Thank You, Harlow's

This past Friday's show was a big deal for us. Not only did we perform for a lot of people who had never heard of the Live Manikins, but nearly our entire set consisted of brand new songs that will appear on our upcoming album—a few of which had never even been heard by anyone outside of our group before that day.

Fortunately, because of an awesome crowd, a great venue, and fantastic people with whom we shared the stage, it turned out to be an amazing night. The Royal Jelly and HANS! and the Hot Mess are both fantastic bands and we're grateful that they had the foresight to see that our groups would make for an entertaining night of eclectic music. Hopefully it won't be the last time we work together.

Huge thanks to Andrew Lozano from Freqy Music Group for making sure our music sounded extra crispy and Mike Mitchell for showing off his vocals on stage for one of our new songs. Most of all, thanks to all of you who came out, especially those who have been with us for years and the new listeners who were exposed to us for the first time.

Next up is our Nooner Show at Sac State on March 30th. If you're free that day or walking around campus, we welcome you to check out us. Until then, keep it live.

"The Moment" Self's debut coming out titled "The Birth"

On September 7th, 2013 Self will be having his debut album release, birthday celebration, and going away from Sacramento event. He is shooting for a dream and we are all gathering to show support and rock. It will be at Harlows located in Sacramento, California. Premier location and it this event he will be sharing the stage with some great acts.

Adrian Alan
After developing his sound in New York City & New Orleans, Adrian Alan is now based out of Los Angeles. His style is best defined as a concoction of rhythm, blues and funk saturated with soul. Adrian’s versatility has been in demand for both local and international touring acts such as Big Sam's Funky Nation & Panic! at the Disco. His musical influences run the gamut from Donny Hathaway, Stevie Wonder and Bill Withers. Adrian’s style resonates from all of these legends with his own version of soul that is romantic and heart-poured in shameless rhyme. Adrian teamed up with producer Scotty Hard (Wutang, MMW, Boogie Down Productions) to record original songs arranged on his self-titled EP “The Adrian Hibbs Project" and is currently mixing and about to release a self titled LP under Adrian Alan.
Check out his video titled "Like no other"
Like no other

Kasi Jones
From Seattle who currently resides in Los Angeles, she has graced television screens as a finalist on NBC’s hit show The Voice, and shared the stage with some of the greatest musicians of our time, including backing rock n roll legend Roger Daltry at the world famous Hollywood Bowl, and opening for Grammy award winner Robin Thicke. Then there are her current projects, Broadway bound musical The Boy from New York City, and the release of her all original debut EP Beautiful Liar.
