Popular swing band, The Jive Aces, return to the Royal Hippodrome, Eastbourne on Friday 10 February at 8pm.
Legendary swing, jive and skiffle group, The Jive Aces, are renowned worldwide for their high-energy music and spectacular stage show. They are perhaps best known as the first live band to reach the final rounds of “Britain’s Got Talent” and for their award winning viral video, “Bring Me Sunshine”, which has 3 million views online and is so uplifting it’s even been prescribed by a doctor!
This swinging sextet average 300 shows a year and have performed for The Queen, as well as working with Van Morrison and John Travolta. They’ve played to capacity crowds at The Royal Albert Hall, Buckingham Palace, Glastonbury Festival, London Olympics and have graced stages in 40 countries, including major theatre tours in the USA.
They famously cheered up a grumpy Simon Cowell and wowed the judges on “BGT”. Other TV appearances include: “Strictly Come Dancing”, “Children in Need” “Good Day Los Angeles” and “The Alan Titchmarsh Show”.
Guest singer for the tour is Amy Baker, a sensational young singer from Portsmouth, whose warm, jazzy vocals invoke such legends as Keely Smith, Ella Fitzgerald and Peggy Lee. Her debut album has been getting airplay on BBC Radio 2.
