Details

Jools Holland & His Rhythm & Blues Orchestra returns to The Sands Centre, featuring Gilson Lavis with special guest stars and guest vocalists.

Formed in 1987, The Jools Holland Big Band, comprising himself and Gilson Lavis, 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.

Jools and His Rhythm & Blues Orchestra play to audiences in excess of 200,000 each year. As well as formidable live performances, Jools has maintained a prolific recording career since signing to Warner Music in 1996, which includes the multimillion selling Jools and Friends series. Notable 'friends' have included Sting, Chrissie Hynde, George Harrison, Norah Jones, Eric Clapton, David Gilmour, Bono, Joe Strummer, KT Tunstall, Robert Plant, Smokey Robinson, Ringo Starr, Peter Gabriel, Solomon Burke, and many more.

Jools continues to dazzle audiences with the Rhythm & Blues Orchestra and their live performances with celebrated UK singers, such as Lulu, Marc Almond, Dave Edmunds, Alison Moyet and Sandie Shaw, all sharing the stage with Jools Holland over the last few years.
