About The Jiveoholics
The Jiveoholics The Hottest Jump Jive and Swing Band

The Jiveoholics promo material


The Jiveoholics have been performing swing, jive and rock’n’roll since 2006, when the band first formed through a mutual appreciation of the music performed by the stars of the 40's and 50's, such as Louis Jordan, Wynonie Harris and Big Joe Turner.

From the onset we wanted to capture the energy and joie de vivre in the songs but rather than slavishly copy the originals we decided to put our own identity into the performance of this captivating and still popular music. Humour, ever present in the lyrics we sing, is also a part of our stage presentation.

The Jiveoholics quickly became in demand for dances and festivals throughout the UK and we have played in Denmark and France. We have been invited to perform every year at the Derry City Jazz Festival since 2011.

Over the years the personnel has changed but the passion to play this genre has remained the same. We have just finished recording our fifth studio album and have plans for further recording sessions next year.

We don't play sit-down-and-nod-along-sagely music, with politely-applauded solos. This is raucous, foot-stamping, hip-swinging music, join-in-the-chorus and dance-on-the-table music.

Do we sound like your sort of band? Let's party!
