Welcome to Spring (at least in the northern hemisphere anyway!),
It's been a while since the last newsletter because loads of gigs got in the way so here is a brief round-up of recent and upcoming stuff...

Easter Special CD Offer

As you probably saw from our last mailing we now have our jackets back in stock and they have been proving very popular once again. We only have very limited numbers in each size so please email sales@jiveaces.com if you want one quickly!

Also, we have a special offer on for our CDs, in case you are missing any in the collection. If you order by 28th March you can get any three of our albums for just £25 including P&P!

As a reminder, here is a list of our full length albums (i.e. not including our two E.P. length CDs):

  • Spread a Little Happiness
  • King of the Swingers:
    A Salute To Louis Prima
  • Amazing Adventures
  • Recipe For Rhythm
  • Dance All Night (compilation)
  • Life is a Game
  • Planet Jive (SOLD OUT)
  • Bolt from the Blue
  • Our Kinda Jive

You can only get this special offer by emailing sales@jiveaces.com as it is not available through the website. Of course you can still purchase individual albums, E.P.s and T-shirts from www.jiveaces.com/store.

The Big Jive
All-Dayer '16/'17

A massive thanks to all our bands; Rebecca Grant, Earl Jackson, Laura B, The Barnstompers and The Devil's Cut Combo and also to our DJs (Terry Elliott, Gypsy John and Slick Nick), everyone who helped plug the day and sell tickets(Peter Stockwell the champion!), all our stalls and caterers, the venue staff at Worthing Theatres and especially to all of you who came and danced till your feet were sore!

Next year's date is Saturday April 25th, 2017. Tickets will be available soon with a special early-bird discount too for the first time!

To see the full facebook gallery of pictures from the event, click HERE.

The date for next year is Saturday 25th February 2017, 1pm to 1am again at the fabulous Worthing Assembly Hall in Sussex. We already have the line-up sorted and it's another great selection of band's to keep you on the floor for the whole day!

Joining us next year are Jackson Sloan and his band with some romping rhythm and blues, The Kingcats who are trailblazing across the scene with their red hot rock n roll, Miss Annie and the Midnight Shift, the south's powerful new jump blues combo and Down for the Count with their ultra danceable big band sounds.

Plus we have DJs Terry Elliott, Voodoo Doll and Kalamazoo Colin to keep the floor full between bands and vintage stalls, food and bar all day and lots more.

Early bird tickets are just £20 available NOW until the 1st September from www.worthingtheatres.co.uk or call 01903 206 206. After that the tickets will go up to the advance price (which is still cheaper than the door price).

 

Summertime Swing Early Bird Tickets

We now have the line-up for Summertime Swing on Sunday 7th August! Crowd favourites, the mad Swede Gunhild Carling and the boy who's "Got Whole World In His Hands", Mr Laurie London and now star of hit West end musical "Beautiful, The Carole King Story" miss Cassidy Janson are all returning due to popular demand plus we have newcomer and long time friend Mr Maurizio "Big Daddy" Meterangelo from Italy's finest jumping swing orchestra, The Billy Bros.!

You can get early-bird tickets right now at www.jiveaces.com/summertimeswingtill the end of April then its the usual advance price tickets so hurry!

There will also be top DJs, vintage stalls, classic vehicles, a huge dance floor, raffle and more AND all the proceeds will be going to yet to be names charities.

USA Tour

It's no joke but we start our next USA tour on 1st April taking in WI, ME, MN, CO, KS, MO, IA, IN, SD, DC and PA!

We're being joined by that gorgeous lass from the Satin Dollz, Makinna Ridgway (pictured with Ian at Viva Las Vegas)
