Isle of Wight to host regular jive night

Tourists on Isle of Wight holidays who are fans of rock 'n' roll may wish to go along to a new jive night that is set to launch on the island later in the spring.

Promoter Graham Pearce is to host the first of the events at Coburgs in Ryde on April 5th, at the start of the long Easter weekend.

This may mean it is the ideal way to kick off a break on the Isle of Wight over the course of the holidays, with the night set to be held each fortnight after the initial bash.

According to a report by the Isle of Wight County Press, Pearce confirmed acts lined up to appear at the launch event include Joey and the Jivers, while names announced for shows in the future include the Lonesome Valley Boys, who will take to the stage on April 19th.

"There will be raffle prizes with the winning numbers taken from the wristband tickets. Tickets will be available from Coburgs, Bagel Wrap, Just Home or from Island Printers in East Street," he told the news provider.

The promoter has launched many events on the Isle of Wight in the past and hosted a show to mark the 50th anniversary of the death of Buddy Holly - his favourite rock 'n' roll act - with a tribute night at Ryde Theatre.

Rattle Shakin' Daddies have been lined up by Pearce to play at the first jive night at Coburgs in May, with the show set to be held on the 3rd of the month.

"The music remains hugely popular and really has stood the test of time - but, despite that, there's really nothing for Ryde rock 'n' rollers," added Pearce.

Other acts scheduled to play gigs on the Isle of Wight in the coming weeks include The Beach Buoys, The Haystack Rats, The Mix and an ABBA tribute group.
