Born and raised in New York City, MANITOBA'S punk/hard rock roots date back to CBGB and beyond. Led by former Dictators, Manitoba's Wild Kingdom, and occasional DKT/MC5 frontman Handsome Dick Manitoba, the band is is comprised of a mighty crew. Ross The Boss (Dictators, Manowar, Manitoba's Wild Kingdom) on lead guitar teams up his with pal, guitarist Daniel Rey (Ramones songwriter and producer, Ronnie Spector, MWK). Add JP "Thunderbolt" Patterson (Dictators, MWK) absolutely smashing the drum kit and big, bad Dean "The Dream" Rispler's (Murphy's Law) pounding bass to the mix and there you have it...Two great guitar players and a killer, melodic, throbbing rhythm section led by the world's greatest entertainer. MANITOBA. Simple. Unpretentious. LOUD. FUN. The way it's SUPPOSED to be!
