Fancy putting on your glad rags and dancing in the fabulous retro Rivoli Ballroom – with a live band, DJs and a beginners’ jive lesson to kick the evening into swing? Our ever-popular monthly Jive Parties have a lively buzz, and the best jive, swing and original R&B music around. Jive Party is for beginners and experts alike. Or you could just come along as many do and soak up the atmosphere, enjoy the music, watch the dancing and drink at pub prices in one of the most iconic venues around. No pressure to dance - but you’ll probably want to.  

The Rivoli really is such a wonderfully nostalgic blast from the best of the past and when combined with the authentic 40's and 50's sounds of live bands and amazing djing between the sets at Jive Party it really does turn into a magical night.

A bit about The Cadillac Kings

“Now here’s that rare thing – a British band who can cut the mustard! Powered along by a top class rhythm section, with wild harp and standout guitar. Stick in their authentic hollering vocalist and you’ve got a pretty hot combo! They’re good!!” – Ken Smith, Red Lick Records

Six of the UK’s top blues & roots musicians, playing hell for leather on the Rivoli stage – a recipe for an unforgettable night if you love your jive, rhythm n blues. The Cadillac Kings play music inspired by the sounds and styles of the ’40s & ’50s, with a mix of mostly original songs and a few well-chosen covers from the likes of T-Bone Walker, Roy Brown & Champion Jack Dupree. The Cadillac Kings are firm favourites on both the blues & jump-jive scenes, and tailor-made for
 the Rivoli Ballroom.

“Breath-taking West Coast swing, hugely enjoyable with brilliant vocals, excellent harp, guitar and keyboards and a rock solid rhythm section. In a word –
exhilarating!”
Lionel Ross, Blues in Britain Magazine (Dragon Blues Fest. Wrexham)

“Entertaining, authentic & infectious – The Cadillac Kings’ high energy swinging R&B is enough to put a foaming head on a pint of real ale! This is pure good time music that left The Darlington Arts Centre audience dizzy, long after they’d left the building.”
Darrell Parsons, Blues in Britain


 “The Cadillac Kings have amassed a large following which is entirely down to their own special brand of no-nonsense musicianship and sheer hard work. On-stage you get nothing less than 100 % from this band.

These guys swing like they were born in the trees!”
Judge Jones, Blues Freepress, Hull


*****

Jive DJs, a beginner’s jive class, 2 licenced bars and the amazing interior of the Rivoli add to the enjoyment of the night.
