Jump Jive meets Postmodern Jukebox!

Following his mysterious disappearance in the 1940s, legendary Love Rats bandleader Tommy was presumed to be history. Many years later, a team of scientists found him inside an abandoned walk-in freezer! He had been ‘on deep ice’ for over 60 years!

Now thawed, he and his Love Rats bring that authentic Jump Jive beat to modern hits like “Uptown Funk”, “White Wedding”, “I Got A Feelin'” and “Don't Cha”. All are delivered in their inimitable rocking style.

With a huge back catalogue of classic Swing, Jump Jive and Rock’n’Roll tunes also available, the Love Rats are the real deal! They authentically capture the exuberant spirit of Jump Jive and blend it with a modern jukebox of family favourites.

They are guaranteed to get your joint jumpin'!

Excellent communication during all phases of the transaction; both from Warble and Tommy at The Love Rats. On the night, the band were punctual, very polite, and professional. We received many complimentary comments about The Love Rats from our guests. They transformed a good party into a great party. Quote from the owner of the restaurant - "I wish I could afford to hire them every weekend".

, Wedding, Middleton Lodge, North Yorkshire

Brilliant. Everyone commented how good they were. Would hire again no question.

, Birthday Party, Essex

The Love Rats were superb! We had a fantastic party, thanks largely to them. They are great musicians, and they really made the party go with a swing! (Sorry!) Fabulous! They were all I hoped for.

, Wedding, Cheshire

Hi Jennie, We had such an amazing day at our wedding and I would happily provide some feedback. All the queries and questions I had prior to the day were answered in a timely manner and the booking process was a simple procedure. On the night The Love Rats put on a brilliant performance, everyone thoroughly enjoyed the music and they got the dance floor swinging. I had a number of comments from guests at the wedding on how good the band were and where we got them from. They were part of the evening which I could not fault at all. Fantastic performance, brilliant singer and the band were outstanding.
