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 off? 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 is such a wonderfully nostalgic blast from 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.

February 09: JG & The ULTIMATES

We’re thrilled to present JG & the Ultimates on February 9th 2019.  This truly rockin’ rhythm & blues band is fronted by guitarist, Jay Gipson. Jay has been performing now for 30 years in a variety of bands, guises & genres.

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.

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.”

Our February Jive Party will feature a beginners’ jive class and DJs to kick off the evening, followed by two sets from the band.
