The High Jives

The High Jives are a 4 piece swinging, harmonising, rockabilly-Jive band that not only perform old classics like ‘Johnny B. Goode’ and ‘Great Balls of Fire’ but twist modern songs into their jive genre such as ‘Shake it off’, and ‘I bet that you look good on the dance floor’. 
 
The band have a huge wealth of professional experience, performing at major festivals and venues all over the world. The High Jives are not your average function band; they will jive, twist and shake up any event taking crowds back to the vibrant world of a 1950’s dance hall with a rockabilly bang you won’t be disappointed by.
