"E & The Boys" calander is filling up FAST. Mananager & guitarist Robert Mann tells us "We really wanted to play BB&BBQ this year & Morano's is the place. Morano's has a FANTASTIC stage. We are stoked. We start early enough we feel folks can come see our show then still make the other parties, OR just hang with us all night!"

Thursday, September 25 is the date. 7:00 is the time. Robert added, "Morano's is right next to the Manufacture's area at Baum stadium. PERFECT location. That's why the decission was made to start at 7. This was folks can come in, eat, have a beer or other drink & have a good time! AND it doesn't get in the way of their Friday & Saturday nights on Dickson!" PERFECT!

Then, the following Saturday, E & The Boys head over to Siloam Springs to play the 59 Biker Run for Diabetes. The band is set to play at 1:00 in the afternoon.

Another show is also scheduled for the third of October. But you'll need to stay tuned for more info on that one!

Till then...

E & The Boys Name Matt Mann as New Drummer

E & The Boys Name

Matt Mann As New Drummer

Wednesday August 13 2014

Fayetteville Ar

  

Today E & The Boys have named Matthew (Matt) Mann to replace long time drummer Rick Jackman. Robert Mann tell us "Rick was forced to make a decission. His job was very demanding and he simply needed more time at home. We all love Rick and E & The Boys will ALWAYS have a place for him. In fact, I wouldn't be surprised to see him playing with us on a few tunes in the future.  We absolutely support any decission Rick made. He's part of our extended family. He's one of us."

When Rick told the band of his decission E & The Boys launched a search for the best fit. Matt Mann was always around and has been the fill in drummer since the band started back in 2011. After looking for over a month, it became obvious. Matt Mann was the best choice.

Matthew Mann is the son of Robert & Elizabeth (E) Mann. Matt will be a Freshman at the University of Arkansas Fall 2014 and list Jimmy Sullivan (Avenged Sevenfold) Neil Peart (Rush) Mike Portnoy & Cobus as his biggest influences.

 "It was a DUHHH moment for us."  said Robert Mann.  Matt already knows the tunes, he knows the stops & starts. He was there ALL THE TIME and HES A PHENOMINAL musician.""He's just a natural drummer & after the dust settled, we all looked at each other & went 'why are we looking? Matt is here & he's better than anyone we've tried'.

 

Matt plays Saxiphone (Bari & Alto), he has receintly picked up the Guitar & the Bass.

 

"We actually were having practice sometime back... I'm thinking it was in 2011. Our then drummer didn't make it to practice so we were trying to use a drum machine. That wasn't working. Matt kept saying 'Dad... Let me play' & I just blew him off. Finally E said, 'Just let him try.' So I did. We played "THe Middle" by "Jimmie Eat World". HE FREAKING NAILED IT. " Better than the drummer we had in the band. So I said lets play "My Own Worst Enemy" which is by LIT. HE FREAKING NAILED THAT ONE TOO! So the next day I bought him a drum kit & he's been sitting in with us every since." Robert added.

You may actually have seen Matt playing with E & The Boys. His first show was at Jose's on Dickson Street shortly after his 16th birthday. Since then, he has filled in many times places like Morano's, Shirley's, Legend's...

You can catch Matt Mann with E & The Boys Saturday August 30'th at Morano's on South Razorback Road in Fayetteville.

 

E and The Boys Set Show for July 4th With Special Appearance by Pat Marchino

E and The Boys Set Show for July 4th With Special Appearance by

Drummer Pat Marchino

(Formerly of Ted Nugent and

The Pat Travers Band)

Fayetteville, AR

June 18, 2014

Announced today that E & The Boys have booked a last minute gig at Marano's (formerly Billy's Bar & Grill) for July the 4th.

Robert Mann, lead guitarist & manager of E & THe Boys said "We're so psyched! I started following Pat when he was with Pat Travers back in the early to mid 80's. He's one of my all time favorite drummers. I put him up there with the best. We became friends on Facebook and that's where this started."

