The Jive Aces, The UK's No.1 Hot Swing 
& Jive Band Hit NYC For One Night Only!

Renowned worldwide for their high-energy spectacular showmanship, their viral video "Bring Me Sunshine" and for being the first live band to reach the final rounds of "Britain's Got Talent", The Jive Aces have firmly established themselves the UK's No.1 Jive & Swing band.

In New York City for one night only they are appearing at the Metropolitan Room on Sunday 17th January at 9:30pm. The venue is located at 34 W 22nd St, New York, NY 10010.

The band are also bringing with them some very special guests for the show. Flying in from London for the weekend is the little lady with the huge voice, Cassidy Janson who has just taken over the role of Carole King in the London's West End production of "Beautiful - The Carol King Musical" and that local trio of vintage darlings the Manhattan Dolls so it's sure to be one hell of a night!

The Jive Aces average 300 shows a year and have worked with stars as diverse as Van Morrison and Keely Smith and has performed for HM the Queen. They headlined and sold-out the Royal Albert Hall and thousands of festivals, theatres, dance halls, etc, in 35 countries, including Buckingham Palace for the Coronation Festival, Trafalgar Square for the Olympics and major theatre tours in the USA.

Their performance at the 2015 Glastonbury Festival was listed by the "Daily Telegraph" as one of the festival's highlights and the band also wowed the judges on Britain's Got Talent with their show-stopping version of "I Wanna Be Like You", which famously cheered up a grumpy Simon Cowell.

Their most popular music video, "Bring Me Sunshine", has nearly 3 million views on Youtube and has won seven film festival awards. It's so uplifting it's actually been prescribed by a medical doctor!
