Summertime Swing 2012Bring Me Sunshine Anniversary COMPETITIONGig Guide

Hello there!

It's been ages since the last full newsletter, and that's because it's been hectic from selling out Ronnie Scott's four times in a row to international trips taking us from France to Florida! There is a lot of stuff coming up that will be revealed soon but in the meantime...

Summertime Swing 2012

The hottest event of the Summer is being held on Sunday 19th August this year (later than usual due to the Olympics) and as usual starts at 3:00pm at Saint Hill Manor in East Grinstead West Sussex.

A limited number of earlybird discount tickets are available for only £15 until the end of March from summertimeswing.eventbrite.co.uk so grab them quick!

Confirmed in the lineup apart from our good selves are Toni Elizabeth Prima and Si Cranstoun with more great acts TBC. Also back with us is DJ supremo Terry Elliott who'll be taking us all on his sentimental journey!

And as usual we'll have the huge BBQ, vintage vehicles, retro stalls and loads more with all proceeds going to charity. Last year we raised £7000 which helped buy two support vehicles for the Sussex Air Ambulance so lets see if we can beat that!

Bring Me Sunshine COMPETITION!

Bring Me SunshineTo celebrate the one-year anniversary of our award winning "Bring Me Sunshine" video we have teamed up with Vivien of Holloway for a fab competition. All you have to do is email the answers the following two questions to fanclub@jiveaces.com before March 31st and we'll draw one lucky winner out of a hat. The awesome prizes are a pair of tickets to Summertime Swing (details above) and a whopping £79 voucher for anything in their store, WOW!!!!

The questions are:
1. How many times does Ian sing the word "Sunshine" in the "Bring Me Sunshine" video (which you can see at is.gd/sunshine)
2. How many different dress styles are available in the pirate fabric from www.vivienofholloway.com?

Don't delay, enter today!
