ApX keyboardist Rich Mannion is the cover boy on our latest single, and it's only fitting; he played the lion's share of the music on both of the songs, and he played it right well. Rich was also in the studio with Jimmy and J. this week, recording backing vocals for a song on our next single, on which he also plays keyboards. But that's not all:
On April 27, another band Rich plays in, Bobby Thompson and The Groove, won the Western Pennsylvania Blues Society Blues Challenge. As a result, they'll get to perform at this year's Pittsburgh Blues and Roots Festival as well as represent Western Pennsylvania in the 2020 International Blues Challenge in Memphis TN.
By scoring top marks in the band competition, the group also won $1000 in cash and $500 in studio time from the Music Garden studio in New Brighton PA. Judges also bestowed Thompson an award as the evening's top guitarist.
Congratulations, Rich, Bobby, and the rest of the band!
