It's getting chilly out there but fear not, we have plenty of hot jive to warm yourself with!
Last week we had a great time at the Boogaloo Jump, Jive & Boogie weekend in Bournemouth. We had people travel in from all over the UK, the Netherlands, France, Denmark and even the USA especially to see us (and all the other great bands too, of course!).
We even had co-host, the great Earl Jackson literally jump up for our big finale of "Jump, Jive & Wail" which is always a riotous experience for everyone involved!
BBC Radio London
In case you missed us on BBC Radio London, here is the link to listen to the show. We're right at the beginning after the news (skip forward to about 3:30 in!). We had guest singer Noelle Vaughn with us and none other than Phil Crosby Jr (grandson of the legendary Bing Crosby happened to be in town and showed up as a surprise, what a riot!

Over the Summer we raised some money through various events including the Summer Evening Jazz in Ingatestone and our own Summertime Swing. One of the beneficiaries of this fundraising was The Not Forgotten, the UK's longest-running veterans charity which focuses on entertainment and activities for injured veterans.
We presented two cheques totalling £4500 to the charity at their head office in London. We are proud to support this great cause and the fantastic work they are doing for our veterans!
