Pat Mcmanus Band
Dark Emerald Highway is the fourth album from former Mamas Boys guitarist/songwriter, Pat McManus. His most personal and introspective album to date. Recorded around the time his father passed away, this is not a mournful collection of songs, rather a collection of tracks that positively reflect on life, family, and the world around. Still holding true to his Celtic roots, and mixed with his own distinctive style of Blues Rock, it is easy to see just why Pat was nicknamed "The Professor" when he was just a boy starting out. Indeed, with the sad and untimely passing of Rory Gallagher, and then Gary Moore, Pat McManus can lay claim to the title of "The last of the truly great Irish blues rock Guitarists".
The Pat McManus Band also perform a selection of the Classic Mamas Boys hits, including Runaway Dreams, Gentleman Rogues, and the classic, Needle In The Groove.
