Traffic chaos and the closure of most bridges over the Thames did little to dampen the enthusiasm of a record number of festival-goers who attended the 15th annual Jive Aces’ Summertime Swing.

Staged in the idyllic grounds of Saint Hill Manor outside East Grinstead, West Sussex, the Sunday afternoon show featured not only the resident swinging six-piece, but stellar guests including Clare Teal, Cassidy Janson, Peter Donegan and members of The Fabulous Bamboozle.

The Aces formed as long ago as 1989, when friends from Billericay School in Essex Ian Clarkson (lead vocals, trumpet and ukelele), and Peter Howell (drums) recruited bassist Ken Smith and brass player “Big” John Fordham, who they knew from East London rock’n’roll and jive clubs. Keyboard maestro Vince Hurley and trombone player Alex Douglas completed the line-up.

About Vintage Rock

In this issue of Vintage Rock we reveal our definitive Top 100 Rockabilly Tracks from classics of the genre through to lesser-known gems in the catalogue. With Halloween upon us, this issue we brush aside the cobwebs to step inside the spooky world of ghoul-rock pioneer Screamin' Jay Hawkins, and David West navigates his way through the zombie-loving ranks of Psychobilly with the help of The Sharks' frontman Alan Wilson and Dutch psychobilly giants Batmobile. 60 years on from it's release, Randy Fox investigates this month's classic album, Bo Diddley's big-selling second offering Go Bo Diddley, we hear from 21st century roots rockers The Delta Bombers who discuss their new material, and David Burke looks into the fascinating story of Hank Ballard, the rhythm and blues mastermind behind The Twist. Much more inside too, including the Jive Aces' Summertime Swing live, news – including an upcoming Netflix animation with Elvis cast as a spy, and all of the latest music reviewed! Enjoy the issue!
