*** About the artist: ***

From Buffalo to Japan, Geno McManus’s talent on the guitar is no secret. Enjoying success both in the U.S. and abroad, McManus’s career has been one of diversity. He was even named to the Royal Aramanther Society in 2012, with induction by the king and queen of Sweden.

Versatility is key. And a passport. As The Buffalo News’ Andrew Galarneau wrote in 2008, “(McManus is) the guy who’ll be playing acoustic in the corner of a Lackawanna tavern one night, and be tearing up the stage of Tokyo’s Cavern Club before the week is out.”

Over the course of his career, McManus has played with over 10 different bands and traveled internationally. He spent a year recording and producing music as a second engineer at Robby Takacs’ Chameleon West studio. He helped record and produce a record for Michael Civisca. In 2008, McManus contributed backing vocals and worked on former Deep Purple singer Ian Gillan’s solo release “One Eye To Morocco” with noted producer/engineer Nick Blagona. Now he has a small studio at his house and has renewed his focus contributing to the WNY music scene as musician, mentor, producer and cheerleader.

McManus was also involved in the creation and planning the first Music Is Art Fest, as well as contributing to 11 consecutive Party For The Parks events.

Though McManus prefers to play British invasion style music like the Kinks, the Beatles and the Who, he likes to mix this sound with roots style music. His flexibility as a musician and his preference for British invasion music has helped make him a popular guitarist in Japan, where Beatlemania has never really gone away.

McManus’ wide-ranging activities are what led to him being named to the Royal Aramanther Society. It recognizes people from all walks who contribute to the “art of life.” He’s recognized as a independent artist who travels around the world in ways to “make people happy.”

Geno was inducted into the Buffalo Music Hall of Fame in 2014.
