JUMP, JIVE and WAIL!!

 

 

 

 

 

 

NEXT DATE & VENUE TBA

 

 

 

 

 

**UPDATE – JUMP, JIVE AND WAIL!!**

We are very sorry and sad to advise that The Flynn have decided not to continue to hold Jump, Jive and Wail at their venue effective immediately.

The Flynn have been approached by another promoter who have booked every Saturday night from July to December. Unfortunately, this is totally out of our control and there’s not much we can do about it.

The numbers attending JJW have been excellent and we sincerely appreciate your support especially with the introduction of a door charge, the spend over the bar and supporting the event by having dinner beforehand.

We will commence looking for another venue but please be aware that it could take some time before we find something suitable. As soon as we have news on the next era of JJW, we will certainly let you all know.

Again, we thank you all so much for your support of one of the most popular and successful dance events in Sydney.

Limpin' Jimmy and The Swingin' Kitten xx

Spencer P Jones, guitarist, singer and prolific songwriter is seriously ill. He has performed live consistently for more than 30 years, but has not been able to work for several months due to his illness.

Author of catchy and poignant tales capturing Australia’s underbelly, driven by his signature guitar sound (Australian Guitar magazine rated Jones as one of Australia’s Top 40 best guitarists), and delivered in his melodic but menacing snarl, his impact on the Australian and international rock scene is unsurpassed in this country.

Spencer came to prominence as guitarist, singer and songwriter with The Johnnys (a band so loved by Neil Young he said he wished he could bottle their sound and spirit) and as one part of inner-city swamp rock supergroup the Beasts of Bourbon. Moving out on his own with his 1994 debut Rumour of Death, Jones has gone on to release ten impeccably crafted albums in his own right. Along his journey, Jones has also been a gun for hire with Paul Kelly, Chris Bailey and The General Dog, Maurice Frawley and The Working Class Ringos, The Sacred Cowboys, Ian Rilen’s Hell To Pay, These Immortal Souls and Shotgun Wedding. And then there’s the international connections – he has played with everyone from the Gun Club to Evan Dando, The Violent Femmes, Shotgun Rationale and Andre Williams as well as touring with members of Television and The Damned. To support Spencer with the costs of his medical treatment, some of Australia’s finest rock musicians have come together to celebrate the career of the axeman and master songwriter. Benefit shows have taken place in Melbourne, Geelong, Perth, and most recently Brisbane.

Now it’s Sydney’s turn. Friday 24th June @ The Factory Theatre in Marrickville.

    Jack Daniel's Barrel House - Melbourne

     

     

     

    Today from 12pm till 4pm The Jack Daniel's Barrel House will echo with the sounds of Rockabilly music and dancing.

    Limpin' Jimmy and The Swingin' Kitten have been invited to bring a taste of Rockabilly dancing and music to the legendary Barrel House for the 150th anniversary of the Jack Daniel's Distillery. Hey, Jack Daniel's and Rockabilly have been together for over half a century.

    The Jack Daniel’s Barrel House, a place of true character direct from Jack’s hometown of Lynchburg, will be popping up on Melbourne’s Southbank from 24 June to 3 July.

    At this one-of-a-kind event, guests will be able to raise a toast to the 150th anniversary of the Jack Daniel Distillery in Lynchburg, Tennessee, where today 2.3 million barrels of whiskey are stored in 88 barrel houses. While Jack Daniel’s can be found in more than 165 countries, no matter where you find it, it is in these barrel houses where every drop of Jack Daniel’s is matured.

    As an impressive feature on the city skyline, the Jack Daniel’s Barrel House will offer perfectly crafted drinks and a taste of good old Southern hospitality alongside an action-packed program of live music and entertainment.

    With a long-standing, distinguished and ongoing history of supporting outstanding music globally, Jack welcomes internationally acclaimed Australian rock band Kingswood to the Barrel House. Fresh from recording their debut album in Nashville, the rockers will be teaming up with Epic Brass as they treat revellers to a selection of their own tunes as well as renditions of classic hits.
