Who is NC3?

Dawn Manning

Once a cheerleader, always a Cheer Leader!


Front and Center and ALWAYS full of energy;  She's simply UNSTOPPABLE.  Dawn has been singing since childhood and has devoted her entire performing career of 25 years to the NO CLUE ranks.  Not afraid of trying and mastering various artists, she can go from Katy Perry to Janis Joplin to Steve Perry and back again.  Dawn can DO IT ALL and does it with a charisma that would warrant pom-poms.

Richard Manning

He's a lefty, but that's alright!

Having played in a regionally recognized band in the 80's, Richard knows the hard work, dedication and chops it takes to keep a band going and NO CLUE's 25 years together is proof.  Influences by various genres and artists are evident in his unique playing style... he likes it bright with a bounce. 

"Dr Bob" Sudol

The Doctor is in!

They call him the “Funky Doctor” because his favorite style is Funk, and well... he’s a retired doctor, now dedicating his time entirely to music.  Bob’s been playing bass - living on the B string of a 5-string bass - and singing for decades.  His on stage energy gets everyone in the house movin’ and groovin’!
