Another lively, fun night out at Jump Jive and Shout, the monthly jive night with vinyl dj Jen Jackson spinning pulsating, energy driven 1940’s and 50’s rhythm and blues, jump jive, doo wop, boogie woogie, blues shouters and more. This dynamic music laid the foundations for what would later become known as "rock 'n' roll" and changed the face of pop music for ever. It’s great for dancing, there is nothing added or taken away and it’s fun too.
Join us as we celebrate some truly great names in American roots music: Louis Jordan, Wynonnie Harris, Etta James, Tiny Bradshaw, Ruth Brown, The Chords, Big Joe Turner, Little Richard and a host of others.
Live on the night and making a welcome return to Jump Jive and Shout is the stylish London based outfit The Devout Sceptics - a band that performs well, are wonderful to watch, write all theie own songs and obviously enjoy what they do. Accomplished musicians The Devout Sceptics have their own sound which blends Americana, country, blues and rockabilly and with Collette Winter on lead vocals this definitely has a certain charm and is not to be missed.
Always a great night out at Jump Jive and Shout on the second Saturday of the month.
