King of the Swingers

With the coldest Easter on record in the UK, it's no wonder people are in need of a little sunshine. Well, we've been all over the place spreading the warmth so read on for the latest news!

Still Spreading the Sunshine

SunshineOver two years after it's release, Bring Me Sunshine continues to spread the warmth. Firstly it has enjoyed airplay on BBC Radio 2 on both Anneka Rice and Elaine Paige's shows and just last week the Daily Express ran a great article on how the video has been cheering everybody up which you can read by clicking HERE.

Don't forget if you ever need a shot of sunshine yourself then head to jiveaces.com/sunshine!

We have been getting great feedback on our latest CD, "King of the Swingers" from which "Bring Me Sunshine" is taken. To get your copy of the CD CLICK HERE or to download from King of the Swingers - Jive Aces.

Toyota Positive

PriusWe were recently approached by Saatchi and Saatchi to take part in the Toyota Positive campaign which aims to inspire people to do good deeds and get the chance to borrow a special Eco-friendly Prius for a day to do them in.

We had great fun making the video and doing our good deeds which were playing two surprise concerts for old people's homes in South London. CLICK HERE to watch the video and please share it. If you'd like to get involved and borrow a Prius to do a good deed, find out how HERE.

Summertime Swing

Summertime Swing flyerTickets are selling fast for Summertime Swing on Sunday 4th August in Sussex.

So far we have confirmed 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.

Last year we raised over £8000 for charity and we are going for beating that this year!

The earlybird discount has ended but advance price tickets, concessions and group discount tickets are all available from summertimeswing.eventbrite.co.uk.

Video News

King of JiveOur next epic music video for the song "King of Jive" is well under way and looking great so far! The song and video tell a Vegas fairy tale version of the life and times of Louis Prima and Keely Smith.

Check out the still from the video. In this scene, people line up to get into the lounge after hearing the hot sounds of the desert!

We are playing a game to get to 15,000 "likes" on our FaceBook page before it's release so if you want to see it, please send all your friends there and tell them to press "like"!

We have also been continuing our video blogs. In episode 8 Ian beams from snowy England to Sunny Florida and also has a pirate ship. CLICK HERE to see what we are on about! We also have a brand new ukulele tutorial, again with The Satin Dollz from Hollywood for the song "Tonight You Belong To Me". We have lots more coming so head over to our YouTube channel and subscribe at www.youtube.com/jiveaces to make sure you don't miss anything!
