Saturday, April 8, 2017 at 7:30 PM
Britain’s Got Talent stars, The Jive Aces, are the UK’s No. 1 Jive & Swing band. Renowned for their high energy Jump Jive and swing music and spectacular stage show, the band’s repertoire stretches from the timeless tunes of the swing era to the glitz of the Rat Pack, with a dash of rhythm and blues, swing and jazz. They feature songs made famous by such greats as Louis Prima, Cab Calloway, Benny Goodman, Bobby Darin, Louis Armstrong, Sammy Davis Jr. and Ella Fitzgerald, along with a selection of superb originals taken from their albums. An incredibly in demand sextet, they have worked with John Travolta, Van Morrison, The Proclaimers, Keely Smith and Hayley Westenra, and most recently played for Her Majesty The Queen.
