King of the Swingers

While we're enjoying one of the best British Summers we can remember we thought we'd take a few minutes out of basking to update you on the latest and the nextest...

Jive And Dollz UK Tour

The Satin Dollz dazzled UK audiences on their two-week tour with us starting at the War and Peace Revival in it's new location at Folkestone Racecourse and taking us through the Marlborough Jazz Festival, Guildhall Arts Centre in Grantham, The Hideaway in Streatham and more.

We even squeezed in some tourist stuff with a picnic at Hever Castle, a VIP tour of the Tower of London and not forgetting the highlight, performing for the Chelsea Pensioners at the Royal Hospital!

We were even featured together in a huge double page spread in Le Figaro Magazine, a national Sunday supplement from France. All wearing Vivien of Holloway too!

For those not in the UK who are slapping yourselves for missing it, don't despair! Jives and Dollz will be in the USA in November for two shows, Sun 17th November at Maxwell Demille's Cicada Club in L.A. and Sat 23rd November at the Livermore Performing Arts Centre in Northern California. Details in the Gig Guide below!

Autumn UK Theatre Tour

We have a very exciting tour coming up starting at the end of August, all through September and into October at theatre venues all over the UK from Fife to the south Coast.

Summertime Swing

Summertime Swing was a huge success yet again. A Huge thanks to everyone who came and especially all the guest performers, Toni Elizabeth Prima, Laurie London, The Three Belles and a surprise performance from skiffle King Chas McDevitt and Wizard percussionist extraordinaire Charlie Grima!
