Back for their fourth time at Jive Party, we’re truly delighted to have Sugar T and The Swells providing the entertainment for us this December, rounding out another year of the best live jive, swing and R&B in the Capital. Sugar T are one of the slickest, sexiest, most entertaining bands on the circuit! They deliver classic R’n’B and Rock’n’Roll of the 50s and 60s – the music of Etta James, Dinah Washington, Little Richard, Johnny Otis, Ray Charles et al – with a 21st century attitude. Equally at home in sweaty dive bars and clubs, dance halls, festivals, or swanky upscale private events, Sugar T and the Swells are guaranteed to get any audience off their feet and onto the dance floor.
The Swells were formed by bassist “Thump” Thompson (founder member of The Darts, who cut his teeth playing with John Lee Hooker and Howlin’ Wolf) and trumpeter and front man Ralph Lamb – a born showman who has worked with a host of stars including Tom Jones and Jamiroquai.
As usual the night kicks off with a jive class aimed at beginners followed by two sets from the band and DJs filling in.
