Another lively, fun night out at Jump Jive and Shout the friendly, monthly jive night with retro diva and vinyl queen dj Jeniffer Jackson spinning some of the very best in pulsating, energy driven 1940’s and 50’s rhythm ‘n’ blues, jump jive, boogie woogie, doo wop, vocal group harmony, blues shouters and more – the roots of rock and roll.
Join us as we celebrate the wonderful, dynamic sounds of the greats and unsung heroes that influenced what would later become known as “rock ‘n’ roll”; Little Richard, Louis Jordan, Lavern Baker, Big Joe Turner, Cab Calloway, Wynonnie Harris, The Chords, Ruth Brown, Lucky Millinder and many others. Sizzlin’ sounds that rocked the juke boxes, gin houses, fish fries and rent parties all over America. Music heard in early New Orleans, Chicago, Memphis and Harlem.
All music played on vinyl the way they did it back then. Plus live music from the award winning harpist, blues singer, songwriter and musician Errol Linton.
Always a great night out at Jump Jive and Shout on the second Saturday of the month.
Smart dress, glamour, forties, fifties and sixties retro/vintage, or use the TV show Mad Men, or films The Girl Can’t Help it and Cadillac Records for your inspiration.
