March 17th 2012: Laura B & The Moonlighters
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.
Laura is backed by her all star band comprising of 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.
As usual we will start the evening with a jive dance class aimed at beginners.
