Brisol jive club was formed in the year 2000 by myself Will,and my wife Jane, it was our intention to raise money for charity and to put the fun back into rock'n'roll.
since we started bristol jive club we have raised over £30,000, pounds for various charities, but of course we were only able to achieve this because of the help and support of our many rockin friends, we have also taken part in numerous fund raising events for other organisations,
Jane and i have both been on the rockin scene for many years, We saw that there was a need for a club where children would be allowed to attend, and be able to learn to jive, as after all these children are the future of rock'n'roll in this modern day.
when we decided to do our first weekend dance event, we did not plan to do what we would want, we listened to what you the people were saying at other rock'n'roll weekend dance events, and it soon became apparent that some of the ladies were getting fed up spending hours getting ready for the evening dance, only to end up getting soaked and windswept on the walk from their chalet to the venue, so we decided to hold our weekend dance events in well presented hotels with nice warm comfortable bedrooms great food stunning ballrooms with great sprung wooden dance floors, but most of all where you would arrive at the venue still looking as stunning as you did when you left your room and be ready for a great night of entertainment with the top rockin bands on the scene today, we have done our very best to keep our rock'n'roll weekend breaks at a price everyone could afford, This we have been able to do on every event we have held, and on some events we have even been able to lower the price from pervious years, and arrange great value 99p bar deals.
I am the resident dj, with the red hot'n'rockin record hop,and co founder of Bristol jive club and i have been on our rockin scene for around 38 years now, and was part of the original bristol rock'n'roll scene, i used to run the lonestar road show back in the 1980's when the likes of matchbox were in the charts with rockabilly rebel, The jets with love makes the world go round we even booked shakin stevens along with johnny storm at the rock plie club at temple back in bristol,the rockin scene thrived around the springer, the white hart, and trinity church but to name a few,and i was one of the first dj's to work at the early brean sands rock'n'roll weekends.
my wife jane has also been on the rockin scene since an early age, jane originally from gloucester goes back to the days of brockworth house, the cattle market, and the bristol hotel but to name a few, so between jane and myself we have a wealth of knowledge of the rockin scene, so you could not put yourself in better hands when it comes to booking a rock'n'roll weekend event or holiday.
when we go out to dj at other venues, we perform under the name of red hot 'n' rockin, so please keep an eye for us, as you will be in for a great night
Bristol jive club is a fully licensed club, we carry £10.000.000 pounds public liability and product insurance, i myself am a fully licensed dj, and carry music copyright, public performance and pro dub licences as required by law, and i am a full member of the alliance of mobile dj's
