We’re thrilled to invite JG & the Ultimates back to The Rivoli on January 20th 2017. This truly rockin’ rhythm & blues band is fronted by guitarist, Jay Gipson. Jay has been performing now for 30 years in a variety of bands, guises & genres.

“It wasn’t until I began to play at the many vintage events that I discovered there was this whole community of people who danced jive, lindy and swing and were also so enthused and dedicated to the ‘Vintage’ sound, dance, era & lifestyle.”

Says Jay, “I’ve always loved ‘blues, jazz & soul’ of all kinds and it’s what I’ve listened to and been into the most since I first picked up a guitar. But it wasn’t until I began to play at the many vintage events that I discovered there was this whole community of people who danced jive, lindy and swing and were also so enthused and dedicated to the ‘Vintage’ sound, dance, era and lifestyle.”

The music and style of ‘JG & the Ultimates’ is immersed in the retro sounds of the 50’s & 60’s but with a strong leaning towards the bluesy side of rock & roll, jump blues & R&B. The band comprises seasoned musicians who also have played and play for a long list of other well known artists including the Drifters, The Four Tops, Mike Sanchez, The Glen Miller Orchestra, Laura B, The Drugstore Cowboys, Si Cranstoun, Dexter Shaw, West Weston, Ray Gelato, Jools Holland Orchestra, JD McPherson and Barrence Whitfield.

Our January Jive Party will feature a beginners’ jive class and DJs to kick off the evening, followed by two sets from the band.
