Pianist, bandleader, singer, composer, TV presenter and multiplatinum recording artist Jools Holland will be taking to the stage on Saturday, May 20.
The talented musician will be joined by his much loved Rhythm & Blues Orchestra as well as vocalists Ruby Turner and Louise Marshall along with former Squeeze drummer Gilson Lavis.
Audiences should expect an evening of toe tapping jazz and blues along with tracks spanning Jools’ solo career, and songs taken from his latest album Jools & Ruby.
And next February former boxer and national treasure Frank Bruno MBE will be hosting ‘An Evening with Frank Bruno’.
