HE’S already gone down a sell-out storm in The Core Theatre, Solihull, and now piano man Boogie Williams is bringing ‘Great Balls of Fire’ – the music of Jerry Lee Lewis – to the Palace Theatre in Redditch.
Jerry Lee Lewis is the original bad man of rock ‘n’ roll, known as ‘The Killer’ for his cutting edge sound, expect wild applause and dancing in the aisles when he takes to the stage, said promoter and producer Lynne Steele.
“Boogie Williams is an incredibly talented musician who’s played in 90s chart band Milltown Brothers, appeared on Top of the Pops and as a mystery guest on ‘Never Mind the Buzzcocks’ and so I know Redditch is in for a great show as the man is a genius on the piano,” she added.
“Solihull was our first ever ‘Great Balls of Fire’ show and he went down a storm – and they’ve already booked him in for next year.”
Backed by a live band Lynne also hinted ‘Jerry Lee’ could be joined on stage by rock ‘n’ roll contemporary Buddy Holly, played by another talented musician, Spencer Jordan.
“I should say that Boogie Williams isn’t a tribute act, there are no wigs in this show, it’s just going to be great music, played 100 per cent live for everyone to enjoy,” said Lynne.
“You know it’s incredibly hard to get a new show out there, this one has been developing for eight to nine months, but the way Boogie Williams has taken off, well I’m sure it’s going to knock your socks off.”
Great Balls of Fire with Boogie Williams at the piano is on Thursday, February 20 at 7.30pm at the Palace Theatre and tickets are £21 from the box office in person or on 01527 65203 or at www.redditchpalacetheatre.co.uk.
