Our ever-popular monthly Jive Parties have a lively buzz, and the best jive, swing and original R&B music. Jive Party is for beginners and experts alike. Or you could just come along and soak up the atmosphere, enjoy the music and watch the dancing and drink at pub prices in one of the most iconic venues around.

The Rivoli Ballroom is one of the few remaining original decor ballrooms remaining in London. An amazing and nostalgic venue. A blast from the best of the past. You'll have seen the Rivoli many times before without even realising it, it's regularly used in films, TV and music videos.

About June's band - The Cadillac Kings

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.

“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

“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)

The evening was such a happy and positive time. My partner and I had not danced together in this kind of way before and we had no previous jive experience so it was wonderful not to feel intimidated but rather to enjoy a lovely freedom to have a go! visited The Rivoli Ballroom on 20 May 2017

A brilliant night as always. A fabulous band and great dancers in a gorgeous venue. The only thing that could improve it would be air conditioning! Sophie visited The Rivoli Ballroom on 20 May 2017

Keeping the jive alive! It's fabulous and one of my favourite venues for dancing with probably the best live band acoustics. People make the effort to dress for The Rivoli Ballroom and the bands are top notch. Even bar prices are reasonable. As Jackson Sloan says "Keeping the jive alive". Never stop.

Thanks for your lovely comments Iain. The Rivoli Ballroom is indeed a special venue. The band tonight is particularly suited for the Rivoli too.

Amazing venue and night. Been to this place twice and always leave with a smile on my face and an unforgettable experience. Looking to book my 3rd time now, jive on.
