A brilliant band, they really knew how to match the mood of the audience and then build the energy up ensuring everyone had a great night. Can't wait to see them again!

I attended a gig that Manouche Ganoush were playing as a punter. It was just the level I was looking for that evening and honestly was one of the best live music nights I've been to in a while, I was still thinking about it a couple of days later! Also their version of Rasputin was just inspired!

Can I pick the songs you play from the set list?

We've crafted our set lists to ensure the music runs smoothly and both you and your guests have the most amazing time.
