The Petrie Terrace based National Entertainment Service Company, The Pushworth Group, has contributed to the careers of thousands of Australian artists over the past 30 years.

Some of Manny’s pet projects over the past couple of decades have included The Butterfly Effect, Savage Garden, Fiona Horne and DEFFX, Grinspoon, Russell Crowe’s musical projects, Killing Heidi, Grace Knight and Eurogliders, The Living End & GANGgajang, – to name just a few and you begin to get an idea of the calibre of artists that Manny has worked with.
