SIXTIES sensations The Manfreds – regarded as one of the finest and most respected bands of that era – will be playing the Palace Theatre next Saturday, September 12.
Their countless chart-topping hits won them worldwide acclaim thanks to their R&B-based jazzy style which added a taste of something different to the normal pop fare.
As a result, their records have a timeless quality and some 53 years on, The Manfreds, with original front man Paul Jones, will be performing the songs that made them famous along with a mix of Jazz and Blues from some of their best-known albums.
Jones, with his unique harmonica sound, will be joined by Mike Hugg on keyboards, Tom McGuinness on lead guitar, Rob Townsend on drums, Marcus Cliffe on bass guitar and Simon Currie on saxophone/ flute.
All excellent musicians who will provide a full evening’s entertainment with a few ‘surprise’ renditions of their work, not only with The Manfreds, but with their individual connections.
The curtain goes up at 7.30pm and tickets are available in person or at the box office on 01527 65203 priced £20.25* (*inclusive of booking fee 75p per ticket up to a maximum £3.00) or you can purchase your seats online at www.redditchpalacetheatre.co.uk .
