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 & 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 witha 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, Hayley Westenra and most recently played for the late Queen Elizabeth.
The Jive Aces headlined (and sold-out) the first ever swing danceat the Royal Albert Hall and have bought the house down with their high energy stage show at thousands of festivals, theaters, dance halls and top events throughout Britain, Europe, the United States and beyond, over 30 countries in all.
Major events include: MontreuxJazz Festival, Glastonbury Festival, Berkeley Square Ball, RyderCup, Cannes Film Festival, Cork Jazz Festival, Grand Order of Water Rats Annual Ball and The London Season.
They have also made hundreds of TV and radio appearances including, recently, a residency on BBC Radio London and TV appearances on “Louis Spence’s Showbusiness,” “Come Dine With Me” and “Good Morning Los Angeles.” In 2012, the band were semi-finalists on “Britain’s Got Talent,” performing show-stopping versions of Jungle Book favorites “I Wanna Be Like You” and “Bare Necessities” wowing BGT judges Simon Cowell, David Walliams and Alesha Dixon, who said, “You are so joyful to watch, every single one of you. That was world class.”
Their music video, “Bring Me Sunshine,” has become a viral hit with nearly two million views on YouTube and received seven film festival awards including the prestigious “SilverTelly" Award.
