Da Manager

Da Manager is a powerhouse four-piece rock band that's causing quite a stir on the music scene after winning the 2023 BluesFest Busking Grommets Competition. Despite their youthful ages these talented teenagers are making waves with their electrifying performances and raw sound. Hailing from the picturesque coastal region of Northern New South Wales on Bundjalung country, Da Manager is made up of Banjo Golder on vocals and guitar, Arlo Kirk on lead guitar, Phoenix Preston on bass and Cruz Kill on drums. Drawing inspiration from iconic Australian bands like Grinspoon, Wolfmother, and early Silverchair, Da Manager has managed to capture the essence of the '90s grunge and alternative rock era while infusing it with their own youthful energy. Da Manager's sound is a perfect blend of aggressive riffs, thundering drums, and soulful lyrics. Their songs resonate with a sense of rebellion and youthful exuberance, making them a magnet for fans both young and old. In 2023 Da Manger released their first EP Prequel onto all streaming platforms and recently recorded their newest single “Max 20” with Grammy and Aria award winning producer Nick DiDia at his Brooklet Recording Studio.
