|The Recipe For Rhythm Cake|
|With BBC DJ Harry King and his neighbour Fiona (baker of the aforementioned cake!)|
The Jive Aces have been all over the place recently (no change there then!) including concerts up and down the country from Lancaster to London and everywhere in between!
We've also been doing a lot of concerts in various town centres around the country for the "Truth About Drugs" campaign. You can find out more about the campaign by visiting www.drugfreeworld.org.
Next door neighbour to BBC Radio presenter Harry King who's show we appeared on recently also baked a special cake in honour of our latest album and very nice it was too (see the pre-eaten pic <--)!
Our sellout show at the 100 club went down a storm and we had some special guests (see feature below).
