The Summer is just about over and the temperature is easing up but our schedule certainly isn't!
We have had a busy few weeks including playing at some great Festivals such as Twinwood and Route 66 in Switzerland as well as the first Big Jive All-Dayer in the Netherlands and a music video shoot in Paris. Read on for the latest news and up-coming shows (including our next gig this Saturday at Horatio's on Palace Pier Brighton with a £5 discount if you use promo code "alex" at checkout!).
The Big Jive All-Dayer Netherlands
We had a great first-ever international version of the Big Jive All-Dayer in The Netherlands on 3rd September.
Thanks to our co-promoters Pelikaan Vintage Events and all the bands, DJs and especially the audience who showed up for 12 hours of fine jiving!
We now have some great photos and video of the event!
Above are a few shots but you can see the whole album by CLICKING HERE.
You can also see a bunch of videos from each of the bands on videographer Peter Aert's channel HERE.
Plans are afoot for next year but in the meantime...
