King of the Swingers

A belated happy new year to you!

2013 was a blast and 2014 got off to a flying start for us, we've already done a dozen gigs in the UK as well as trips to Norway and the Seychelles!

Also, a big thanks to everybody who bought the Christmas CD or download in aid of the Not Forgotten Association. We'll be doing a cheque presentation soon so watch this space!

Coming Up This Week

This weekend we start with a honme town performance at the Chequer Mead Theatre in East Grinstead on Friday 31st Jan. DJ Jivin' Man will be spinning records in the foyer cafe for dancing before and after the show. We also have a special guest apearance from the East Grinstead Ukulele Club which Ian accidentally started.

Then on Saturday we are up at the Stoneleigh Militaria event dance near Coventry. For tickets contact DJ Woody for tickets at woodyatwar@tesco.net or 0247 639 3448.

And rounding off the weekend we are back at one of London's most iconic jazz venues, the famous Ronnie Scott's for a lunchtime show. All details for these and other shows are in the Gig Guide below.

 

Big Jive All-Dayer 2014

After last year's sellout, tickets are being scrambled for now!

So this year we have assembled a fantastic lineup of good friends; The Swing Commanders, Jackson Sloan and the Rhythmtones, Cody "Boogie Boy" Lee and his band and a UK exclusive from the USA, the honkin' sax of Detroit Gary Wiggins with the Paris Allstars. Gary soent many years playing with sax legends Big Jay McNeely and Arnett Cobb, what an education!

Plus DJs Major 5x5, Lil' Miss Wiggles, Jivin' Man and Gi-Jive, vintage stalls and a huge dance floor in a gorgeous art-deco venue.

Tickets are £20.50/£18.50 in advance and are available direct from the venue at 01903 206 206 or www.worthingtheatres.co.uk. There is also a group discount of 10 or more tickets.
