Violinist Pat Mangan is from Brooklyn, NY, where he grew up immersed in a wide array of music ranging from classical, to hip hop, to indie rock, to Irish. These broad influences can be heard in his playing. A virtuoso improviser and performer, Pat made his Broadway debut at the age of 16 with "Riverdance on Broadway," and went on to tour the world with the show, playing to enthralled audiences in some of the most prestigious venues in over 30 countries on every continent. Locally, he has performed at venues ranging from NYC's top concert halls such as Radio City Music Hall and Lincoln Center, to elite private gigs at the Rainbow Room and the One World Trade Center Observatory, to thumping nightclubs including Marquee, the Copacabana Times Square, and Brooklyn's own Analog. Pat has been featured on NBC, PBS, in the NYTimes and many other national publications. His recording credits include Phillip Phillips' platinum debut album "The World From the Side of the Moon," Chromeo's "White Women" and many independent projects, including two solo albums. Currently, he performs in the Broadway smash hit "Come From Away," in addition to many renowned jam sessions around the city. Pat has also always had a keen interest in dance music and club culture - so rocking the electric violin alongside some of NYC's top DJ's like the FunktionDJ crew is always a natural fit.
