    The Jive Aces are frequently commended by fellow professionals for their high standards and professionalism both on and off stage. As the stage manager of the Royal Albert Hall wrote, after a show-stopping appearance, - “Thank you for your wonderful performance at the Royal Albert Hall. The Jive Aces were a pleasure to work with and I know you were a big hit”. 

    The Jive Aces have worked alongside many of the top names in the business, including John Travolta, Isaac Hayes, Van Morrison, Count Basie Orchestra,  Buddy Greco, Kirstie Allie, Acker Bilk, Jack Dee, David Suchet, Lee Evans and Juliette Lewis to name just a few.

Each and every show is guaranteed to go with a swing! See www.jiveaces.com for more information.


    "These professional young musicians came on cold to an early evening audience and were simply sensational. The Jive Aces manage great freshness yet maintain an authentic accurate sound. Full Marks." 

    The Stage

    “Now back by popular demand for an incredible fourth consecutive year at Montreux Jazz Festival, their explosive live shows have become legendary”

    Montreux Jazz Festival

    "Life Is A Game by The Jive Aces has the most important ingredients: It is musically brilliant, it is great to listen to, songwriting is exceptional, the arrangements of the covers are superb. The Jive Aces really are a band of very talented musicians. The album gives loads of joy and pleasure."

     "The night would not have been the same without the fantastic experience that was the Jive Aces. They rocked onto the stage in yellow suits and slicked back hair. In no time the hall was transformed into a jiving, cavorting, dance floor with everyone exhilarated by the entertaining physical stunts and extraordinary playing of the pianist. The night flew by and in no time we were wishing that the encores would go on till morning. They are truly wonderful performers. Not to be missed!"

    University College, Durham

    "Opening up with The Jive Aces, the energy level quickly soars through the roof as the band starts stomping with some infectious, high-speed swing music that parallels the energy of 50's rock 'n' roll with all the silk and glamour of 40's swing. Truly modern, and making no claims otherwise, the band seems to be on a caffeine high as they shoot and dance around the notes with such clarity. I’ll give it an A."
