Basically a multi-instrumentalist (piano/accordion/guitar), Zeke was mainly well known to West Coast (USA) audiences of the 1930s. He led his own orchestra, The Beverly Hill Billies, a group that included Stuart Hamblen and Elton Britt. It was the West Coast's first 'hillbilly' band. Interestingly, in later years, actor Buddy Ebsen had a very popular TV show entitled "The Beverly Hillbillies". Whether by accident or design, the two men became friends, and even composed a group of songs together.

Manners is an inductee of the Radio and Television Hall of Fame.

One of his compositions, the "Pennsylvania Polka", was a national hit, and working with Buddy Ebsen, he composed such other tunes as:
"Lahaina", Co-composed with Buddy Ebsen.
"The "Cue" music for the Carol Burnett show. Co-composed with Buddy Ebsen.
"Peach Pickin' Time", Co-composed with Buddy Ebsen
"The Turkey Trot", Co-composed with Zeke Buddy Ebsen
"Piece of the Past", Co-composed with Buddy Ebsen
