“Destination” has been getting rave review world-wide:

Chris Manning is an exceptional guitarist and musician.” – Steve Mueller (Mesa/Boogie LTD)

Chris Manning is a talented guitarist with a unique style and approach. He is capable of playing his instrument with fluid movements, using his dynamic touch of picking technique and creative chord voicing. His playing excels in his compositions and takes the listener into the colorful ‘World of Manning’. Enjoy his music as he truly explores a full rainbow spectrum of color on this new release.” – Bruce Kulick (ex-Kiss/Grand Funk)

“Vocalist Chris Hodges’s vocals blew me away. The tone, control, and range of his voice are on par or better than many of the top male rock vocalists out there.” – The Examiner Magazine

Joining Manning & Hodges are UK session pro drummer Max Salidi and ace UK studio bassist Dan Hawkins who provide a top-flight rhythm section for Manning’s melodic guitar and Hodge’s intense, dynamic vocals. Special guests include legendary KISS guitarist Bruce Kulick, vocalist Chandler Mogel (Outloud, Punky Meadows (Angel), Pareidolia), bassist Rick Read (Herd of Instincts, David Gallegos, The Zeppelin Project), and songwriter Tim Beamguard (Highway 31).

As an artist with a wide-variety of musical tastes, Chris Manning’s music remains difficult to categorize. His versatile guitar style balances technique and melody appealing to fans of Alice in Chains, Led Zeppelin, George Lynch, Black Sabbath, Deep Purple, KISS, and King’s X. In addition to “Destination”, Manning has released four guitar-oriented albums spanning multiple genres and was featured in Guitar Player magazine (Dec 2008). He is also a founding member of The Zeppelin Project, one of the top Zeppelin tributes in Texas. Over the past 10 years Manning has traveled throughout Texas, Oklahoma, Arkansas, Louisiana, Kansas, and Missouri playing shows with The Zeppelin Project, The Hindenburg Project, and his original band and has shared stages with Drowning Pool, George Lynch and Lynch Mob, Michael Schenker, Yngwie Malmsteen, Dokken, Stephen Pearcy (Ratt), and Dangerous Toys.
