The former Spice Girl is among the guests who will feature in two shows next month (May) at Tunbridge Wells' Assembly Hall Theatre on Friday, May 9, and at  Canterbury's Marlowe Theatre on Thursday, May 15, then at Margate Winter Gardens on Friday, August 29. Other special guests will include Ruby Turner, Marc Almond and Louise Marshall.

In 1987 Jools formed The Jools Holland Big Band, comprising himself and Gilson Lavis. This has gradually metamorphosed into the current 20-piece Jools Holland and His Rhythm & Blues Orchestra, which consists of pianist, organist, drummer, three female vocals, guitar, bass guitar, two tenor saxophones, two alto saxophones, baritone saxophone, three trumpets, and four trombones.
