Rob Mancini first made his mark on the European Hard Rock scene with the German bands Hotwire and Crush in the late nineties. Moving to Ireland in the early part of the twenty-first century he turned his interests to production, while still keeping his live chops up – and his face in front of the crowd – playing an average of seventy shows a year.
At the end of 2011, Rob Mancini released the critically acclaimed and well received solo album Rock N Roll Circus, and in 2012 the charity single, ‘United We Stand’, featuring singer/songwriter John Pratt. In 2013, Mancini recorded and co-produced David J. Caron’s 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 lead singer. Working with Alex Santos for the first time, Mancini recorded Scar For Life’s fourth album Worlds Entwined, which also featured guest musician and former Black Sabbath/Dio drummer, Vinny Appice.
In August 2015, Rob Mancini announced his intention to take a break from the band due to his excessive production schedule, and in November 2015, Mancini and Irish blues guitarist Davy Kerrigan formed Boneyard Dog, an Irish Classic/Blues rock band. Combining harmonies, killer riffs and solos, as well as creative lyrics, Boneyard Dog recorded their debut album, Bluesbound Train, which was produced, mixed and mastered by Rob Mancini. In August 2017, Mancini announced his intention to join Alex Santo’s heavy rock collaboration, Stagma, as the band’s front man and lead singer, and at the same time confirmed that he will be reuniting with Scar For Life to record the band’s fifth studio album.
