Fancy putting on your glad rags and dancing in the fabulous retro Rivoli Ballroom – with a live band, DJs and a beginners’ jive lesson to kick the evening off? Our ever-popular monthly Jive Parties have a lively buzz, and the best jive, swing and original R&B music around.

April 18: Sarah Mai

Introducing the second new band of the year to Jive Party: Sarah Mai! New to us but not new to the music scene, Sarah is a massive fan of vintage music and dancing so she’s going to fit right in. With a powerful yet velvety voice, she knows how to deliver a song with passion and energy and supported by her excellent rock n roll musicians on bass, piano, sax and drums you are guaranteed a great night if you love your swing, jive and rock n roll.

For a sample, check out the band on YouTube.

So come along to the iconic chandeliered, totally unique Rivoli Ballroom, soak up the atmosphere, enjoy the music, and dance the night away.

As usual the night kicks off with a jive class aimed at beginners (8:30pm-9pm) followed by two sets from the band and DJs filling in.
