Fronted by vocalist Miss Annie, The Midnight Shift are a Bournemouth-based 1950’s-style 7-piece roots rhythm & Blues band. It’s a welcome return to Jive Party after their first gig for us in July 2017 and we can’t wait to hear and see them back on the Rivoli stage.
The band features tenor and baritone saxes, guitar, piano, double bass and drums – plus highly stylish Miss Annie whose incredible voice is like Ruth Brown, Etta James, Irma Thomas, Lavern Baker and Annie Laurie rolled into one!
The combination of Miss Annie’s belting voice, the wailing horns and the thumping rhythm section gives this band an authentic sound of explosive 1950s Rhythm & Blues!!! Not a night to be missed if you love your jive and original roots R&B.
Jive DJs, a beginner’s jive class, 2 licenced bars and the amazing interior of the Rivoli add to the enjoyment of the night.
