The Mangfather

Bob Katz

The New Album
Bursting out of the pandemic lockdown comes SIX CANS OF OLIVES, the new hip-hop/pop album by the inimitable THE MANGFATHER BOB KATZ. Mixing moods and genres in the way that only TMFBK can, working alone in his home studio, he offers raw, unvarnished truths that will make you laugh and cry, often at the same time.

“The classic “Caught In A Butt Sandwich” by The Mangfather Bob Katz, the best song.”

"Bob Katz makes people smile; he makes them feel good.  Bob Katz is really talented and really funny.  Excellent.  Great job!  Really entertaining and very different.  He was the most entertaining act of the night."
Mark "The Animal" Mendoza, Twisted Sister

“If you could swirl the clever lyricism of Cole with the sly cherubic humor of Harpo, and add a shmear of Judy’s showbiz pizzazz, you’d have a concoction akin to Bob Katz”. 
Pete Kennedy, The Kennedys


“It’s powerful stuff!”

"this tension between humor and bitterness characterizes the mangfather's MCing throughout the album. having come of age in new york alongside the various artforms of hip-hop, bob knows that hip-hop in all it's manifestations is 'folk music'. he also seems to really love mangos. he's rocking to the beat of his own drum machine, and i recommend you rock along."
