Mike Boldt and Phil Gallo


The group Dez Manku is the creation of Boldt and Gallo. Their first musical endeavor goes back to 1998 when they both worked on the music score for the film West New York, directed by Phil Gallo. That feature starred Frank Vincent and Vincent Pastore, veteran actors from Martin Scorcese’s Goodfellas and The Sopranos. Boldt and Gallo connected musically again in 2005 for the score of Mattie Fresno and the Holoflux Universe. Throughout both projects they kept discussing writing and performing together in a non-film genre.

   

Shortly after Mattie, they decided to finally begin composing, then recording a collection of songs.

The recording, tentatively titled The Mike Phil Project, began to take shape. After about seven months of work, the album was completed. They decided to name the group Dez Manku and the collection became “Fear and Love.” They have released three more albums since then, Welcome to the Big Time, A Real World of Make Believe and Lords of the Zone.
