The Cadillac Kings

The Rivoli Ballroom 350 Brockley Road, Crofton Park

Get into the festive feeling with The Cadillac Kings on December 17th. Tailor-made for the Rivoli Ballroom, the Cadillac Kings are firm favourites on both the blues & jump-jive scenes. Six of the UK’s top blues & roots musicians, playing hell for leather on the Rivoli stage – a recipe for an unforgettable night if you love to jive and swing your feet to rhythm n blues. The Cadillac Kings play music inspired by the sounds and styles of the ’40s & ’50s, with a mix of mostly original songs and a few well-chosen covers from the likes of T-Bone Walker, Roy Brown & Champion Jack Dupree. As usual the evening starts with a jive class aimed at beginners, followed by a DJ set, two sets from the band and a final hour of DJ’ing to 1am.

Dana Gillespie & The London Blues Band

The Rivoli Ballroom 350 Brockley Road, Crofton Park

The amazing, multi-award-winning Dana Gillespie will be appearing at Jive Party in January 2023 backed by The London Blues Band, featuring the incredible Dino Baptiste on the keys. True blues diva Dana is an actress, songwriter and celebrated blues singer with over 60 albums to her name. There's not space here to list all her accomplishments as a movie star, West End musical theatre performer, writer, festival organiser... (her autobiography 'Weren't Born A Man' would be a great place to start...) just be sure not to miss this opportunity to hear Dana doing what she does best - singing the Blues.   Dana and Dino know a thing or two about keeping the dance floor full, so don't think you can get away with standing still and soaking up the atmosphere. You won't have a choice - just follow your feet! To get you in the mood, there's a jive lesson for beginners at the start of the evening.