This is how it started. Pat sent Robert a message on Facebook saying he was coming through town & if E & The Boys were playing he wanted to sit in. Robert said they didn't have a show scheduled but if Pat was serious, he'd make it happen. Robert then contacted the owner of a few clubs & bars and Morano's was the first to respond.

"We've played there a couple of times" said Robert. "It's one of the nicer stages in Northwest Arkansas. I love that place. Food is great, staff is fantastic & the owner, Adam, is just about the nicest person you'd ever meet. We love that place. PLUS, it's not everyday you get to play with someone you've admired for some 20 plus years. It's too cool.... no it 3 COOL!" Robert said laughing.

Robert added, "we're adding a special song for this show. A song by "Riggs" called "Ready Or Not". Jerry Riggs was playing with Pat Travers when I first met Pat Marchino. One of the songs they played was Ready Or Not. One of my favorite songs in Pat's set list. I've been wanting to play that song since 1984 or so. And NOW it looks like I'm gonna get to play it with THE MAN PAT MARCHINO ON DRUMS! HOLY CRAP THIS IS COOL!"

E & The Boys hit the stage at 9:00. The set Marchino will be playing in has yet to be determined.

Get there early, it might be a full house!

Fayetteville, Arkansas

June 18, 2014

 

E & The Boys have been busy busy busy! This Friday the band will be at Shirley's Bar in Springdale for their first appearance in Springdale in 11 months.

"We played Jose's in Springdale last July. In fact, two shows last July. Getting back to Springdale is gonna be cool!" said Robert Mann. Lead guitarist & manager of the group.

In fact, it was the Fourth of July Bike night and the following weeks Saturday that E & The Boys were in Springdale.

"Springdale isn't like Fayetteville's Dickson Street. It's a WHOLE different crowd. More adults and less college kids. It's folks that actually lived the 80's and can relate on a more personal level. So that's ALWAYS cool" Robert went on to say.

E & The boys also have a few more dates confirmed as well. Two more dates at Shirley's, and one in Eureka. ALSO, rumor has it that there may be a July 4th show with a special guest musician.

STAY TUNED!

Congratulations Matt Mann

as he graduates High School

E & The Boys are proud to send out congratulations to fill in drummer Matt Mann. Tonight, May 15 2014, Matthew Robert Mann will graduate from Farmington High School.

Matthew is the son of E & The Boys lead singer Elizabeth Mann & guitarist Robert Mann.  "Matthew is a natural" said Robert. "One night back when the band was just starting out, the drummer we had didn't show up. So he just sat down behind the drums, asked for a chance to play & freaking nailed it. The next day we bought him a drum set & he was off and running."

When the drummer for E & The Boys isn't available to play, Matthew sits in. His first gig playing was Jose's on Dickson Street in 2012 at the age of 15.

 "He knows the songs and he's actually pretty good" said Elizabeth. "I am so proud of him."

Next for Matthew is College. Matt will be a Freshman at the University of Arkansas, Fayetteville this fall. Matt has said he is interested in a degree in Computer Graphic Design with an interest in Business.

Friday Show Recording Deemd a HUGE SUCCESS!

Friday Show Recording Deemed a HUGE SUCCESS

Fayetteville, AR

Even with the Razorbacks loosing Friday, Everything went according to plan at Billy's Bar & Grill for "E & The Boys".

"We were hoping for a huge turnout at Billy's for our Video" said Robert Mann, Guitarist & Manager of E & The Boys. "Even with the Hogs loosing & the bicycle event that totally screwed up traffic in Fayetteville, we still had a great crowd. When the hogs loose, the fans aren't in any sort of mood to go out. Usually they head home as soon as the game ends. We didn't totally bank on those fans coming but it would have been nice. We still had a great, involved crowd on hand!"

E & The Boys were planning on shooting the show for a Promotional video. Even with the traffic issues caused by the Bike rally, the Band still managed to get everyone involved on location & the recording made.

