Jools Holland & Band
If anyone knows his stuff, it's him: With his BBC show Later... with Jools Holland, TV star, pianist and bandleader JOOLS HOLLAND has the most iconic music show in Europe at the start. From Amy Winehouse, Ed Sheeran and Adele to Bono, Pearl Jam or BB King, he has had them all on his show. He is definitely considered the best in his field and in June 2003 he received the "Order of the British Empire" from Queen Elizabeth II for his special services to the British music industry. In September 2011, JOOLS HOLLAND released a compilation especially for the German-speaking market, which, in the best Later...with Jools Holland tradition, presented a whole range of top acts, including Eric Clapton, Sting, David Gilmour, Nick Cave, Tom Jones and many other international greats. But Jools Holland also came up with a sensational surprise, because for the first time the album also featured artists from Germany: Roger Cicero, Ina Müller, The Baseballs, Axel & Torsten Zwingenberger were among them. Herbert Grönemeyer was represented with two songs, including a wonderful version of Randy Newman's Marie. He is supported on this tour by the singers Louise Marshall , Lucita Jules and of course again by Ruby Turner, the "Queen of Boogie Woogie", all of whom have been a fixed part of Jools' band for years. As usual, Klaxon's drummer George Latham is on drums.
