Manfred Mann, aka The Manfreds as they sang in their first hit song 5-4-3-2-1 it’s the Manfreds, were considered one of the finest and most respected British Invasion groups of the 1960s.
Over the decade until they broke up to pursue successful solo careers, with Paul Jones until 1966 then Mike D’Abo as lead singers, the band had four No. 1s and a string of Top 10 singles, all enduringly memorable and including 5-4-3-2-1, Do Wah Diddy Diddy, Pretty Flamingo, My Name Is Jack, Fox On The Run, Mighty Quinn, Just Like A Woman, Ragamuffin Man, Semi-Detached Suburban Mr James, and Ha Ha Said The Clown. The other original members were Tom McGuinness (guitar), Mike Hugg (drums and keyboards), and Mann (keyboards).
The band reformed as The Manfreds in 1991 featuring both original lead singers, Jones and D’Abo, plus McGuinness and Hugg, and enlisting the talents of Marcus Cliff (bass), Simon Currie (saxophone) and Rob Townsend (drums), but no longer with keyboardist Manfred. They have been touring the world since then, playing the band’s hits and those from their solo careers.
The Manfreds are not a tribute band but, with the exception of Mann, the real thing, now even better than before with both charismatic lead singers at the helm. Their music has always been hugely popular in New Zealand. They were here some 15 years ago with a timely reminder and are now returning in on an 11-date farewell tour delivering all their much loved hits.
