The Manfreds Featuring Paul Jones
Friday 13th April 2018
We are delighted to welcome The Manfreds to The Garden Rooms!
For the uninitiated; in the beginning was Manfred Mann, a band whose hit catalogue is the envy of many; 5-4-3-2-1, Pretty Flamingo, Mighty Quinn, Do Wah Diddy Diddy, and Just Like a Woman are just a few of their many hits.
Part-way through the string of hits the band survived the departure of their singer and front-man Paul Jones. His replacement, Mike D’Abo, kept the momentum going but eventually the band – who had veered away from their original R ’n’ B and Jazz leanings into the world of commercial pop – broke up.
The members of the band each enjoyed solo success but, in 1991, the band reformed (without Manfred Mann – who was the bands’ keyboard player) for guitarist Tom McGuinness’ 50th birthday. They enjoyed it so much that they have continued touring to this day.
Original members Paul Jones (vocals and harmonica), Tom McGuinness (guitars) and Mike Hugg (keyboards) are joined onstage by stalwarts Marcus Cliffe (bass), Simon Currie (flute and sax) and Rob Townsend (drums).
