E & The Boys ROCK GEORGE'S!

E & The Boys ROCK George's!

 

Fayetteville AR;

01-12-2015

E & The Boys have already kicked off the new year and rocked George's Majestic Lounge like never before.

After a fantastic start to 2015 at the "Class Event Center" in Farmington Arkansas, E & The Boys immediately turned their attention to "A NIGHT OF BIG HAIR" at "George's".

Robert Mann, lead guitarist and manager for the group said "We were asked by Hot Lix (the headliner of the evening) to play the lounge at George's back in December I think it was. Anyway, we our two bands are a great match. They are all about 80's Hair Metal like Poison, Warrent and Whitesnake and we're more top 40 hits from the same decade.' 'It was cool. There were guys all decked out wigs & all. Then you had the0 women wearing their best 80's stuff. From leg warmers to off the shoulder oversized tees & mini skirts. It was sooooooo cool!"

E and the boys started at 8:30 and played till Hot Lix began somewhere around 9:45. Then E & The Boys hit the stage again at 11:35 and partied till around 1:00 AM.

"When Hot Lix finished, at one point, I'm playing and look up and there is the lead singer and some of the guys from Hot Lix partying in our room! It was AWESOME." said Robert.

Elizabeth Mann, lead singer for E & The boys (And the "E" in E & The Boys) added, "We saw quite a few folks that we usually see at our shows, but the place was PACKED. So I'm positive this was the first time for a lot of people to see us play. They picked a good night to come out. All I know is, we had a blast & the crowd seemed to as well. The room was still crowded when we finished."

E is right. The crowd did stay till the end and seemed to want more, but laws being what they are in Fayetteville, the party had to come to an end.

Hot Lix "KILLED." Robert said "These guys know how to put on a show. I mean, if you weren't paying attention, you would think you were back in 1987. I am REALLY grateful to those guys for having us. It seems we have more fun when we play a show with them than we probably should".

E & The Boys are currently working on more new songs for upcoming shows. Right now the schedule has them playing Shirley's in Springdale Saturday February 21. That show starts at 9:00.

Till next time.....

PARTY ON DUDE!

E & The Boys to Play

Georges Majestic

1/10/15

 

12/12/14

Fayetteville, AR - Announced today, E & The Boys will be playing the front room (AKA The Lounge) at George's Majestic as the Special Guest of "Hot Lix".

"Hot Lix" is an 80's Hair Metal Tribute Band. Playing 80's nig hair hits from bands like Poison, Whitesnake, and Motley Crue to name a few.

"E & The Boys" Manager & Lead Guitarist Robert Mann said, "I was contacted about this show last week. When it became official we were like YEA! We were estatic! We played the front room for them last year and had a blast! That was a last minute deal, this one we have more time to promote it.

When asked about "Hot Lix" Robert said "I really like them a lot. They are very nice guys and put on one hell of a show. To me this is a natural fit. They are straight on Hair Metal, while we're more say.... Pop for lack of a better word. They're all about Ratt, Poison & stuff and we're more Journey, Pat Benatar & Huey Lewis. Don't misunderstand me. We play some hair metal too. It's just not our core thing. E does a wonderful job on the women of the 80's & most all of the guys. You know, they all sang in really high ranges which makes it nice for us. E can hit those notes."

"E & The Boys" are scheduled to hit the stage around 8:30. "Hot Lix" will start tearing up the main stage between 9:45 & 10:00. They play for an hour & fourty five minutes then it's back to the front for "E & The Boys" till 1.

The show is an 18 & up show and the cover is $10.00.

Georges Majestic Lounge openned in 1927 and has set the standard for Live Entertainment in the Northwest Arkansas region ever since.

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.

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!

E & The Boys

Ready Friday's Show

and Booking Even More!

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.
