May 18: Peachy Beat

Peachy Beat will be providing the live music on May 18th 2019 at The Rivoli. Peachy Beat came about through a shared love of Rock 'n' Roll -

the band lives and breathes the music of the 1950s and 60s, between them having performed in many No. 1 National shows including Dreamboats
& Petticoats, Cilla The Musical and Roll Over Beethoven. Their repertoire features the biggest hits of an era that knew how to party,
from the classic Rock ’n'Roll of Elvis and Little Richard to the unforgettable sound of The Everly Brothers, Motown’s finest and much
more. Their female lead vocalist doubles on tenor sax and with their signature three part harmonies, Peachy Beat recreate that timeless
jiving groove that is guaranteed to keep you on the dance floor.

So come along to the iconic chandeliered, totally unique Rivoli Ballroom, soak up the atmosphere, enjoy the music, and dance the night away.

JIVE CLASS FOR BEGINNERS
As usual the night kicks off with a jive class aimed at beginners (8:30pm-9pm) followed by two sets from the band and DJs filling in.   

FUTURE DATES: Tickets are on sale for the following....each night features a different live band.                               


June 15: JG & The Ultimates

Back for a second appearance this year after storming the Rivoli in February, JG & the Ultimates provide the blistering rockin’ rhythm & blues on June 15th 2019. The band is fronted by guitarist, Jay Gipson who has been performing for 30 years in a variety of bands, guises & genres. If anyone knows
how to put on a show and keep the dance floor full, it’s Jay.

“It wasn’t until I began to play at the many vintage events that I discovered there was this whole community of people who danced jive,
lindy and swing and were also so enthused and dedicated to the ‘Vintage’ sound, dance, era & lifestyle.”

Says Jay, “I’ve always loved ‘blues, jazz & soul’ of all kinds and it’s what I’ve listened to and been into the most since I first picked up a guitar. But
 it wasn’t until I began to play at the many vintage events that I discovered there was this whole community of people who danced jive, lindy and swing and were also so enthused and dedicated to the ‘Vintage’ sound, dance, era and lifestyle.”

The music and style of ‘JG & the Ultimates’ is immersed in the retro sounds of the 50’s & 60’s but with a strong leaning towards the bluesy side of rock &
roll, jump blues & R&B. The band comprises seasoned musicians who also have played and play for a long list of other well known artists including the Drifters, The Four Tops, Mike Sanchez, The Glen Miller Orchestra, Laura B, The Drugstore Cowboys, Si Cranstoun, Dexter Shaw, West Weston, Ray Gelato, Jools Holland Orchestra, JD McPherson and Barrence Whitfield.