Robert said "I was a bit worried at first. Our sound guy got stuck at an intersection for over half an hour as those bicycle folks took FOREVER! We barely finished Sound Check an hour before showtime. I wish those people with that bicycle rally would take into consideration the other major events going on. It was frustrating to say the least. Our video guy was pulling double duty. He had to shoot the baseball game & our event. He almost didn't make the game because of the bicyclist blocking traffic at the SAME TIME as people were trying to get to the stadium."

The video should be available in a few weeks. A preliminary audio recording was made available Sunday to Robert & The band & it sounded "ABSOLUTELY PERFECT!" said Robert


Stay tuned for more on this topic in the next few days!

Stage is set to record Friday's show

Stage Is Set To Video Tape

E & The Boys Show

This Friday

Fayetteville AR

04/21/14

It's been a while in the works but today Robert Mann, Lead Guitarist & Manager for E & The Boys, announced that everything is set.

"I've spent the last 2 weeks focusing on this endeavor" Robert said. "Now it looks like all the pieces are in place. We've hired a local video company and a local sound company to put this all together. If we're gonna do this, it HAS to be done right".

In a previous story E & The Boys announced Josh Irwin would be doing the video which is still set. The part missing was the audio & front of house sound. Robert Mann said that the final plans were worked out Monday morning, April 21.

"It's important that we not only get a good recording but that we keep it local as well. Both sound & video are local folks." Robert said.

The show starts at 9:00 at Billy's Bar & Grill which is literally a few feet from Baum Stadium. Friday the Razorback Baseball team will take on Auburn. First pitch is set for 6:35. Robert said, "That means the Baseball crowd will be leaving about the same time we start. Hopefully that will help bring in a larger crowd."

There also will be specials for the night. $1.00 draft beer and 2 for 1 admission ($5.00 cover) with your ticket from the game. Also $3.00 well drinks all night.

Adam Morano, Owner & manager of Billy's Bar & Grill said he hopes people"Come out and see a great show, fill up Billy's and make a fantastic video for E and the Boys!"

Again, showtime is 9:00 at Billy's Bar & Grill on Razorback Road in Fayetteville.

 

Till next time.....


PARTY ON DUDE!

E and The Boys to Video Tape Show at Billy's on the 25th

 

E & The Boys To Video Tape Show @ Billy's on the 25'th

 

04/16/14

Fayetteville, AR

It was announced today that E & The Boys will be video taping the entire show at Billy's Bar & Grill, on Friday April 25. Billy's is located on Razorback Road near Baum Stadium. The video will be used to create several "promotional" videos for future use.

Robert Mann, lead guitarist & manager for E & The Boys said "The timing is right. The stars are aligning & we need to do this. We want the world to see what we're about and how our fans and crowd have such a good time.The Razorbacks are playing Baseball LITERALLY FEET away from Billy's. That game will end about the same time we hit the stage. Billy's has an awesome stage & is such a great venue. Plus we've added a great light show. It's just the right time"

Robert added, "Now days every band has to have a video & good recording. Back in the day all you needed was a photo, maybe a set list of what you played and if you were really good, a cassette of your band playing. If you had someone hit record on your boom box that was good enough. But starting in 80's, if you were REALLY on top of your game and knew someone with a cam corder you could have a video to show. Wasn't really needed but you looked really high tech if you did."

E (Elizabeth Mann) said "Technology really has changed things. Now if you want to play the big venues and events, you have to have a good video and recording of your band."

Robert added "yea, now everywhere you go they ask for your promo pack, your website, facebook page and where they can find your video on youtube. It's NOT a bad thing. I mean, I would ask for that if I had an event or club."

E said "We really do want everyone there. It'll be fun and like all bands, the better the crowd, the better the show!"

Robert added "PLUS, I'm working on some 'specials' with the bar for all in attendance. And as usual, there will be several chances to win some TOTALLY 80's prizes"

E & The Boys are asking that everyone come early & be prepared to have fun. PLUS everyone has a great chance of actually being ON the video!

The show is slated to start at 9:00 & go till 1:00.

Until next time...

PARTY ON!!!!
