"Opening up with The Jive Aces, the energy level quickly soars through the roof as the band starts stomping with some infectious, high-speed swing music that parallels the energy of '50s rock 'n' roll with all the silk and glamour of '40s swing. Truly modern, and making no claims otherwise, the band seems to be on a caffeine high as they shoot and dance around the notes with such clarity. I’ll give it an A." In Music We Trust — CD review
“Jive Ac...es rocked us, literally. If they were playing at any event they would raise the roof with their quirky banana suits and energetic moves.” Dean “Midas” Maynard — Huffington Post
Britain’s Got Talent stars, The Jive Aces, are the UK’s No.1 Jive & Swing band. Renowned for their high energy jump jive music and spectacular stage show, they famously put a grumpy Simon Cowell in a good mood.
The band features songs made famous by greats such as Louis Prima, Bobby Darin, Cab Calloway, Dean Martin, Louis Armstrong and Sammy Davis Jr, as well as some superb originals. This extremely in-demand sextet has worked with John Travolta, Van Morrison, The Proclaimers, Chick Corea, Keely Smith and even Status Quo and have performed for HM The Queen and HRH Prince Philip.
Having become the first ever band to reach the semi finals of Britain's Got Talent in 2012 following up with a performance for Her Majesty The Queen as part of the Diamond Jubilee celebrations and performances for both the Olympic and Paralympic celebrations, The Jive Aces have truly established themselves as the UK's top jive & swing band.
Together for over a decade, this extremely popular six piece group have performed at thousands of festivals, theatres and events throughout the UK, Europe and USA, as well as Japan, Israel, South Africa, Morocco and the Caribbean, 30 countries in all. The Jive Aces are renowned for their high energy jump jive music (the exciting sound where swing meets rock ‘n roll) and spectacular stage show.
They combine a mixture of fresh arrangements of swing/jive/R&B classics — songs made famous by such greats as Louis Prima, Cab Calloway, Bobby Darin, Louis Armstrong, Dean Martin, Big Joe Turner and Sammy Davis Jr — along with a selection of superb swinging originals taken from their studio albums.
The Jive Aces have worked with many of the top names in the business, including John Travolta, Status Quo, Isaac Hayes, Van Morrison, Count Basie Orchestra, Keely Smith, Priscilla Presley, Buddy Greco, Kirstie Allie, Kenny Ball, Chuck Berry, Tony Christie and Lee Evans to name just a few.
With their high energy music, bright stage suits, wild stage show, irresistible humour and sheer professionalism, the Jive Aces will quickly get any audience on their feet — or dancing in their seat! Each and every show is guaranteed to go with a swing!
