Jive Aces



Given that the War and Peace Show is the largest of it's kind in the world, probably, they do have a cast comprising the best 1940s Entertainers in the world, probably.

 

The Jive Aces are regulars at the show and put on their usual energetic and coruscating performance. They were joined on the stage by the Swingtime Sweethearts and Kitten von Mew had a fine time dancing with the crowd.

After having seen some photos of all the laughing and amusing persons, dressed up in the former uniforms on the 'War and Peace Show' in present times I, sorry, can only feel and say: "Yery strange in German view". (It is not the first time that I heard of such 'shows' and 'games' in England.)
Les Auld: There are all nationalities at the big events Philine, with groups from all over Europe including Holland, Germany and Poland to name but three. It is amazing just how many languages you hear as you wander around the show. The re-enactors do have a sense of history and of where we came from in the past. Whole families become involved and spend vast amounts of time throughout the year attending such events. Thanks for taking time to comment.
A nice set of Pics' Les,and the video, and thanks for the info' on the cloud app' soc'. The video reminded me that it was during drum solos,that we headed for the bar, ha,ha.
Les Auld: I must admit I do like drums, although I prefer the carnival drums we get during Liverpool Carnival, thanks for the comment.

They made their video to 'Bring Me Sunshine' in my local '60's diner, Bobby Jo's (in Southend). Worth checking out on YouTube ;-) Great shots BTW
Les Auld: had a look and it is good, the inside of the diner would provide some good backgrounds for the era. Thanks for the comment Mark.
Les, This is a great picture.
Les Auld: Thanks you Frances.
Three really good shots Les.
Les Auld: Thanks Brian, although in reality it is five shot as the main is a merge of three.
Great set of pictures and i love the video too
Les Auld: There are some other good videos of them on YouTube as well Bill, thanks for the comment.
Awesome Les! Brings a smile to my face they're having such fun!
Les Auld: They were indeed Elizabeth, thanks for the comment.
