Key members of the 1960’s Manfred Mann line-up re-formed as The Manfreds in 1991 following what turned out to be a very successful and enjoyable reunion for Tom McGuinness’ 50th birthday celebration.
Original Manfred Mann members Paul Jones, Mike Hugg and Tom McGuinness , and former member Mike d’Abo, are joined by Rob Townsend, formerly of Family, on drums, Marcus Cliffe on bass and Simon Currie on saxophone & flute, as the exciting new line-up of The Manfreds.
Nowadays, Mike d’Abo, with his blessing, does not appear on all The Manfreds tours. This line up featuring Paul Jones, Tom McGuinness, Mike Hugg, plus Rob Townsend, Marcus Cliffe & Simon Currie, are becoming well known for their show of ‘Hits, Jazz & Blues’. A wonderful mix of Manfred Mann hits along with some solo material from all involved and a few surprises along the way too!
The highly acclaimed ‘Maximum Rhythm ‘n’ Blues’ Tours, which generally take place in the latter part of every other year, see the return of Mike d’Abo sharing the lead with Paul Jones, along with one or two special guests. This special guest in 2018 was so special that they would love to welcome him back in 2020….of course, this was the wonderful Georgie Fame.
