One year ago to the day, ‘Foothill Freeway’ was released. A lot has changed since then. To celebrate, ‘Alive in Patchogue’ is now available as a name-your-price download via Bandcamp! It is also streaming over at No Depression. This show was a ton of fun, I hope you enjoy these recordings! Thanks to the musicians, audience and the PTPA staff for making this release possible.
“Pete Mancini’s first solo outing, Foothill Freeway, rightly garnered praise from the likes of NPR. The album is a contemplative piece, but Mancini shines live. Whether he’s fronting his own band or playing bass with New York blues-rockers Leland Sundries, it’s clear that Mancini is here to serve the music — not the other way around. His lyrics are powerful stories about life on the margins and his soft touch gives the songs an an important sense of humanity.”
