May 21 2011: Oo-Bop-Sh’Bam!
ABSOLUTELY STONKING…yes, Oo-Bop-Sh’Bam are back to see if they can top the excitement they generated on-stage back in November 2010, their last Jive Party appearance. That was a chilly night outside but what a difference when you stepped inside the Rivoli. If you’ve not seen them yet well here’s a bit of background…. Oo-Bop-Sh’Bam take their influences from the big band combos of the 1940′s and 50′s – think gin-drenched parties, smokey dives and city nightclubs, where swinging and singing ruled the day. Pumping boogie-woogie maestro James Lunn on piano, Alan Savage laying down the big beat, Dave Lagando’s pulsating double bass, the ace horns of Lee Badau on tenor sax and Nick Lunt on baritone sax, it all adds up to one helluva good feelgood sound. All top performing guys, combining together musically to bring you an unbeatable night of backbone-slidin’ music that’ll make you want to dance your little cotton socks off.Following the normal format, our May Jive Party will feature a beginners’ jive class and DJs to kick off the evening, followed by two sets from the band.Tickets on sale now.
