Syria T. Berry was born in San Francisco and has lived in the Bay Area all of his life.

He sang his first solo at the age of three at Bethlehem Missionary Baptist church in Richmond.When his parents bought a home in a different neighborhood, he began attending Easter Hill Methodist church where he sang in the choir.The choir director took a special interest in Syria and encouraged his parents to give him vocal lessons which, due to the expense, his parents were unable to provide.At this point the director volunteered to give Syria lessons if he would come early before choir rehearsal.He continued studying with her until she left the church.

During his teen years, Syria was the president of his church youth group, the Methodist Youth Fellowship (MYF). At 16 he formed his first band which he named "Moses and the Chosen Few." He entered college as a music major specializing in voice and carried a physical education minor but left school to seek his fortune when he answered an ad and became the lead singer in a working band, QUAZAR.

In 2004 he began studies at Golden Gate Baptist Seminary, and in spring of 2007, he received a diploma in Praise and Worship from Beacon University Institute of Ministry.

Syria has two children, Phillip and Eden,. And three grandchildren;Nathan, Jordan, and Takaji. He retired from NADY Systems in 2011, and works full time as a minister and musician.

Live Entertainment Thursday Nights at Mankas Steakhouse - Tom Duarte TONIGHT

Duarte’s musical style is firmly based in traditional Latin music, while referencing elements of funk and jazz fusion.

Duarte is a multi-style guitarist who leans heavily in the Latin direction but has performed in almost every genre imaginable. Also playing electric guitar, he toured extensively with Jerry Garcia keyboardist Merl Saunders, sharing the stage with the likes of Ray Charles, B.B King, Bonnie Raitt, Bob Weir, and Los Lobos. He has played abroad in England, Canada and Brazil, as well as having toured the US several times. He has recorded four CDs of Latin and contemporary music under his own name, in addition to his long history as a studio musician that includes a feature song on Santana and Journey co-founder and keyboardist/vocalist Gregg Rolie’s CD “Roots”. His work can also be heard on several diversified and eclectic recording projects by local Bay Area independent artists. Tom performs regularly both as a solo guitarist and with his Latin trio as well as with several Bay Area based bands. His playing remains beautiful and communicative throughout, reflecting a true sense of the gypsy spirit. In his solo acoustic playing, as well as in his searing electric solos, he plays with a passion that equally captivates the listener.

The youngest of seven children, Duarte was exposed to a broad range of musical styles, including rock, folk, and big band jazz. In grade school, his Spanish teacher would often stay after class to sing Flamenco music, accompanying herself on the guitar. This was a major influence in Duarte’s development.

Duarte began playing guitar at age 12, becoming lead guitarist in a rock band within four months. His innovation and curiosity led him to classical music and jazz during high school, and he continued playing acoustic styles as therapy from the rock bands. After leaving school, Duarte began to work professionally, playing R&B, funk, and other styles, touring and playing session dates. As he gravitated towards Latin music in the ‘80s, it soon became his main focus. He lived in England for a while, gigging there and throughout Europe.

Robert “Hollywood” Jenkins has been well known as a prolific San Francisco Bay area, Guitarist, Vocalist and band leader for several years. Hollywood first became interested in music when he was sixteen years old, growing up in Bartlesville, Ok. He would sneak into the local Twenty Gents night club and watch a band called Ronnie and the Miracles play blues. At that time, as he watched the band’s performance, Hollywood thought that playing in a band was the coolest thing that you could ever do. He received even more inspiration to be a musician when he met James Brown’s guitar player (Jimmy Noland) at a Tulsa, Ok concert and later, Bobby Blue Bland at the Oil Capital showroom…
