Introduction: Fully Vaccinated as of 5/5/2021 We focus on interpreting modern pop, rock and adult contemporary music into an acoustic form as well as provide quirky comic music for private parties and ceremonies. I enjoy performing music that people care about. Our goal is to help create the atmosphere of the event while being sensitive not to overpower it in terms of volume. Finding the right balance is a priority. Be sure to check out the sample videos in the photos and video section below: 1. Instrumental (acoustic guitar and violin) 2. Manny and Lisa 3.

Wow!! I don't think there is enough room to write all the great things about Manny Petty. I will start with the beginning: Immediate responses to inquiries which made organizing and finalizing the process seamless. So extremely professional with continuous communication. Arrived right on time. So extremely personable, yet remaining very professional. Was always mindful of the dynamics of the party so as to not be too loud. But, of course the highlight of the evening was his amazing voice and music that delighted every single guest at my backyard party (about 35). I had a wide demographic from teens, to younger adults to middle aged crowd and there was music for all tastes, as well as music that transcended the generational gap. My guests were humming along, singing and eventually dancing the evening away. The energy was palpable and the music permeated the air. I know that one of the key reasons why my party was such a great success, was because of the phenomenal music provided by Manny Petty. I had so many guests come up to me and comment on how wonderful the music had been. My only regret, not hiring him for a longer period time! I offer one recommendation: hire him ASAP, before somebody else does.

Thanks so much Zulima. Your friends and family were so fantastic and, may I say, amazing dancers! I had such a great time performing for you all and you made it very easy!

Manny performed at my dad’s 60th birthday party and was absolutely wonderful!! He made it such a special evening and elevated our backyard celebration. From the beginning he was extremely responsive which was greatly appreciated given the last minute nature of my inquiry! :) Manny arrived 20 minutes early to set up and was a pleasure to talk to. His music and vocals were a hit and everyone wanted to know how they could book him for their parties. He performed 70s and 80s hits that were perfect for the crowd and even helped us sing happy birthday at the end. We can’t wait to have Manny back for another party!

Manny Petty and the Heart Makers have been a hit at our 55+ Active Adult Community. Our residents look forward to entertainment and special events. We have had Manny Petty at our community 3 times now, and plan to maintain this relationship. Manny and his team are very responsive and have a great understanding of our community and our event structure. They are engaging with our residents and pick a wide variety of songs to cover that would be appealing to them. Manny, Lisa and Nick are extremely talented and their music is fun for all ages. They are very easy to work with in the planning stages. Looking forward to more concerts! Thank you for your wonderful shows!

We had Manny play at our double graduation party last night. He arrived early to set up and started playing ahead of schedule. Manny was absolutely amazing. He has a great voice and can really work that guitar. He has a great playlist and even took requests. My guests absolutely loved him. He played for three hours and I had people asking if he could stay longer. Offering to pay Manny themselves! Lol! I may need to have more backyard parties just to have Manny perform. I highly recommend him! Do not think twice about booking Manny for your next event. You won’t be disappointed.

Details: General event / party • 51 - 75 guests • 18 - 30 years old • 31 - 50 years old • 51 or older • Guitar • Pop / top 40 • Outdoors

I had such blast playing your backyard graduation party. Loved that people were dancing and singing along and they requested songs I’d forgotten I even knew. It was an absolute pleasure!

I can’t say enough about Manny. My dad had been stuck in the hospital on his birthday following less than ideal news. Manny performed a mini concert for us in his hospital room for my family. We were able to jam to well-performed oldies together. Most importantly, I have another special memory with my dad. Thank you.

Jenna, it was absolutely my pleasure. Your family is so lovely and it was such an honor to perform for y’all especially given the circumstances. Thanks again for having me.

    The first priority is to focus in on what the customer is looking for. We like to ascertain their likes and dislikes and will create a custom playlist that matches the vibe of the event. We can also learn new material if it’s requested specifically by the client.
