Hello there!

We have some fantastic Jubilee news and plenty of upcoming gigs!

Diamond Jubilee Extravaganza

Quuen
The Jive Aces and The Swingtime Sweethearts
perform "Diamond Jubilee" to Her Majesty

After having performed in Bromley for some years now supporting the "Say No To Drug, Say Yes To Life" campaign and we were honoured to be chosen to headline the entertainment at the Royal Visit to the town recently.

We were joined by the Swingtime Sweethearts who performed the Diamond Jubilee song with us which was greeted with the Royal wave.

If you haven't seen the animated music video for the Diamond Jubilee song, go to is.gd/diamondjubileevid and check it out now.

You can also download the MP3 of the song for free from is.gd/jubileemp3.

We then were asked to perform at the famous Epsom Derby amidst all the glamour of the races, again attended by Her Majesty as part of the Jubilee celebrations. To see the photo gallery from Epsom, CLICK HERE.

To end the long and glorious weekend we headlined the main stage at Hyde Park just down the road from the palace to over 10,000 people.

Other acts included Stavros Flatley, The Loveable Rogues and Spellbound and the show was MCd by the inimitable Christopher Biggins. To see more pictures of the Hyde Park show CLICK HERE.

Summertime Swing

Summertime Swing flyerSummertime Swing on the 19th August is gearing up to be the biggest and best ever. With loads of special guests including Ray Gelato, Si Cranstoun, Toni Elizabeth Prima and the Swing Kids and with DJ Terry Elliott back to spin the wax it's going to be awesome! It takes place in East Grinstead, Sussex and starts at 3:00pm.

Tickets are £18 or £16 concession and groups of 10 or more in advance or £20 and £18 on the day.

As of this writing we are still looking for one more sponsor for the postcard we get delivered to 25,000 Sussex homes. Your logo and company details can be on the back, just email promo@jiveaces.com ASAP for details.

We'll also be releasing the new album "King of the Swingers" at the event too (see below) and as usual all the proceeds from the event will go to charity which will be presented in October. Last year e raised over £7000 which helped buy two ground support vehicles for the Sussex Air Ambulance.

"King of the Swingers" Album Release

King of the Swingers CDWe are very excited to announce that the new album, "King of the Swingers" will be released on 19th August at Summertime Swing. This album is a tribute to one of our musical heroes, Louis Prima, who with his on and off stage partner, Keely Smith, defined the Vegas lounge act with a fusion of the style of jazz with the energy of Rock n Roll.

The album features 15 tracks including a brand new original song called "King of Jive" as well as guest performances from Kenny Ball, Ray Gelato, Toni Elizabeth Prima, Rebecca Grant and more.

We are also working on the next music video so keep an eye on our FaceBook and Twitter pages for up-to-the-minute info. We may even need you as an extra!
