We're back, again. 28 years and counting.

Our February JIVE PARTY heralds the return of the Ruby and The Dukes!

The band, fronted by lead singer Ruby who hails from Lithuania, specialises in 40’s & 50’s RocknRoll, Blues, RnB, Rockabilly and Retro Swing – playing classics by Ruth Brown, Varetta Dillard, Etta James, Wanda Jackson, LaVern Baker, Koko Taylor, Little Richard and Bill Haley to contemporary hits by Imelda May, the Stray Cats and The Postmodern Jukebox.

The 5-piece band also features the vintage Gretsch guitar of Chris Thorn. Highly experienced on the 6-string, Chris has played the world stage at Glastonbury, supported the Yellow Jackets, recorded a live album at Ronnie Scott’s and played played live with chart toppers Mint Royale! Chris’s love of vintage guitars and classic valve amps has always complemented his natural tone and feel, perfectly suited to playing the blues, swing and rock’n’roll with Ruby and The Dukes.

So come along to the iconic chandeliered, 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.
