Celebrating the genius of Stevie Wonder, vocalist Noel McCalla and award-winning saxophonist Derek Nash, have put together a band of top musicians to play a wide-ranging back-catalogue of classic hits, from 1970’s ‘Signed, Sealed, Delivered’ through to hits from ‘Talking Book’, ‘Innervisions’, ‘Songs in the Key of Life’ and ‘Hotter than July’.

Noel McCalla’s long association with the 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 Scotts 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, many more.

“Derek Nash is one of the most versatile saxophonists in the UK today.” (The Guardian)
