It’s been a long time coming, but the sun is finally peeking it’s face from behind the clouds and our evenings are starting to get longer.
That means that we can dust off our glad rags on and get ourselves on the dance-floor once more!
The UK’s jive and rock’n’roll scene really gets going at this time of the year, with many acts coming off their winter breaks and organising tours around the country for the popular summer season. Home to dozens of exciting rock’n’roll bands, you can often find these groups playing at small halls and clubs across the country, but you might be interested to know that this old style of popular music is starting to gain traction with younger audiences.
Thanks to an aggressive college advertising campaign led by up and coming rock’n’roll bands, more and more young people are getting into the scene, so expect to see fresh faces at these upcoming summer events:
