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.

October 19: laura b & her band

Jive Party favourites and why not?? When you’re guaranteed a night of superb rockin’ and honkin’ rhythm and blues from Laura B and her septet, in the upbeat style of Ruth Brown, Big Maybelle and Lavern Baker.

This eight-piece good time, Rhythm and Blues/Swing band features the extraordinarily talented Laura B on vocals and some of the best authentic sounding rhythm and blues players in Europe whose credentials speak for themselves. Comprised of members from many bands who have played the circuit across the UK, Europe, USA and even Japan. Laura’s all-star band includes members of Ocean’s Seven, Juke Joint Jump, Sugar Ray’s Flying Fortress, The Big Six, Alabama Slammers, The Mike Sanchez Band and Jools Holland’s R’n’B Orchestra, to name but a few. Also featuring the amazing Chris Corcoran on guitar, Lady Laura and the guys guarantee a big beat sound and performance to match many of the great R’n’B artistes of the fifties.

As usual the night kicks off with a jive class aimed at beginners followed by two sets from the band and DJs filling in.

November 16: Miss annie & the midnight shift

Fronted by vocalist Miss Annie, The Midnight Shift are a Bournemouth-based 1950’s-style 7-piece roots rhythm & Blues band, featuring tenor and baritone saxes, guitar, piano, doublebass and drums – plus highly stylish Miss Annie whose incredible voice is like Ruth Brown, Etta James, Irma Thomas, Lavern Baker and Annie Laurie rolled into one! The combination of Miss Annie’s belting voice, the wailing horns and the thumping rhythm section gives this band an authentic sound of explosive 1950s Rhythm & Blues!!! Not a night to be missed if you love your jive and original roots R&B.

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

December 21: Sugar t & the swells

Sugar T and the Swells are one of the slickest, most entertaining bands on the circuit! They deliver classic R’n’B and Rock’n’Roll of the 50s and 60s – the music of Etta James, Dinah Washington, Little Richard, Johnny Otis, Ray Charles et al – with a 21st century attitude. Equally at home in sweaty dive bars and clubs, dance halls, festivals, or swanky upscale private events, Sugar T and the Swells are guaranteed to get any audience off their feet and onto the dance floor.

The Swells were formed by bassist “Thump” Thompson (founder member of The Darts, who cut his teeth playing with John Lee Hooker and Howlin’
Wolf) and trumpeter and front man Ralph Lamb – a born showman who has worked with a host of stars including Tom Jones and Jamiroquai.  Check them out here.

JANUARY 18 2020: PEACHY BEAT

Peachy Beat will be providing the live music on our first Jive Party of 2020 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.

As usual the night kicks off with a jive class aimed at beginners followed by two sets from the band and DJs filling in.
