THE original members of a cult 60s band will be blasting out their hits at a gig this weekend.
Manfred Mann founders Paul Jones, Mike Hugg, Tom McGuinness and Mike D'Abo will be joined by Rob Townsend, Marcus Cliffe and Simon Currie for an exciting new line-up which will be called The Manfreds.
Both lead singers from the band's glory days 40 years ago will be on stage at The Stag in Sevenoaks at 8pm on Saturday.
Since The Manfreds, best known for their song The Mighty Quinn, re-formed in 1991 they have been in constant demand worldwide.
Saturday's is the first in a series of Stag concerts featuring star bands from the 60s, with Gerry and the Pacemakers performing in March and the Searchers in April.
A theatre spokesperson said: "It will be a night of pure nostalgia when the band perform some of their famous hits, including Do Wah Diddy Diddy, 5-4-3-2-1, Pretty Flamingo and many more.
"The Manfreds are renowned for staging memorable concerts, and for their first visit to the Stag they will include some surprise items during the evening."
