Accompanying Jools with the Rhythm & Blues Orchestra on their annual excursion around the UK will be the supremely talented Ruby Turner, with her breath-taking gospel, soul and rhythm & blues vocals, Louise Marshall, with her beautiful soul and jazz tones, as well as original Squeeze member and powerhouse Gilson Lavis on drums.

Additional special special guest will be BRIT Award winner Eddi Reader. Jools has previously described Eddi Reader as, "One of his favourite singers of all time." Jools and Eddi have been collaborating musically for more than 20 years, with highlights that include their single 'Waiting Game', which Jools co-wrote with Chris Difford, as well as featuring in the 2009 Richard Linklater film 'Me and Orson Welles' and also the soundtrack. Eddi also famously harmonised with Annie Lennox whilst touring with Eurythmics as well as leading vocals in the band Fairground Attraction, reaching the top of the UK charts in 1988 with single 'Perfect'.

Previous special guests who have performed with Jools on his UK tours include the likes of Lulu, Joss Stone, Roland Gift, Melanie C and most recently Marc Almond who released a joint album with Jools in November 2018, ‘A Lovely Life To Live’.

With a tremendous collection of Jools tunes and other boogie-woogie classics to choose from, Jools’ UK tour is set to be an unforgettable night out that will have audiences on their feet!
