  • This “Master Blaster” of a show returns for the post Covid opening series of JBGB Events concerts. It’s a party night out, after previous sold out shows here and across London’s top venues and the South East, with audiences on their feet dancing away and demanding more.

    ‘Some Kinda Wonderful’ celebrates the life-time genius of Stevie Wonder, with mesmeric vocalist Noel McCalla, the award-winning saxophonist Derek Nash and a band of world-class musicians.

    They return by popular request to play a wide-ranging catalogue of classic hits, guaranteed to appeal to anyone who loves great music.

    Enjoy hit after hit from albums such as ‘Signed, Sealed, Delivered’, ‘Innervisions’, ‘Songs in the Key of Life’ and ‘Hotter than July’, including danceable classics ‘Superstition’, ‘For Once in my Life’ and ‘Isn’t She Lovely’, and beautiful arrangements of ‘My Cherie Amour’ and ‘Overjoyed’.

     

  • Noel McCalla’s long association with the brilliant Morrisey Mullen Band earned him acclaim as “one of Britain’s best Soul Singers” (Blues and Soul Magazine) and, for more than 19 years, Noel’s searing, soulful vocals were featured with the iconic Manfred Mann’s Earth Band.

    Derek Nash has played in Jools Holland’s Rhythm and Blues Orchestra since 2004 and is also a member of the Ronnie Scott’s Blues Explosion. He has won several British Jazz Awards throughout his career fronting Sax Appeal, his Acoustic Quartet and the funk band, Protect the Beat.

    Derek has performed live, on record and on television with Gregory Porter, Chaka Khan, David Sanborn, Eric Clapton, Jack Bruce, Amy Winehouse and many more.

  • Rarely have I heard the music of Stevie Wonder interpreted with such finesse, energy, and all-round brilliance.
