Jools Holland and his Rhythm and Blues Orchestra

JOOLS HOLLAND
And his RHYTHM & BLUES ORCHESTRA
Featuring GILSON LAVIS
With SPECIAL GUESTS IMELDA MAY & TOBY LEE
And guest vocalists RUBY TURNER
LOUISE MARSHALL & SUMUDU JAYATILAKA

Jools Holland returns to Hastings White Rock where fans will be thrilled to hear that the show will once again feature the incredible Ruby Turner and the outstanding vocals of Louise Marshall, and Sumudu Jayatilaka. Together with the skilful musicianship of the Rhythm & Blues Orchestra, which features drums from original Squeeze member Gilson Lavis, Jools Holland will be performing tracks spanning his entire solo career. With a catalogue of boogie woogie classics to choose from, the show is sure to have fans on their feet!

Irish singer-songwriter Imelda May will join Jools as a very special guest. Their previous live collaborations have included show-stealing performances by Imelda May on vocals and she credits her debut appearance on the BBC’s Later… with Jools Holland in 2008 as her big break.

Audiences will be treated to the talent of blues guitar prodigy and social media sensation, Toby Lee. Described by Joe Bonamassa as “a future superstar of the blues” Toby first came to public attention at 10 years old when he posted a get well soon jam for BB King which went viral with five million views in a week. Since then, he has performed in West End productions, winning Olivier and UK Blues Awards, and showcasing his skills around the world.

Jools said about the tour, “I’m delighted to announce a truly remarkable mix of guest artists on this year’s tour. The boogie-woogie queen of our orchestra, Ruby Turner, Louise Marshall, and Sumudu Jayatilaka will be illuminating brilliant songs old and new. I’m also proud to introduce the new dazzling voice and guitar of British blues, the extraordinary 19-year-old, Toby Lee.

“All backed by the unique sound of my Rhythm & Blues Orchestra, the big band that will treat us to mega talented soloists and frenzy inducing rhythms. Please come and join us, I look forward to seeing you.”
