Frank Manzi

Frank Manzi has been plugging away for 3 decades in Western Massachusetts, quietly making a succession of great albums. Manzi is a passionate singer and writer, straight out of the Springsteen/Mellencamp school of rock. Manzi does not stop. He enjoys the whole process. “I am in my best spirits when I can create a song from beginning to end, then move to recording, then to performance, plus I get to do it with some of my best friends… It’s a beautiful journey!!” Manzi is excited and honored to help kick off (with his band) the Springfield Jazz & Roots Festival in his hometown on Friday July 21st, directly in front of a refurbished mural in Stearns Square, where his former bandmates recorded a video that won the MTV Basement tapes in 1986. You can check out Frank Manzi’s 7 recordings on YouTube, Spotify, and iTunes.
