BOOGIE your way into the New Year with legendary TV host, Squeeze-star and musician Jools Holland, along with his incredible Rhythm and Blues Orchestra.

Jools Holland is touring the length and breadth of the UK with his Rhythm and Blues Orchestra and will be joined for the very first time by one of the UK’s most enduring and acclaimed vocalists, performers and songwriters, the extraordinary Alison Moyet.

Jools first rose rose to fame as a founding member of the new wave British pop band, Squeeze, who are best known for their hits for their hit that include Cool for Cats, Up the Junction and Tempted.

Renowned for bringing the ultimate party experience to stages around the country, Jool’s latest tour has had fans and critics dancing in their seats after wowing audiences across the land. Jools said that the current tour is one the best of his colourful and prolifuc career.

“These are shaping up to be some of our best shows yet,” he said.

“Not only do we have the truly remarkable talents of Ruby Turner and Louise Marshall, but we will be joined for the first time by the incredible Alison Moyet.”

“Her voice is truly unique and has a blues and soul quality that fits perfectly into the Rhythm & Blues Orchestra party.”

Last year, Alison Moyet celebrated her 25-year career with the release of the massively successful The Best Of Alison Moyet, which was a true reflection of the extraordinary music she has produced, and a testament to the diversity of her talents.

Her stunning and vivacious vocal style and range, from subtle blues and bombastic soul to big pop chart hits is the perfect fit for the party atmosphere of the Jools Holland and his Rhythm and Blues Orchestra live extravaganza.

“I first sang with Jools in the early 80s on The Tube, the show, not the non public transport variety, and often times since and it is ever a pleasure,” said Alison Moyet.

“Taking part in his tour will be both a fabulous sea change and a return to the beginning.”

She added: “It’s a great thing being invited to work with musicians of this fine calibre.”

This annual event has seen Jools Holland and his Rhythm and Blues Orchestra perform to four and a half million people around the UK, and continues to acknowledge and highlight the vocal brilliance of the legendary Ruby Turner and soulful Louise Marshall.

They will be joined again on this tour by the Ska and Reggae icon Rico Rodriguez.
