All the hits of Stevie Wonder heading for The Core this autumn

Solihull Editorial 8th Aug, 2021   0

FANS of the legendary Stevie Wonder are in for a real treat when the band Some Kinda Wonderful performs at The Core, Solihull on Saturday, October 9.

Celebrating the genius of Stevie Wonder, the mesmeric vocalist, Noel McCalla, award-winning saxophonist, Derek Nash, and a band of world-class musicians will be playing a wide-ranging back catalogue of classics from ‘Signed, Sealed, Delivered’ through to hits from ‘Talking Book’, ‘Innervisions’, ‘Songs in the Key of Life’ and ‘Hotter than July’.

Playing hit after hit, from the dance floor classics ‘I Wish’ and ‘Superstition’ to beautiful arrangements of ‘My Cherie Amour’ and ‘Overjoyed’, the set will also include compositions by Stevie that others have had massive hits with.

Noel McCalla’s long association with the brilliant Morrisey Mullen Band earned him acclaim as one of Britain’s best soul singers and, for more than 19 years, his searing, soulful vocals were featured with the iconic Manfred Mann’s Earth Band.

He also provided vocals on Mike Rutherford’s highly-acclaimed album, ‘Smallcreep’s Day’ and is regularly featured with jazz funk band, Mezzoforte.

Derek Nash has played with the Jools Holland Rhythm and Blues Orchestra since 2004 and is also a member of the Ronnie Scotts Blues Explosion.

He has won several British Jazz Awards throughout his career.

He’s performed live, on record and on television with Gregory Porter, Chaka Khan, David Sanborn, Eric Clapton, Nile Rogers, Amy Winehouse and many more.

Joining Noel and Derek will be Jonathan Noyce (bass), Tim Cansfield (guitar), Neil Angilley (keyboards) and Nic France (drums) who, between them, have performed with, among many others, The Bee Gees, Bill Withers, Gary Moore, Michael Ball and Alfie Boe.
