Summertime Swing 2006
The most Successful yet!

Well, it happened again. The Jive Aces very own annual charity concert was another smash hit this year, breaking all the records of previous years. nearly 800 people dancing, listening, eating and drinking in the blazing sunshine on Sunday the 2nd July. We had the highest number of vintage vehicles (including a 1927 Rolls Royce, check out the picture below) too and highest number of burgers and hotdogs consumed, not to mention highest number of raffle tickets sold (due to the rather excellent raffle prizes organized by me - ahem! -Alex). All in all a great day for everyone!

We were also joined on stage by a pair of loveley ladies, Bryony for a version of Laverne Baker's "On Revival Day" and Laura for Ruth Brown's "She Treats Your Daughter Mean". Then we had them both back on stage for what would normally be a duet but which we've had to rename "triet" for Louis and Keeley's "Nothin' Too Good For My Baby".

We raiseda whopping £2000 for charity which is going to the Royal British Legion and the City of London Police Childrens Charity.

A huge thanks to the staff at Saint Hill Manor and the L. Ron Hubbard Foundation for hosting and helping us put on the event. You can visit the beautiful Manor any time of year, go to www.sainthillmanor.org.uk for more details. Thanks to Terry Elliott for doing a great job as MC and providing the tunes for us between live sets, the Jiving Lindy Hoppers for some dazzling dance displays (www.jivinglindyhoppers.com), Darren and Claire from First Move Dance for dance lessons, Ian "GI Jive" Hartley for his guest DJ spot (www.gi-jive.co.uk), all the raffle prize donators including Camelot Castle Hotel (check out the fantastic hotel at www.camelotcastle.com), G&G Vitamins (www.gandginfo.com), Jeff Nutkins at the Shoreham Aircraft museum (www.aviartnutkins.com), C.R. Wickendon (www.sweetsuk.co.uk), Martells (www.martells.co.uk), Le Gourmet, Tulleys Farm (www.tulleysfarm.com) and also to everyone who helped promote the event and sells tickets.

Next year will be even bigger and better so keep an eye out for the date which we will publish pretty soon.
