Musical Royalty Jools Holland Announces Concert At Scarborough Spa
Piano master Jools Holland and his Rhythm and Blues Orchestra are set to perform live at Scarborough Spa next year.
After sell out shows in 2013 and 2014, Jools will return with the big band on Thursday 26 May 2016.
The 20-piece Rhythm & Blues Orchestra will feature former Squeeze drummer, Gilson Lavis, show-stopping vocalists Ruby, Louise Marshall and Mabel Ray, with a special guest vocalist who is yet to be announced.
The presenter of the legendary 'Later…with Jools Holland' TV show has been wowing audiences from a very young age, performing regularly in many of the pubs in South East London and the East End Docks. At the age of 15 Jools was introduced to Glenn Tilbrook and Chris Difford; together they formed Squeeze.
In 1987 Jools formed The Jools Holland Big Band, comprising himself and Gilson Lavis. This has gradually metamorphosed into the current 20-piece Jools Holland and His Rhythm & Blues Orchestra, which consists of pianist, organist, drummer, three female vocals, guitar, bass guitar, two tenor saxophones, two alto saxophones, baritone saxophone, three trumpets, and four trombones.
Jo Ager, General Manager of Scarborough Spa said:
"It really is fantastic news that Jools is returning to our sea-side venue. The last two sell-out performances were stunning and we look forward to a repeat performance next year."
Tickets for ‘Jools Holland & his Rhythm & Blues Orchestra’ are priced at £36 and go on sale Friday 30 October at 9am. Tickets will be available from The Spa’s Box Office (01723) 821888 and via www.scarboroughspa.co.uk
