The Manfreds

The Manfreds

Main Space

Fri 12 May


60 years of hits, jazz and blues.

Returning to Cast as part of their 60th Anniversary celebrations, The Manfreds are considered one of the finest and most respected bands from the 1960s era.
Their numerous hits were not just ‘pop’ songs; many were R&B based with an undercurrent of jazz - a very unusual but winning combination of playing style and substance. The Manfreds, with original front man, Paul Jones, will be performing many of their hits, including Do Wah Diddy Diddy - one of the most popular and instantly recognisable songs of the ‘60s - along with a mix of jazz and blues covers and tracks from their individual solo albums.
Paul Jones, with his unique harmonica sound, will be joined by Tom McGuinness on guitar, Rob Townsend on drums, Mike Gorman on keyboards, Marcus Cliffe on bass, and Simon Currie on saxophone and flute.
