The Manfreds Jazz & Blues
British pop group The Manfreds will return to The Courtyard this May.
They are considered one of the finest and most respected bands from the 1960’s era and 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.
As a result, their records have a timeless quality and, 60 years on, 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 ‘60’s, and still the biggest audience pleaser at their concerts, 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/ flute.
The Manfreds will be in The Courtyard’s Main House on Thursday 4 May at 7.30pm. To book tickets, or for more information contact the Box Office on 01432 340555 or visit www.courtyard.org.uk.
