The Fanatics started in 1993 and performed through 1998. The Fanatics played good time oldies classics all around the northwest.  Many of the songs in the set included northwest classics like Boss Hoss and Grannys Pad.  Private party's, car shows,clubs and weddings with a wide audience range were the main venue.

The Fanatics were quite pampered wherever we played. It was manned by Jamie Mann who booked , did sound, played lead guitar and sang lead vocals.  He did take 50% of the earnings , but well deserved.  He kept the band working at least 80% of the year.  This has been the most profesional band I've ever worked with.Everyone loved us except the booking agents, since Jamie was a natural competitor.

The most charmed band besides the Beatnicks.  Probably because we had our own Swami. We really rocked!

Some of the venues where The Fanatics performed were:  The Rocker Bar and Grill - Bothell, Waldo's - Redmond, Microsoft Private Parties, Sparky's - Seattle, and Doc Maynard's - Seattle.
