Pat McManus Band

Live Room Theatre

Waterford Academy of Music & Arts

Friday January 30th 8pm




WAMA is proud to announce the return of legendary world renowned guitarist PAT MACMANUS to the Live Room Theatre in the Waterford Academy of Music & Arts on January 30th 2015 as part of his 2015 tour.


Many of you older rockers will remember Pat for his work with world famous band 'Mama's Boys', with hits such as "Needle In The Groove", and "Mama We're All Crazee Now". Pat has also toured with some of the greats in the music industry, such as Deep Purple, Iron Maiden, Thin Lizzy, Bon Jovi, Hawkwind, Wishbone Ash, Rush, Gary Moore, Sheryl Crow, Deacon Blue, and Jimmy Nail. He has also worked as a session man for artists which included a very wide range of acts such as John Parr, Tricky and Samantha Fox. (Pat is responsible for the guitar work on her hit single 'Touch Me').


In 2007 Pat released his first solo album and since then Pat has released 4 albums. His latest is called 'Dark Emerald Highway'. Pat McManus Band tour constantly through Europe, selling out shows wherever they play.


If being a guitar genius wasn't enough, Pat is also quite the fiddle and bouzouki player, so we are certainly in for a treat next January, especially if his last gig here is anything to go by!
