SWINGING sextet and Britain's Got Talent favourites The Jive Aces return to Clacton next week with their spectacular high-energy stage show.

They've played to sell-out crowds at the Royal Albert Hall, Buckingham Palace, Glastonbury Festival and the London Olympics, and have performed in 40 countries, including major theatre tours in the USA.

Best known as the first live band to reach the final rounds of Britain's Got Talent, where they even managed to cheer up Simon Cowell, their award-winning Bring Me Sunshine video went viral and has had more than three million views online.

That was followed with a performance in front of Queen as part of the diamond jubilee celebrations and at both the Olympic and Paralympic celebrations as they established themselves as the UK's top jive and swing band.

They combine fresh arrangements of songs made famous by such greats as Cab Calloway, Bobby Darin, Louis Armstrong, Dean Martin and Sammy Davis Jnr, along with a selection of superb swinging originals taken from their seven studio albums.

The Jive Aces have also worked with many of the top names in the business, including John Travolta, Status Quo, Isaac Hayes, Van Morrison, Priscilla Presley and Buddy Greco, who died this month.

Other TV appearances include Strictly Come Dancing, Children in Need, Good Day Los Angeles and The Alan Titchmarsh Show.

They bring their latest show to Clacton's Princes Theatre on January 27 at 7.30pm.

Tickets are £15 (£13 concessions) from the box office on 01255 686633.
