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.
