SATURDAY 21st May 







JUMP, JIVE and WAIL! will be held at The Flynn Hotel, 2a Bligh Street,

Sydney on Saturday 21st May


Dear friends and devoted “Wailers”,

Thank you for all the wonderful support and advice you have sent regarding the news about Jump, Jive and Wail. You seem to be of one voice.

We had a follow-up meeting with the hotel management where we relayed your feelings about retaining Jump, Jive and Wail at The Flynn. As we said before, the management there are happy with the way the night is run and hoped to be able to keep it going.

The conclusion of the meeting was simple. Increase the door charge to $10 to try and cover the shortfall between the previous revenue and the target for the night. Your response will basically determine whether Jump, Jive and Wail continues its run on a Saturday night in this fantastic setting of The Flynn Hotel. A security guard will have to be employed for the night due to police requirements, which means you should always carry ID to gain entry.

If numbers clearly indicate that people aren’t prepared to pay $10 for one of the best nights of fun and fabulous social dancing on a Saturday night in the city, then the end is inevitable. We do hope we have your support.

In moving forward, we would also encourage if possible, that you spend your food and drink budget at the hotel and not some other establishment before coming on for a night of dancing with us. Like the dry water well, we may not always be there. “Support The Flynn” is our new mantra.

JUMP, JIVE AND WAIL WILL RETURN TO THE FLYNN ON SATURDAY 21ST MAY and we are so excited to be looking forward to this.

As always thank you for your continued support.

Love to you all, Limpin' Jimmy and The Swingin' Kitten xx

JUMP, JIVE and WAIL is a fabulous social and dance night of Swing, Jump Blues, Rock'n'Roll


and Rockabilly presented by DJ's Limpin' Jimmy and The Swingin' Kitten held on the


3rd Saturday of the month.

  The Flynn is located under the Hotel Wentworth and is a very stylish venue with a large timber

dance floor, air conditioning and a lovely ambiance.

There is an extensive food and beverage menu so why not come and have a bite to eat there

 before JJW? The kitchen will be open from 7pm to 9pm with some pizzas available after 9pm.

Come on down and join in the fun - have a dance, listen to great music, have a drink or 2,

catch up with friends and meet new ones!

The venue is also very close to all forms of public transport.

See you there!
     Limpin' Jimmy and the Swingin' Kitten

Bringing a touch of Vegas to you!

This Sydney Band performs a great mix of Cool Swing and Classic Soul with a touch of class and lots of energy.

Dressed to kill these guys will get the party started and fill the dance floor. Blend the soulful singing of Steven Howard with

the hardest Swingin’ Rhythm section in town then sprinkle with hot horn lines....

The Aston Martinis deliver the coolest sound around and will have you coming back again and again.

....Shaken AND Stirred!
