Since 2006, Manimalhouse has been bringing gritty, high energy funk and soul music to dance floors around the Pacific Northwest. Combining the sexy, powerful vocals of Reyna Mallare and Angie Fritz, fresh horn arrangements and non-stop energy, Manimalhouse turns every club into a house party.
Manimalhouse draws inspiration from every flavor of funky soul music. With a stew of covers and originals they combine their influences to create a party atmosphere that leaves everyone in the room feeling better than they have all week. They're like the mix tape you want to throw on at the party of the year just when things are starting to get a little out of control. Manimalhouse has had the pleasure of sharing the stage with The Rebirth Brass Band, Orgone, The Hot 8 Brass Band, Charles Neville, Charmaine Neville and Reggie Houston.
Manimalhouse features Reyna and Angie on vocals, Dan Lee on guitar, Jeff Tummond on bass, Ben Turner on keys, Jim Fisher on percussion, Mark Blanding on drums, and the powerhouse horn section of Chris Nakato on Trombone, Reid Neuman on saxophone and Wes Luttrell on trumpet and vocals.
