Let the fun begin at Jump Jive and Shout the lively, monthly retro and vintage jive party night with retro diva and vinyl queen DJ Jeniffer Jackson spinning some of the very best in pulsating 40’s and 50’s energy driven rhythm and blues, jump jive, doo wop, boogie woogie, blues shouters and more. Dynamic music from some great names that laid the foundation for what would later be known as rock n roll. Come and celebrate the music of the pioneers like: Louis Jordan, Little Richard, Ruth Brown, Big Joe Turner, The Chords, Etta James, Ike Turner, Lucky Millinder and many others. Sizzlin’ sounds that rocked the juke joints, gin houses, rent parties and juke boxes all over America, from Memphis to Harlem, from Chicago to New Orleans. The roots of rock n roll. With all music played on vinyl, the way the did it back then.
The sensational Jimmy Hammond makes a welcome return to London with his exhilarating live show. Dressed head to toe in original American vintage threads, singing and playing pumping piano driven boogie woogie and rhythm and blues from the 40's and 50's. A power-house performer that captures the spirit, passion and energy of the pre rock 'n' roll era. Come and watch Jimmy Hammond as he chops, slices, hammers and pounds those 88 piano keys. This is one live show you will not want to miss.
Smart dress appreciated or retro, rockin’, vintage, 1940’s, 50’s, 60’s, or use Mad Men, Hairspray (both versions), Sapphire and The girl can’t help it etc for your inspiration.
