King of the Swingers

Well, in the last few weeks we've been in the USA, Italy (twice), Ireland, Holland and Belgium not to mention the length and breadth of the UK! Read on for what's coming up next!

Coming Up

Live shotComing up this week and ending off May with a bang we have five gigs in three days! Starting at the Chelsea Flower Show on Friday at 10am after which we head to Witham Public Hall for The Big Jive Essex with Rebecca Grant, Jackson Sloan and The Rhythmtones and DJ Rob Be-Bop starting at 8pm.

On Saturday we're back at the Chelsea Flower Show at 12:30pm followed by the Dianetics Anniversary Event After Party at Saint Hill Manor in East Grinstead (free show).

Lastly on Sunday afternoon at 4pm we're at Defest in Caterham, Surrey for the first time. All details for these and more show in the gig guide below.

Summertime Swing

Summertime Swing flyerJust added to the line up for this year's Summertime Swing on 4th August is our good friend Toni Elizabeth Prima, daughter of the legendary Louis Prima and Keely Smith. After missing last year's event she couldn't wait to get back!

She'll be joining us along with Laurie London (best known as the 13 year old who took the world by storm in the late 50s with his single "He's Got The Whole World In His Hands"), The Three Belles and a special tribute to Mr Kenny Kenny Ball with his son Keith. We are working on more very special guests too so keep an eye on our FaceBook page for announcements.

Tickets are available from summertimeswing.eventbrite.co.uk. or call 07947 156 318.

We are also looking for people to sponsor the back of the A6 flyer that gets dropped to 15,000 Sussex homes. If you'd like to promote your business and support our charity event please email promo@jiveaces.com ASAP for details as space is limited!

The Satin Dollz

Our friends from Hollywood, The Satin Dollz, are coming to perform with us this July! We can't wait to have them back in the UK, the last time they toured with us here was winter 2011 and we all got stuck in the snow together!

Autumn 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.

If you've seen the band at a theatre before you know we put on quite a show, often with some surprise guest singes and performers! If you haven't seen us in this type of venue before then now is your chance!
