King and Queen! The Royal Amaranther Ball has been held bi-annually since the 1600s. It is quite an honor to be recognized as an artist, and to be inducted into this social order!
