This month we're introducing a new band to Jive Party: the Cosimo Matassa Project is a London-based 5-piece rhythm and blues band who derive their name from the legendary New Orleans music producer. Matassa was critical in forging the distinctive New Orleans rhythm and blues sound that emerged from the city in the 1950s and 1960s. Hear that sound brought back to life at The Rivoli Ballroom on February 22! For a sample, check out the band on YouTube.
Having danced to the band at an event last year we know you'll love this addition to the Jive Party roll of honour.
So come along to the iconic, totally unique Rivoli Ballroom, soak up the atmosphere, enjoy the music, and dance the night away.
As usual the night kicks off with a jive class aimed at beginners (8:30pm-9pm) followed by two sets from the band and DJs filling in.
