Formed in 1989 by Steve Berndt & Kurt Walther, The Jivewires have jumped many musical and national borders. Taking their influence from the jazz inspired early R&B satirical popular music of 1940's greats Louis Jordan, Cab Calloway, Wynonie Harris and Louis Prima, the Jivewires throw a new spin on the Jump Blues tradition. Hip Hop, Latin, Ska and Rock all influence the band's original music within the Jump Blues idiom.


With a high energy show, five albums of original material and an album of Louis Jordan hits, the Jives are as keen as ever to get you jumpin' like you never jumped before!
