Back From The USA
The Jive Aces just had their most successful American tour yet. In just under two weeks the band did eight shows (visiting both coasts), recorded six songs and shot a new music video and two ukulele tutorials (subscribe to our youtube channel for updates)! The shows themselves included two of California's most prestigious theatres - Cerritos Performing Arts Centre with Keely Smith and The McCallum Centre with Ed Ames (of the Ames Brothers, "Ragg Mopp" fame), both to over 1200 people; breaking our own house record with over 900 dancers coming to the Spanish Ballroom in DC; two shows with the fabulous Satin Dollz in Pasadena and LA; And at one of New York's top cabaret spots with the Manhattan Dolls, which got a rave review which you can see by clicking HERE.
