Since the last time the Jive Aces come to Phoenix they have opened the London Olympics, played for the Queen of England at her Diamond Jubilee, were the first band to make it to the finals of Britain's Got Talent, had several viral videos with millions of views, and have toured around the world four times.|
Together for nearly two decades, this extremely popular six piece group have performed at thousands of festivals, theatres and events throughout the UK, Europe and USA, as well as Japan, Israel, South Africa, Morrocco and the Caribbean, 30 countries in all. The Jive Aces are renowned for their high energy Jump Jive music (the exciting sound where Swing meets Rock n Roll) and spectacular stage show.
They combine a mixture of fresh arrangements of swing - songs made famous by such greats as Louis Prima, Cab Calloway, Bobby Darin, Louis Armstrong, Dean Martin, Big Joe Turner and Sammy Davis Jr. - along with a selection of superb swinging originals taken from their studio albums.
Whiskey Kiss (opening band) is a female fronted Rockabilly band from Phoenix, AZ. Led by husband and wife duo, Niki and Nick White, their music blends swing with traditional rockabilly for a dynamic, danceable sound. They are newcomers to the Phoenix rockabilly scene, but they have already made their mark by playing some of the biggest rockabilly festivals in town and are playing Viva Las Vegas in 2013, the biggest rockabilly festival in the world.
Steve Conrad (dance instructor) has been teaching Lindy Hop/Swing Dancing for more than 21 years and has traveled around the world teaching. He was recently featured on ABC's "The Bachelorette", HGTV's "House Hunters", and NBC's "Little Big Shots: Forever Young", as well as numerous music videos.
