Manifested Old friends and band mates Chris Mario and Michael Rabito went off on their respective musical ventures for about a decade. In the summer of 2012 they rode cosmic waves back together to integrate all they learned into a "progressive dance" power trio with esteemed drummer and percussionist Steve Slaughter. After being trained in Africa, Slaughter played with Mario in Up Beat Manifest/La Violencia and was featured in Rabito's band The Effective Dose. The boys found an incredibly synergistic dynamic between them that will continue to produce beautiful synergyzing music that frees your feet and your mind!
