It was a long battle for the Manaklin Brothers.

They faced off against a bunch of other local bands at Orange County Choppers Cafe in Newburgh over the last couple of months. And after all the votes were counted the Manaklin Brothers were declared the winners of the Battle of the bands for this year.

After meeting these guys Al and the crew, I strongly suggest that you try and see them live at some point. Really talented guys.

If you missed them on the CJ in the morning show today, check out there performance of an original song, written by Al called "Memories"

Get all of there local appearance dates and updates on the band here.
