Following the incredible and overwhelming support for the Keep Jive Alive Pozible campaign, today organisers can finally announce JIVEaoke, an in-person live music fundraising event celebrating one of Adelaide most beloved venues, Jive.
Over the past 20 years Jive’s owner, Tam Boakes, has been instrumental in nurturing and developing the Adelaide scene from the venues home on Hindley Street. Offering countless South Australian bands, the opportunity to kickstart their music careers.
As a dedicated small capacity live music venue, Jive has been hit hard by COVID-19 and, being a dedicated live music venue, it hasn’t been able to pivot by offering food or alternative venue arrangements, and has been weathering the ever-growing financial stress on the beloved Adelaide venue and owner.
To help keep Jive open, a small collective of Adelaide’s music community banded together to deliver Keep Jive Alive; a Pozible crowdfunding campaign created in support of and in consultation with Jive Owner Tam Boakes, which has currently raised over $60,000.
JIVEaoke, to be held on Monday January 25 at Jive, is the culmination of the Keep Jive Alive fundraising campaign and will be an unforgettable event where the South Australian music industry will gather in support and celebration of the culture and support that Jive and Tam Boakes has worked tirelessly to create and maintain over the past two decades.
JIVEaoke will be led by the ‘Save Jive Five’, featuring renowned Dusty Stephensen, Annie Siegmann, Aaron Nash, Kevin Van Der Zwaag and Libby Verrall, taking up the reins as the house band supporting some of Adelaide’s biggest names in music, who will take the stage to belt out some of your favourite songs, new and old, with guests to include:
Ben Marwe (Bad//Dreems)
Ray Dalfsen (West Thebarton)
Paige Court (MANE),
