Reuben Richards & The Jezebel Sextet Present: The Music of Otis Redding

See Otis Redding's songs performed live on stage as two of the UK's most exciting soul acts join forces to make the world’s funkiest Otis Redding show!

Originally commissioned by Soul Cookers Records for Saint Paul Soul Jazz Festival, this show pairs award winning soul singer Reuben Richards with Hammond and horns from The Jezebel Sextet. The result is a truly uplifting show steeped in 1960s soul that's guaranteed to get you on the good foot.

You’ll hear 20 Otis Redding classics including My Girl, Mr Pitiful, Hard To Handle, Love Man, Try A Little Tenderness and Sitting on the Dock of the Bay - all performed by an incredible 8 piece band.

This show has built a fanatical following touring all over the UK and Europe and regularly sells out top London venues such as The Jazz Cafe, Pizza Express Dean Street, and The Hideaway.

ABOUT REUBEN RICHARDS

London's original soul man Reuben Richards is an award winning singer who's performed all over the world and gained widespread recognition for his Otis Redding inspired vocals. One of his early singles 'Hold On My Heart' drew praise from former Atlantic Records boss Jerry Wexler. Reuben subsequently performed with Stax/Otis Redding's guitarist and songwriting partner Steve Cropper. In 2016 Reuben released his debut album 'About Time' which was BBC Radio 2 Album Of The Week alongside his single ‘ASAP' which was also BBC Radio 2's Record Of The Week. Reuben went on to achieve his highest accolade when he was awarded ‘Best Soul Singer 2016’ presented by Jools Holland at the Boisdale in London.

'Reuben's voice runs from breaking & emotional to Pickettesque power, and positively shines.' – Blues in Britain
