Amazing Adventures Released at Vintage Festival

AMazing AdventuresOur brand new album inspired by 1930's and 40s pulp fiction stories is now available! The new CD of all original tunes was premiered last week at the Vintage Festival at the Royal Festival Hall with an expanded band that included the fabulous Spinettes on backing vocals, Tony Socci on trumpet, Martin Smith on guitar and Alex Bland on Baritone sax, not to mention a selection of different hats to match the genres of the stories. The set went down a storm and we're looking at some more shows in the near future.

The new album is now available from us directly, just email sales@jiveaces.com or call +44 1342 300 075. You can also check out the special "making of" video by CLICKING HERE

Bring Me Sunshine Film Festival Frenzy

CDAfter winning a prestigious Silver Telly Award, our "Bring Me Sunshine" video is now appearing in several film festivals around the USA including the New York Independent Film Festival, the Port Townsend Film Festival and most appropriately the Feel Good Film Festival in Hollywood, California! So far we have received great feedback from these screenings and look forward to several more!

If you are in need of a shot of sunshine then go to www.jiveaces.com/sunshine. To download the song follow the links to iTunes there too (or click this link is.gd/uksunshine)

Don't forget to spread the sunshine and send the video on to your friends and family by way of email, Facebook and Twitter etc.

Going for Olympic Glory

In conjunction with Scott Cupit and Swing Patrol we are making a bid to have swing dancing included in the Olympic celebrations as it is fast becoming an indispensable part of so many Londoners' lives. Check out this video we made together and please spread he word. Also, if you know anyone that has ANYTHING to do with the Olympics, please send it to them too.
