Hi there everyone,

Aces Are OK!

Berkeley Square BallSome hot news, fresh off the presses - The Jive Aces are featured in the last weeks copy of “OK” magazine. The band was photographed with X Factor singer Rhydian at the Berkeley Square Ball in London after being requested personally by Vince Power, entrepreneur and owner of the Pigalle Club and organiser of the event.

This top international Charity event raises money for the Princes' Trust. Also featured in the magazine are some of the guests that were entertained by the Aces at the star-studded bash including David Haye, Russell Brand, Anna Friel and Gwen Stefani amongst many others.

After the ball, the band headed straight off the Pigalle Club in Piccadilly to perform to a packed house for the official after party.

London Gets The Rhythm




What better way to start off the year than to spend the entire day outdoors in sub-zero temperatures filming a music video. Well, we couldn't think of one either so that's exactly what we did for our forthcoming single release for the song "London Rhythm" from our latest album, "Recipe For Rhythm"!

Starting at 6:00am on a rooftop in front of St Paul's in the City and progressing through various locations as the day went on including the Millennium Bridge, Southwark, Westminster and ending off as the light faded from usefulness in Marble Arch with a lot of pigeons (who may even make it into the edit, you never know!). We had a blast filming our biggest and highest budget production yet and we have lots more ideas for future videos lined up too.

Along for the shoot were Scott and Tanya from Swing Patrol who braved the cold and death defying rooftop heights to pull off some killer moves over the city and also the inimitable Mr and Mrs Hartley (aka GI-Jive) in their finest character performances yet!

The raw footage looks great and the video is being edited soon and will be released along with the single of "London Rhythm" in the near future and as soon as we have a date, you'll be the first to know.

Check out some of the stills here.
