Jools Holland's Boogie Woogie Extravaganza

Boogie Woogie

April 19 2022

Jools Hol­land returned to Canary Wharf for his ever-pop­u­lar piano extrav­a­gan­za in asso­ci­a­tion with Yama­ha Music Lon­don and it was a night to remem­ber. He host­ed a piano pound­ing extrav­a­gan­za fea­tur­ing his choice of espe­cial­ly tal­ent­ed guests includ­ing Tom Seals, Ben Waters, Neville Dick­ie, Pad­dy Mil­ner, Angus Mac­Don­ald, Ruby Turn­er and Louise Marshall.

Jools, who is Patron of Music at Bois­dale, was a found­ing mem­ber and key­board play­er of the huge­ly suc­cess­ful 70s and 80s pop band Squeeze, before pur­su­ing his solo career which includ­ed pre­sent­ing the ground-break­ing ear­ly 80s music show on Chan­nel 4, The Tube, with Paula Yates. These days, when he’s not play­ing, he presents a week­ly show on BBC Radio 2.

Jools’s charis­mat­ic per­son­al­i­ty, impec­ca­ble taste and acces­si­ble music have made him one of the nation’s most respect­ed, and loved, musi­cians. Jools was award­ed an OBE in 2003 for his ser­vices to the British music industry.

“Jools is part of the fur­ni­ture for a rea­son,” said Ranald. ​“The music and the pas­sion he brings to the Bois­dale stage, be it in Bel­gravia or Canary Wharf, is infec­tious and lingers for days after.”
