They have the fantastic reputation as one of the most entertaining bands on tour today.

Mike D’Abo was the only one man who could fill Paul Jones’ shoes as front man for Manfred Mann.

Just Like A Woman, Semi-Detached Suburban Mr James and Mighty Quinn were just three of the string of hits with the ‘new boy’ in the line-up. And, like his predecessor, Mike’s career after the disbanding of the Manfreds in 1969 lost none of its momentum. He’d already proved his impressive skill as a songwriter by composing Build Me Up Buttercup for The Foundations and Handbags & Gladrags, a massive hit for Chris Farlowe.
