Rockin’ with Julie Jive & the Bigshots

Julie Jive 14 12 13008We took a trip back to the 50s this morning, with a welcome return to Phoenix of the excellent Julie Jive & the Bigshots. Ken (drums), Graham (guitar), Graham (sax), Julie (vocals) and Steve (double bass) have been making quite an impact on the Essex music scene for a few years now, with their unique blend of swinging, rocking and jiving music from the era that saw the birth of American rock ‘n’ roll.

They’d agreed to play three songs live – from Ella Mae Morse, Wanda Jackson and a Christmas classic from Brenda Lee – but they were so good that I begged them to stay and give an encore!
