Welcome to Jive Party at The Rivoli

Hey!! Jive Party has moved from to a brand new site hosted at


So please update your bookmarks and we’ll see you there in just a moment!


Fancy some dancing in the fabulous retro Rivoli Ballroom – with a live band, DJs filling in and a beginners’ jive lesson to kick the evening into swing? Our ever-popular monthly Saturday nights have a lively buzz, great jive, swing and original R&B music and everyone from 18 to 80 taking to the floor! Jive Party is for beginners and experts alike, at The Rivoli Ballroom, Lewisham in London. It’s usually, but not always, on the 3rd Saturday in the month.

December 19: Oo-Bop-Sh’Bam

Put the 19th in your advent calendar – Oo-Bop-Sh’Bam are back to rock the Rivoli!

Oo-Bop-Sh’Bam play classic live boogie-woogie and rhythm ‘n’ blues, taking their influences from the small combos of the 40s and 50s, where swinging and singing ruled the day!

Their jumpin’ jivin’ sound has a classic bounce dance feel. These journeymen of jump have many years of gigging between them, having played with and backed some of the best UK, European and American artists around today.

Favourites at Jive Party, Jackson and the Oo-Boppin’ boys will be back for our Christmas Jive Party – tickets will be on the door but reckon you might want to book? £13 on the door, £13 + booking fee in advance. Here’s the link:
