The Jive Aces Biography (Wikipedia)

The Jive Aces are a six-piece UK based, swing band that was formed in 1989. They were the winners of BBC TV's Opportunity Knocks, and Britain's Got Talent semi-finalists in 2012. They have released 11 albums, as well as compilations,EP's and singles and have performed at numerous music festivals.

The band was founded by vocalist Ian Clarkson, drummer Peter Howell (who went to school together in Billericay), bassist Ken Smith and saxophonist "Big" John Fordham. The four met in East London jive and jazz clubs. They cut their teeth street entertaining and soon were being offered shows in UK and Europe.

The band is long recognized as one of the top swing bands in the world, something borne out by their extensive international travel (the band has performed in over 40 countries). The June 2015 issue of Vintage Rock magazine described them as the "UK's number one jive and swing band".

They have received awards from Variety, the Children's Charity and the City of Derry International Music Award in 2006. On 12 September 2018 The Jive Aces won "Best Band" at the Boisdale Music Awards. The award was presented by Jools Holland, who then joined the band for a boogie woogie jam session.
