Manoeuvres - Tribute to OMD



MANOEUVRES are 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!


SARAH: Synthesizers, 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!
