You'd like me to do what?

I'd like you to doo wop.

The boogie woogie and jive are acceptable too. In fact any kind of dance from the 1940s and 1950s would go down well at the Jump, Jive & Shout night. This lively monthly event will next take place on the 14th June at The Albany performing arts centre. From 9.35pm, you can groove to the pulsating rhythms of vinyl queen, DJ Jeniffer Jackson.

Celebrating American genres such as jazz, the blues, and rock n' roll, listen to music by legends such as Louis Jordan, Wynonnie Harris, Etta James, Tiny Bradshaw, Ruth Brown, The Chords, Big Joe Turner, Little Richard, and many others.

Accompanied by the voice of Sally Wilshire, Jamie Rowan will perform the classic Drinkin' Wine, Spo-Dee-O-Dee by Stick McGhee. He is a great pianist, an instrument that is often under appreciated in in favour of more lively saxophone and guitar.

You should dress smart or in retro/vintage forties glamour. If you are stuck for idea, think about movies like The Girl Can't Help, or the television show Mad Men. Tickets are £5 at the door, £3 concessions, or £2 after 11pm.
