The Jive Aces
The Jive Aces are renowned for their high-energy swinging music and spectacular live show and have toured in over 40 countries worldwide. They strive to spread smiles and cheer with their swinging music and classic vintage style from crooning smooth ballads to blasting honking rhythm and blues. Having played for Her Majesty the Queen, selling out the Royal Albert Hall, becoming the first band to reach the finals of Britain’s Got Talent or just entertaining at one of their 250 live shows a year, they continue to prove that they are the UK’s No.1 Jive & Swing band!
With their hallmark yellow suits and a repertoire that stretches from the timeless tunes of the swing era to the glitz of the Rat Pack with a dash of classic rock ‘n’ roll, they perform songs in their unique upbeat style by such great artists as Louis Prima, Bobby Darin, Louis Armstrong, Sammy Davis Jr. and Ella Fitzgerald as well as a selection of superb original tunes.
They have worked with many celebrities such as Van Morrison, Chick Corea (who performs two songs in their Recipe for Rhythm album), Kenny Ball (appearing on their King of the Swingers album, Kenny’s last ever recording), John Travolta, The Proclaimers, The Undertones, Status Quo, Keely Smith, Jamie Cullum, Priscilla Presley and Kirstie Allie to name just a few.
When the Jive Aces released a music video for their upbeat version of a much-loved theme song in the UK, Bring Me Sunshine it immediately went viral and to date has over 3.6 million views on YouTube. It is so popular in fact that a Doctor in Seattle has actually prescribed the video to his patients to cure the blues! Their version of the song has also been used in countless TV shows including twice on Strictly Come Dancing.
The band are now glad to be back on the road doing what they do best, delivering their high-energy vintage style entertainment to audiences of all ages!
