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.

March 16: The REVOLUTIONAIRES – Sizzlin’ Hot 1950’s R&B Combo

Established within the ‘hotbed’ of the North East music scene in the UK, the Revolutionaires power out jumpin’ hot rhythm & blues in their own indomitable hard hitting style.

Think Louis Jordan, Big Joe Turner, Little Richard, Chuck Berry and Roy Brown. Then mix in some harder and more aggressive influences from Stevie Ray Vaughan, Duke Robillard, Jools Holland and Mike Henderson – now you’re getting close to the sound.


Over the last decade The Revolutionaires have established themselves on the UK and European Rockin’ circuit, as well as the Blues scene. They have toured
extensively both home and abroad, performing at festivals alongside artistes such as Jerry Lee Lewis, Sting, Tom Jones, Hugh Laurie, Jimmie Vaughan, Robert Cray, Walter Trout, Eric Bibb, Albert Lee, Snake Davis and Dave Edmunds.

The band has recorded five CDs to date, containing a collection of Hot Rockin’ R&B tracks. Each CD captures the ‘rawness’ and sheer energy of the band, who like to give their performances a ‘hard-edged’ vibe!

So ‘get yourself down’ to the Rivoli on March 16th, ’cause, in the words of the Ronnie Molleen tune…


….” We’ll be rockin’ up a storm tonight! “


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

April 20

Oo-Bop-Sh’Bam will be providing the live music on April 20th 2019 at The Rivoli - without a doubt one of the most exciting and energetic RnB, Boogie, Jump Blues bands in Europe. It’s time to relive the good time spirit of ‘rent party’ rhythm n blues and revive the days of honkin’ hollerin’ rock and roll from the 50’s.

The band has picked up lots of work over the 13 years they’ve been together, much of it on the jive circuit, as they play at just the right tempos for all kinds of jivers to take to the floor. They travel the length and breadth of the UK to play at the best jive events and festivals including Twinwood, Derry Jazz Festival, Northern Ireland, Silda Jazz Festival in Norway, Cognac Blues Festival in France, The Guiness Jazz Festival in Cork Southern Ireland, TanJazz, Tanjier, Morocco, Goodwood Revival and Glorious Goodwood.

The Musicians, all top professionals, have worked with Freddy Mercury, Joe Jackson, Allison Moyet, Hubert Sumlin, Eric Clapton, Robert Plant, Scotty Moore, Alvin Lee, Tony Bennet, Tom Jones and many more.

JIVE CLASS FOR BEGINNERS
