GET ready to boogie-woogie because Jools Holland is on his way back to town.
The ever-popular musician is set to kick off two nights of live music this summer when Christchurch Park once again becomes a first-class concert venue.
Jools will once more be joined by his Rhythm & Blues Orchestra and Sam Brown when he takes to the stage at the first of the two Open Air Picnic Concerts in the park's natural concert bowl on July 25.
Last year more than 1,000 people were on their feet and dancing, showing their approval to the pint-sized star in the same park and this year, come rain or shine, it promises to be no different.

And just like last year, when the Red Devils descended from the skies in a fantastic display of aerobatics, the concert will come with an extra-special treat.
Not only will a cappella band The Magnets again open the concert but this year the event, called Action Proms, will include an amazing motorcycle spectacular full of fire and stunts during the interval.
More announcements about the events are expected before the summer but the two nights of live music are already shaping up to be open air concerts not to be missed.
