Gig Guide

King of the Swingers

Good day form the USA!
We're in the middle of recording a new album in the USA as well as performing at some fantastic venues including the beautiful Cicada Club in LA and the Viva Las Vegas Rockabilly weekend in, you guessed it, Las Vegas but here is some news to catch up on...

Coming Up

We hit the ground running as we get home next week with a last minute show with Surrey Jive on the 26th! Then we return to our favourite festival, the Derry Jazz Festival, then our regular event for WWII veterans at RAF Hendon on the 5th May.

We then have two special shows in the South East you need to know about! Firstly we are at the Woodville Hall in Gravesend, Kent for a special dance on the 10th May with DJ Gypsy John.

This venue has a gorgeous dance floor! Tickets and info can be found at: www.woodville.co.uk.

Then on Sunday 11th May we are doing a special charity show at the beautiful Rivoli Ballroom in London with the Three Belles and DJ Sizzlin' Jim for Help For Heroes.

This is in conjunction with the guys who are doing the Mons charity march and all proceeds (along with our single) go to Help For Heroes (see below)

Doors open at 2:00pm and tickets are available now from mons2014.eventbrite.co.uk.

All details can also be found in the gig guide below.


Two New Charity Singles!

We have not one but TWO songs we recorded exclusively for charity out right now!

Firstly we have recorded a special swingin' version of "Pack Up Your Troubles/It's A Long Way To Tipperary" with The Three Belles for the Mons 2014 WWI recreation march in aid of Help For Heroes. You can download the song for a minimum of just £1 (or more if you like, hint, hint) from HERE.

You can also find out more about the march and donate directly to Help For Heroes for this at www.justgiving.com/mons2014 or email monsmarch2014@gmail.com for more info.

Secondly, our friend and legendary radio DJ Mike Read introduced us to the Jonty Stevens and Ian Ashpitel from the Olivier nominated "Eric and Little Ern" show.

We teamed up with them to record a brand new version of "Bring Me Sunshine" in aid of the Berkshire Flood Relief charity which you can download from iTunes here:


Summertime Swing 10th Anniversary - Early-bird Almost Over

This year is our 10th anniversary of the event and joining us are Toni Elizabeth Prima, Laurie London, Ray Gelato plus we have legendary radio DJ Mike Read as MC and a special appearance by the East Grinstead Ukulele Club plus more to be confirmed!

We want to make it the biggest and best ever. It is on Sunday 3rd August at 3pm at Saint Hill Manor, East Grinstead, West Sussex.

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

New Jive Aces Merch!

We currently have eight albums and two E.P.s available as well as T-shirts in all sizes and both men's round-neck and women’s V neck and round neck styles in stock.

We are also working on two brand new albums, one of which is entitled "Spread A Little Happiness" and will be out later this year.

Next up we are getting these great 50's style baseball jackets made. They are finest quality wool and leather and feel great. This is Ian in the first prototype. What do you think?

We are also hard at work on a much requested item, that's right, not long to go until you are able to purchase your very own Jive Aces live concert DVD!

It will feature 14 tracks, some special guest appearances and also our music videos as bonus material including "Bring Me Sunshine" and "King of Jive".

The DVD will be available in both PAL (UK/EU) and NTSC (USA/CAN) from our website and from shows.

All our CDs are available from our website at www.jiveaces.com/store or from Amazon, iTunes and other retailers. The T-shirts are only available direct from our web store or from gigs.

If you run a stall/shop/online store/dance and would like to stock The Jive Aces CDs and T-shirts, please contact sales@publicrelations.com.
