“A very good guitarist with real blues feeling , lots of talent and a lot of good taste, a really good musician that can play blues and variations on blues in many styles with taste and credibility”
(Bruce Iglauer – Head of “Alligator Records” in Chicago)
Manny Fizzotti, one of the busiest artists on the London blues scene, graduated “with honours” at the Guitar Institute of Technology in Los Angeles, where he also played as a session guitarist at Shanghai Recording Studios working with Mike Carnevale (engineer for Eric Clapton, Greg Allman, Jeff Beck and Keith Richards) and performed at famous blues clubs such as Harvelle’s in Santa Monica.
Since moving to London in 2011 he performed at well known clubs such as the “Ronnie Scott’s Bar”, the “606 Club”, “The Bull’s Head”, the “12 Bar Club”, the “Troubador”, the “ Boom Boom Club”, “The Hideaway”, the “Ain’t Nothin’ But Blues Bar” and “The Eel Pie Club” and he had the pleasure of being invited to play with Giles Robson, the “John O’ Leary and Alan Glen All Stars”, the “Dennis Greaves Band”, “Nine Below Zero” and the great Chicago blues ambassador Billy Branch!
In his live performances Manny mixes up blues classics and his own blues compositions and, when he plays a dobro guitar with slide in real “Delta blues style”, he takes the listener back to the smoky atmosphere of the Mississippi juke-joints.
