Another lively, fun night out at Jump Jive and Shout, the monthly retro and vintage style jive night with retro diva and vinyl Dj Jen Jackson spinning some of the very best in pulsating, energy driven 1940’s and 50’s rhythm and blues, jump jive, doo wop, boogie woogie, blues shouters and more – the roots of rock n roll.
Come and join us as we celebrate some truly great names in early American dance music: Louis Jordan, Wynonnie Harris, Etta James, Tiny Bradshaw, Ruth Brown, Ike Turner, Etta James, The Chords, Big Joe Turner, Little Richard and a host of others. Sizzlin’ sounds that rocked the juke joints, gin houses, rent parties, and juke boxes in Memphis, New Orleans, Harlem, and Chicago, all over America in fact, and even the Jamaican blues dances and domino clubs found in fifties Notting Hill when almost every house seemed to have a basement club. Dynamic music that changed the face of music forever. Real music with a beat. With all music played on vinyl the way they did it back then.
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 great to watch, write all their own songs and obviously enjoy what they do. Accomplished musicians with great chemistry The Devout Sceptics have their own retro sound that blends Americana, country, blues and rockabilly. Delightful lead vocalist Collette Winter gives the band a certain charm with that country twang in her voice and the raw emotion of rockabilly queens Janice Martin and Wanda Jackson.
Always a great night out at Jump Jive and Shout on the second Saturday of the month.
Smart dress or retro, vintage, glamour, forties, fifties and sixties appreciated.
