To kick off the new year in the very best way, it’s great to welcome back Laura B & The Moonlighters, one of our favourite band of all time. This eight-piece good time, Rhythm and Blues/Swing band features the ridiculously excellent Laura B on vocals. Look forward to a night of brilliant rockin’ and honkin’ rhythm and blues from Laura B and her superb septet, in the upbeat style of Ruth Brown, Big Maybelle and Lavern Baker.
The Moonlighters are a collection of the best authentic sounding rhythm and blues players in Europe whose credentials speak for themselves. Comprised of members from many bands who have played the circuit across the UK, Europe, USA and even Japan. Laura’s all-star band comprises members of Ocean’s Seven, Juke Joint Jump, Sugar Ray’s Flying Fortress, The Big Six, Alabama Slammers, The Mike Sanchez Band and Jools Holland’s R’n’B Orchestra, to name but a few. Also featuring the exceptional Henri Herbert at the boogie-woogie 88, Lady Laura and the guys guarantee a big beat sound and performance to match many of the great R’n’B artistes of the fifties, so why not check them out at www.laurabandthemoonlighters.co.uk
As usual the night kicks off with a jive class aimed at beginners followed by two sets from the band and DJs filling in. Booking recommended.
