All-Electric Productions presents:
'Shake That Thing!'
The Great British Swing-Dance Show

Starring the UK’s premier dance company 'The Swing Time Jivers', and Tony Jacobs' Tuxedo Jazz Orchestra. With the Little Tuxes Dixieland Band and from the Glenn Miller UK Orchestra special guest singer Catherine Sykes.

This brand-new, and unequalled combination creates the most musical, exciting and entertaining song-and-dance show in the UK. 'Shake that Thing' is a dazzling celebration of dance, jazz music and song from the Roaring ‘20s and Fabulous ’30s including the Charleston, the Lindy-Hop, the Black Bottom and much more.

The orchestra and dancers pay tribute to the incomparable Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers in numbers such as the timeless ‘Cheek To Cheek’ and ‘Pick Yourself Up’.

‘Tony Jacobs is the perfect front man: his ability to impart his deep knowledge of the music with charm and wit is matched by his stylish vocals. Backed up by the delightful voice and personality of Catherine Sykes, the ideal band singer, and the cream of British jazz and big band musicians, the Tuxedo Jazz Orchestra offers superb musical entertainment of world-class standard. So, put the Tuxedo Jazz Orchestra together with the Swing Time Jivers – and there you have the perfect combination – a sure-fire hit show!’ Grammy-award winning Vince Giordano
