AUG 20 JIVE PARTY at the RIVOLI BALLROOM
Big Swifty are a 5 piece Swing, R&B and Gypsy Jazz band who will be making their Jive Party debut this night. The band has quickly built up a formidable reputation on the dance scene, thanks to a set list of popular dance floor fillers played with plenty of panache. Having performed at many of the Capital’s jive and swing dance clubs already, we thought it high time the group deserved a place in the limelight at the fabulous Rivoli Ballroom. So come on down and hit the floor!
