    The Manfreds

    Saturday 30 March 2019


    Manfred Mann, aka The Manfreds were one of the finest, most respected British Invasion groups of the 1960’s. Before breaking up in 1969, with Paul Jones until 1966 then Mike D’Abo as lead singers, the band had a string of huge hits, all enduringly memorable songs, including 5-4-3-2-1Do Wah DiddyPretty Flamingo, and Ha Said The Clown.

    The other original members were Tom McGuinness (guitar), Mike Hugg (drums) and Mann (keyboards). As The Manfreds, the original band reformed in 1991 with both charismatic lead singers, Jones and D’Abo, at the helm plus McGuinness and Hugg, but not Manfred.

    The Manfreds return to New Zealand in 2019 to perform all their much loved hits one last time by the original singers.
