Don't miss the chance to see the pioneers of British rhythm and blues band, Manfred Mann, and their lead vocalists perform in an intimate setting. Their numerous hits were R&B based with an undercurrent of jazz, and their records have a timeless quality. Original frontman Paul Jones and his replacement Mike d’Abo will perform many of their hits, including "Pretty Flamingo", "Mighty Quinn", and "Do Wah Diddy Diddy". They will also perform tracks from their individual solo albums, including the d’Abo-penned classic, "Handbags and Gladrags". The group topped the UK Singles Chart with three of their most successful singles, and their 1964 hit "5-4-3-2-1" was the theme tune for the ITV pop music show Ready Steady Go!. They were the first southern-England-based group to top the US Billboard Hot 100 during the British invasion.
