– The Music of Stevie Wonder

With the Some Kinda Wonderful band featuring the sensational vocalist Noel McCalla and award-winning saxophonist Derek Nash

Two Shows:

Wednesday 12th July 

and Wednesday 8th November 2023

Pizza Express Live, Holborn, London

Returning to Holborn to continue their series of spectacular sold-out shows in London and the UK. 

With audiences up on their feet dancing and demanding more and more, we had to make summer and autumn plans for this “Master Blaster” of a show to return.

The Wonder of Stevie 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 to play a wide-ranging catalogue of Stevie’s 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'. Audiences are thrilled by the performances of these great Stevie Wonder classics.

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.
