Boneyard Dog singer Rob Mancini first made his mark on the European Hard Rock scene involving the German bands Hotwire and Crush. Moving to Ireland in the early part of the 21st Century he turned his interests to production while still keeping his live chops up – and his face in people’s faces – playing an average of 70 shows a year.
The end of 2011 saw Mancini release the critically acclaimed and well received “Rock N Roll Circus”, drawing accolades from sources such as May The Rock Be With You (“If you’re up for an album full of rock then buy a ticket to this circus”), Paradise Rock (“Verdict 9/10, go buy this album”), Metal Shock (“AOR Anthology – a masterpiece”) and Hardrock Haven (“Clearly deserves the backing of a leading label”), amongst others and 2012 brought the charity single, “United We Stand”, featuring singer / songwriter John Pratt, best known in melodic hard rock circles as the front man for AOR Super group “Firefly” in the late 90’s.
In 2013, Mancini recorded and co-produced David J. Carons Album “Thru ever ending black”, produced and co-wrote US Band
Karson’s debut album “Just in time” and joined Portuguese Metal Band “Scar For Life” as their new singer for their fourth album “Worlds
Entwined” in August 2014 including guest musician and former Black Sabbath / Dio drummer Vinnie Appice. The band performed alongside bands like Destruction, Black Label Society, Overkill and Within Temptation.
In August 2015, Mancini announced his departure from the band due to his excessive 2016 production schedule.
In November 2015, Mancini and Irish blues guitarist Davy Kerrigan started their new band Boneyard Dog and are currently working on their debut album with Ex-Foreigner/Cher drummer Ron Wikso and special guests Marc Lynn (Gotthard) & Tony Carey (Rainbow)
