Maninblack is a band based in New York City performing original Punk music blended with UK Punk and Pop Reggae styles, a modern electronic edge and a subtly dark Cyberpunk image. Maninblack's personnel lineup includes André Schlesinger on lead vocals, guitar/synthesizer and keyboards; RJ Demler on bass guitar and backing vocals; Renzo Ortega on keyboards, samples and backing vocals; Andrew Falk on lead guitar and backing vocals and Brian Blainey on drums and electronic percussion. Initially established in 2001 as an experimental project Maninblack has, along with a few misfired debut attempts, released tracks on various compilations and tribute albums. Maninblack is represented locally by André Schlesinger in Manhattan and internationally by Garry Bushell Enterprises, LTD. London:

Maturity and reliability are important aspects of Maninblack as performing artists and they pride themselves on their professionalism. The band is supportive of publicity efforts and takes a concerted interest in the promotion of individual performances. Maninblack offers an exciting musical and visual experience that is reminiscent of the UK Punk phenomena of 1977, yet innovative and unconventional even by current Punk standards, in their unique style which they view as a logical evolution of the Punk music genre.
