The Jive Aces

The band are renowned for their hot, swinging music and high-energy stage show playing songs made famous by such greats as Bobby Darin, Louis Prima and Sammy Davis Jnr as well as a selection of superb originals.
After the viral online success of their music video for “Bring Me Sunshine” which has clocked up millions of views and seven film festival awards they decided to dedicate the whole of their new album to making people happy. “Spread A Little Happiness“ was recorded in Hollywood, California and features many classic feel good songs as well as several originals guaranteed to bring a smile.
The Jive Aces have brought the house down at thousands of festivals, theatres, and dance halls throughout the UK, Europe, the USA and beyond, also making hundreds of TV and radio appearances world-wide.
