King of the Swingers

With the British Summer now firmly over, we need Bring Me Sunshine more than ever! Read on for the latest news and upcoming awesomeness...

"King of the Swingers" for a Grammy!

Our "King of the Swingers" album is on the ballot for a Grammy! What does that mean exactly? Well, it means it is on the official list of albums entered so members of the academy can vote for it to then become a nomination.

We have to make as many of the voting members aware of it and get them to listen to it as possible so they can then vote for it.

That's where your help comes in! All you have to do is let anyone you know in the music industry that the album is on the ballot.

If you don't think you know anyone in the music biz, share it anyway as you never know who you know. And you never know who you know, knows!

Here are a couple of handy links to make it easy:

FaceBook:
is.gd/JiveAcesGrammyFB

Twitter:
is.gd/JiveAcesGrammyTW

People can listen to the album at http://is.gd/KOSlisten and watch all the music videos at http://is.gd/KOSwatch so don't forget to send those links too!

Don't forget you can also share on Myspace, GooglePlus, Instagram and/or any other social media of choice!

Christmas CD and Video for Help for Heroes

We have some very exciting news! This year we are releasing our very first Christmas E.P. with special guests The Three Belles.

The five-track CD features four classic holiday tunes done in our jumpin' style plus one original song called "Christmas is Where You Are". We are currently preparing a music video shoot for this track and the proceeds of the single will be going to Help For Heroes.

We also have a series of shows in December with The Three Belles to celebrate the release of the CD, check out the gig guide below!

Big Jive All-Dayer 2014

Tickets are already selling fast for The Big Jive All-Dayer 2014! If you are looking for an extra Christmas present for the discerning dancer or retro/vintage lover then this is the hot ticket!

We have a great lineup joining us; The Swing Commanders, Jackson Sloan and the Rhythmtones, Cody "Boogie Boy" Lee and his band and an exclusive from the USA, the honkin' sax of Detroit Gary Wiggins with the Paris All-stars. Gary spent 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.

Autumn UK Theatre Tour

Our "King of the Swingers" theatre tour is wrapping up with only a couple of dates left to go.

We were very lucky to have had Toni Elizabeth Prima extend her UK visit to accompany us on most of the shows as well as Rebecca Grant. They both appear as guests on our King of the Swingers album and we recreated the Prima magic live on stage!

Remaining Dates:
Fri 25th Oct - Hafren Theatre, Powys
Sun 27th Oct - Bob Hope Theatre, Eltham (SOLD OUT)

For those of you in the USA, don't forget that Toni will be joining us for our shows in L.A., Washington D.C., Athens (Georgia) and Livermore, CA. See the gig guide below for details.
