Mano-Y-Mano has performed and opened for several national acts that have come to the city of Pittsburgh such as Beanie Siegel and Freeway (twice), AZ, Isis, Mr. Cheeks, Pretty Ricky, DJ Clue, Noreaga and Run D.M.C. right before the death of Jam Master Jay.
They have performed in over 40 local and regional performances with other local artist, including Pittsburgh's own CRAVE. You can also catch them on TV on the Pittsburgh local City Channel for a promotional video they did for a company called YOUTH WORKS.

Mano-Y-Mano makes up one of the most diverse groups that Pittsburgh has ever heard.
