Manoeuvres - Tribute to
Europe's premier tribute to OMD – Orchestral Manoeuvres in the Dark -
one of the most influential and original bands to emerge from the early
days of synth pop in the late 1970’s.
Barry & Sarah created MANOEUVRES to bring you a Tribute Show to OMD
brought about by a genuine love and respect for the music of these synth
pop pioneers. By focusing on meticulous attention to detail together
with a little twist or two of their own, an energetic and authentic
stage performance is ensured, faithfully capturing the atmosphere and
excitement of a true OMD concert.
Performing all of OMD's many hit songs such as 'Enola Gay', 'Messages',
'Sailing On The Seven Seas' and 'Souvenir' to name but a few, MANOEUVRES
will leave you with lasting memories of a captivating and unique show
that you will want to see again and again.
BARRY: Lead Vocal,
Bass Guitar & Synthesisers
Having been a bass player and vocalist in numerous other bands over the
years, Barry is proud to now front Manoeuvres. His animated stage
presence and unique vocal style are ideally suited to the task which he
carries out with great energy and pride. He is also the person behind
the scenes producing the sounds and music that are used on stage,
resulting in many late nights/early mornings sat at the keyboard
supported by copious cups of tea, coffee and peanuts!
Electronic Drums & Vocals
With years of experience performing in other tribute bands, Sarah is the
ideal partner for Barry on stage playing the synthesisers and drums as
well as providing backing and some lead vocals. Off stage, whens she’s
not drawing (she is a children’s book illustrator) she is responsible
for all of the design work, social media, web design/content,
promotional material and moral support. Along with this, her fashion
sense is key in creating our look on stage because of course, Andy &
Paul ARE fashion icons…
ARTHUR: Our very own
Teac X-10 Auto-reel
How could we not pay homage to Winston! So yes we have our own tribute,
He’s a little down that he’s not as iconic, nor that he’s no where near
worth as much as Winston’s model, but he does the job for us!
