About Dan Manjovi
New York, NY
Dan Manjovi is a New York City favorite, continually expanding his growing fan base in New York and beyond.

Dan and his band regularly appear to packed houses at New York's major music rooms including Canal Room, The Cutting Room and The Bitter End among others. Manjovi also regularly performs intimate solo shows at the Lower East Side's famed Sidewalk Café.
