Jools Holland and His Rhythm and Blues Orchestra play Somerleyton Hall this Saturday, August 11 The maestro boogie-woogie pianist is coming back to East Anglia for another night of high class, high energy rhythm and blues.
The Rhythm and Blues Orchestra evolved from the initial seeds in 1985 when Jools and his drummer Gilson Lavis began touring as a duo, into a disciplined 18-piece band capable of selling out all year all over the UK and Europe.
The release of Jools' highly successful albums Small World Big Band and Swinging the Blues Dancing the Ska have enhanced his reputation as an outstanding musician and performer.
Jool's special guest for the concert is the legendary Lulu - now in her fourth decade of entertaining. She joins the Jools show with a vast catalogue of hit records and performances worldwide. Lulu is joined on guest vocals by Ruby Turner and Louise Marshall.
This concert will be the very last of Jools' Summer 2007 tour so you can expect a massive party atmosphere.
