Lineup and Details for Jools Holland and His Rhythm & Blues Band on Sat 28th July 2012
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. Following in the footsteps of celebrated UK singers such as Lulu, Marc Almond, Dave Edmunds and Alison Moyet, who have all shared the stage with Jools Holland over the last few years, pop icon Sandie Shaw is joining Jools on his tour this year from April to August.
