MANTECA BEAT : “Cool Beats with a Little Grease”  

2007 Toronto Exclusive Magazine Award Winner:

Best International Blues Group; Best International Blues CD.

Manteca Beat has a sound which is both familiar and fresh. Led by Paul Klemperer’s soulful sax, the group explores the best in classic R&B, blues, Latin and more, with a cool jazzy edge. Paul also adds original songs to the recipe.


“This band is about having fun. We start with what audiences know and then take them someplace new.  When they go home they feel like they’ve really been somewhere.”

Drawing on 40 years of playing experience, Paul Klemperer delivers a great show full of energy and emotion.  His band of  skilled professionals is equally at home with festival stages, formal affairs, dance parties,and intimate concert settings.  Each performance brings the audience an infectious mix of beautiful vocals, great musicians, showmanship, and Paul’s masterful saxophone.

For bigger budget shows the Manteca Beat Cabaret is available, including dancers, horn section, and backup singers.
