THIRD SHOW OF THE TOP HAT SERIES
Jump Jive & Wail
Jump, Jive & Wail has earned the reputation of being one of the finest jump-swing bands in the world. Formed in Las Vegas in 1998 by vocalist/trombonist Ken Levine, JJW was quickly playing some of the biggest showrooms Vegas has to offer. Former member of Louis Prima, Jr’s band, Ken had a dream of fronting his own group combining the music of such legends as Louis Prima and Louis Jordan, while adding in his own original work. Jump, Jive, & Wail has entertained crowds in New York, Los Angeles, Hong Kong, and nearly everywhere in-between. The players themselves are internationally renowned and respected musicians, having expertise in just about every genre of music. What started off as a dream is quickly becoming a legend; and what used to be a few fans, now reaches thousands.
