band managers generally..... manage the band, anything that you really think encompasses managing a band, usually....
1) getting and booking gigs
2) ditto on recording studios
3) label contacts
4) financial record keeping etc (which is why everybody in the band needs to keeps tabs on the mgr, get records of every penny you get paid for ANYTHING and make sure it's someone you know without a doubt would rip you off, money makes people do crazy things)

i think band managers are often confused with agents...

agents are the ones that often the ones that book your gigs and such....

managers more focus on record studios and the record labels..n the legal side of things....getting the most benificial contracts etc...

its pretty hazy i think...but a manger should have a good connection with the band, and be able to sort out alot of the bands psycological problems...disagreements, any ego problems etc...
