THE VIOLET JIVE
Like a perfect cocktail, musical mixologists The Violet Jive serve up an exotic blend of styles and eras, imbuing a retro flavour to swing, Latin, rock ‘n’ roll, soul, funk and beyond… all served with a fresh twist. Hot original music and cool covers jostle for space in their catchy sets. Inspired by the music of the movies, these cool cats have a wildly versatile array of tunes at their finger tips and can tailor sets accordingly. Their cool vibe of seductive melodies and hot rhythms – Think Gypsy Kings meets Dean Martin – will have every toe tappin’ and dance floor a’hoppin’. The Violet Jive’s dynamic trio features covers showcasing the classics from Santana, James Brown, The Police, Chuck Berry, Dean Martin, Gypsy Kings, Buena Vista Social Club, AC/DC, The Specials and movies such as Pulp FIction to name but a few.
