The classic line-up of sax, trumpet, guitar, keyboards, bass and drums allows the band to recreate the music that was all the rage in the 1940’s and 50’s and the current play list includes many of the hits that had audiences jumpin' and jivin' in those post-war years. Compositions by the jump jive greats, Louis Jordan, Cab Calloway and Louis Prima feature widely in the set along with more contemporary work by artists such as Brian Setzer and Big Bad Voodoo Daddy. It's all tied together with a light hearted, tongue in cheek delivery between numbers. 

The Jiveoholics play a two hour show split into approximately hour long sets during which the audience will be invited to join in on chorus lines and cajoled into dancing if they are not already strutting their stuff.  Their trademark loud shirts might have ensured them a place on the Fashion Police's "Most Wanted" list, but their musical style has brought them friends and followers wherever they play

So if you’re looking for a tuxedo'd band to play nice quiet background music, sorry, move along, nothing to see here – but if you want to dance and party through the night then this is your band!

I just wanted to write and thank the Jiveoholics for being part of an excellent evening at Anstey Hall a few weeks ago - your music was absolutely superb, and I'd have little hesitation in recommending you to anyone else looking for a swing band! I have received lots of very positive comments from the other guests (some along the lines of 'best band ever at a wedding') and I am unsure that my little toe is ever going to recover from dancing for a whole evening in new wedding shoes!!
