The Manfreds

The Manfreds are a British pop group, formed in 1991 as a celebration of guitarist Tom McGuinness’s 50th birthday. They have been performing live ever since, showcasing their vast catalogue of Manfred Mann hits and well-known solo material.

The Manfreds feature original Manfred Mann founding members Paul Jones, Mike Hugg and Tom McGuinness, and former member Mike d’Abo, who replaced Jones in 1966. They are joined by Rob Townsend, formerly of Family, on drums, Marcus Cliffe on bass and Simon Currie on saxophone and flute. They have a natural charisma, sharp wit and musical versatility that keeps audiences captivated and entertained.

The Manfreds’ show at The Anvil is called Maximum Rhythm ‘n’ Blues, and it will feature some of their classic songs, such as Do Wah Diddy Diddy, Pretty Flamingo, Mighty Quinn, Ha Ha Said The Clown, and many more. You will also hear some of their solo hits, such as Handbags and Gladrags by Mike d’Abo, and Come Tomorrow by Paul Jones. You will also enjoy some surprises along the way too!
