Coming Up

Coming up we have several afternoon shows at the Ideal Home Show in London.

We are also making a guest appearance at Eric and Little Ern's final show of their tour on the 15th March in Windsor.

On the 16th March there is a special offer offer on tickets at the Bob Hope Theatre for both afternoon and evening shows if you quote "EMAIL OFFER" by phone only. We'll be joined by guest crooner Shane Hampsheir and our gorgeous friends with the golden voices, The Three Belles!

On 22nd March we are playing the after party for the L. Ron Hubbard birthday event at Saint Hill Manor, East Grinstead. As you probably know the Jive Aces are all Scientology so if you've ever been interested what it is all about, this is the perfect opportunity to find out about the founder. The event starts at 7:00pm and the after party at approx 10pm, both are free and all are welcome. Contact Carleene at fanclub@jiveaces.com for info.

Then in April we're off the the USA to finish an album, shoot a new music video and also have shows in Washington DC, LA, Phoenix, Ventura and the Viva Las Vegas Rockabilly Weekend!

Check out all the details in the Gig Guide below!

Truth About Drugs Campaign

As you probably know we have supported a very important public information campaign for several years about the dangers of street drugs. In recent weeks we have been getting a lot of press covering our events up and down the country.

Pack Up Your Troubles for Help For Heroes!

Our mate DJ Sizzlin' Jim is embarking upon a recreation on the WWI Mons March in full replica WWI uniform and kit in aid of Help for Heroes.

We think this is a great idea to raise money for a great cause so we teamed up with our friends the Three Belles to give him a helping hand. We will be recording a medley of "Pack Up Your Troubles/It's A Long Way To Tipperary" to help raise money and awareness for the campaign and we are also holding a special matinee swing dance at London's favourite dance hall, The Rivoli Ballroom on Sunday 11th May.

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

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.
