King of the Swingers

Wait, what?! It's nearly March, how on earth did that happen??

New Videos!

We have two great new videos to entertain you!

The first is a special new video for "Bring Me Sunshine" which we made with the charity Solar Aid who aim to eradicate dangerous and toxic kerosene lamps in Africa by distributing solar powered lights. It's a great cause and obviously the song fits perfectly with their campaign!

If you haven't seen it then please hurry and share it as they have until March 1st to take advantage of UKAid's donation match where any funds raised will be doubled! Click HERE to watch and share.

Next up is a mini documentary of our first trip to the Viva Las Vegas Rockabilly Weekend in 2012. When we arrived we found it was almost a British invasion with lots of familiar faces and artists including Ricky Brawn from the Big Six, Si Cranstoun, Alex Bland and even the King of Viva, Tom Ingram is a Brit!

Check out the video HERE and don't forget we are returning to Viva Las Vegas in April for two shows, one in the main ballroom on Saturday night and a special exclusive show on Sunday called "Jives and Dollz" with the Satin Dollz from Hollywood. Info at www.vivlasvegas.net.

Big Jive All-Dayer 2014

Only a few days to go before the jumpin'est event of the year on March 1st in Worthing!

Also joining us as a special guest singer is the that blonde bombshell, Miss Corrinne Williams (right).

Along with The Swing Commanders, Jackson Sloan and the Rhythmtones, Cody "Boogie Boy" Lee and his band and from the USA, the honkin' sax of Detroit Gary Wiggins with the Paris Allstars, that is one line-up not to be missed!

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.

Last year it sold out so please don't wait till the day to book as we'd hate to turn you away!

CD List"January" Sale Still On

You are in luck, purely as we haven't had time to update the prices back to normal on our website so in essence the "January" sale is still on. It will change back soon though so take advantage of our tardiness now!

We have 10% off all albums and EPs, T-shirts are down from £12 to £10 and are available in men’s and women’s styles and a very special offer on our "Life is a Game" CD, it is only £6. All orders get free postage and packing!

Head over to www.jiveaces.com/store. The store is run through PayPal but you don not need a Paypal account to buy, you can use a normal credit or debit card.

If you'd like to pay by cheque then please email sales@jiveaces.com for details.
