The New York Times called Willie Nile ?one of the most gifted singer-songwriters to emerge from the New York scene in years.? His album Streets Of New York was hailed as ?a platter for the ages? by UNCUT magazine. Rolling Stone listed The Innocent Ones as one of the ?Top Ten Best Under-The-Radar Albums of 2011? and BBC Radio called it ?THE rock ?n? roll album of the year.?

Bono, Bruce Springsteen, Pete Townshend, Lou Reed, Lucinda Williams, Jim Jarmusch, and Little Steven are among those who have sung his praises. His album, American Ride, won ?Best Rock Album of the Year? at the Independent Music Awards. It appeared on over one hundred year-end Top Ten lists for 2013 and Bono called it, ?One of the great guides to unraveling the mystery that is the troubled beauty of America.?

In November 2014 he released an album of piano-based songs, If I Was A River, to universal critical acclaim. ?One of the most brilliant singer-songwriters of the past thirty years? said The New Yorker. No Depression raved ?Willie Nile?s artistic renaissance continues unabated.?

His 2016 album World War Willie appeared on numerous year end top ten lists as did hid his live shows. As American Songwriter said "Nile cranks up the volume and tears into these tunes with the same hunger, passion and exuberance he displays in his legendary sweat-soaked shows." World War Willie was voted ?Album Of The Year? by Twangville Magazine and the song Forever Wild was named ?Coolest Song In The World? by Little Steven?s Underground Garage.

Willie has toured across the U.S. with The Who and has sung with Bruce Springsteen and The E Street Band. As the induction program from the Buffalo Music Hall of Fame says: ?His live performances are legendary.? In the summer of 2017 Willie Nile released his 11th studio album Positively Bob ? Willie Nile Sings Bob Dylan to rave reviews. He is currently bringing his electrifying live show to audiences worldwide.

+ Manchurians

The Manchurians formed in 1999, carving a solid, rhythm and blues based sound around the songwriting of Roger Reale. In 1978 Reale released the LP, RadioActive (Big Sound/London), a pop underground gem. Since that time Reale has written for, among others, Buddy Guy; BB King; Johnny Winter; Freddie Scott; and the heir apparent to Albert King, Michael Burks. In addition, Reale also recorded an unreleased LP with the late Mick Ronson. The twice Grammy nominated, and WC Handy award nominated songwriter joined forces with ex-Scratch Band (GE Smith, Mickey Curry, Christine Ohlman) harmonica/vocalist Bob Orsi; guitarist/arranger Dean Falcone, who has worked with Jon Brion, Brian May (Queen), Aimee Mann, Bun E Carlos ( Cheap Trick), Jon Auer (Posies, Big Star), Joey Molland (Badfinger); and dynamic drummer Mat Reale (ex-BASE2) to produce, to date, four CD's under The Manchurians' banner. Past members have included: guitarist extraordinaire Mike Roth; and the legendary Hilton Valentine (The Animals). Today, they continue to bring R&B to the masses in their own unique, and inimitable style. Their live shows are characteristically intense and passionate; not to be missed.
