About Amanda (Road Manager)

Hi! I’m Amanda, road manager for SuRa FoMa. I’m handling all the arrangements in advance, during, and after the tour, so the members of the band can focus on their performance. I’m coordinating all the logistics, so if you need something, just let me know! When I’m not on the road, I’m hosting an underground supper club called Chow Club Atlanta. Each month we feature a different emerging chef from a culture that is underrepresented in the Atlanta food scene. In the past two years, we’ve featured 23 cuisines from Antigua to Senegal and from Bulgaria to Laos! I’m also a coach for Pecha Kucha Atlanta where presenters have 20 slides and 20 seconds per slide to present on a topic of their choosing.
