Manny Ward’s DJ career began 30 years ago while in the U.S. Air Force moonlighting as the resident DJ on the base where he was stationed. In 1989 he returned home to NYC and its thriving dance club scene. Manny shifted his career focus to the music industry and began attending audio engineering school. In 1991 Manny’s DJ career solidified when legendary house music DJ Frankie Knuckles discovered and began mentoring him. From 1992 through 1996, as Frankie’s protege, Manny opened for Frankie’s famed Friday night residency at “Sound Factory Bar”. A huge success, the club opened a second room and handed it over to Manny outright. Demand for Manny soared and he played the main rooms in other NYC clubs at “The Tunnel”, “The Palladium”, “Roxy’ and “Twilo” while working full time at NYC based record label and retail store “Eight Ball Records.”

Expanding outside of NYC, Manny has become an established world wide tour de force playing clubs accross the country, North America, Europe, and Asia.

Aside from DJing, Manny has also developed a solid reputation as talented producer in his own right. As an apprentice at the illustrious Quad Studio’s, NYC, he gained experience at recording sessions with Mariah Carey, Cee Cee Peniston and Joi Cardwell. He has productions and remixes on Eightball Records “SISTER SISTER, FMC PROJECT, and MR FANTASY”, NERVOUS RECORDS, “FRANKIE SAY’S” -A Tribute to Frankie Knuckles, “SYNTHETIC” by Roxy And The Ride Committee, and soon to be released RESILIENCE w/ DJ Gomi feat SANDY B. SOUNDGROOVE RECORDINGS – “LET ME SEE YOU (TEK’D OUT)”, “NO FICTION” and TWISTED RECORDS, “BIG MOUTH” w Midnight Society, and “CRASH TRIBE” just to name a few.
