Jools Holland and his Rhythm & Blues Orchestra announced for the Wexford Spiegeltent Festival
Jools Holland and his Rhythm & Blues Orchestra have been announced for a headline show in the Paradiso Spiegeltent this October.
In 1987, Jools formed The Jools Holland Big Band – comprising himself and Gilson Lavis. This has gradually metamorphosed into the current 19-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 three trombones.
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 Holland 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, Sugababes, Ringo Starr, Peter Gabriel, Solomon Burke, and many more.
Jools Holland and his Rhythm & Blues Orchestra featuring GILSON LAVIS and guest vocalists RUBY TURNER & LOUISE MARSHALL play the Wexford Spiegeltent Festival on Wednesday 16th October at 8pm.
This is a standing show.
