Miss Hayley my adventure so far As
singer/songwriter, dancer, musician & actress.
quite a name for myself on
the Swing and Jive circuit for several years all Thanks to The Jive Aces support. I grew up Swing Dancing,
the music is quite natural to me. I first got up & played the Double Bass
& sang with the Jive Aces at the age of just
13 and Since then I have appeared with them many times,
including at Ronnie Scott's, The Royal Festival Hall, The Pigalle
Club & the legendary 100 Club in London, plus The Lakeside
Country Club in Frimley Green is where I was
awarded Best Young Newcomer 2009 by the Jive Aces.
I have also played with Juke Joint Jump, Ding Dong Daddios,
B & the Moonlighters. I formed my own all Girl Swing
Band while in School (The Jive-Ettz) and occasionally
perform as the Swing Kids with Sam Pagget (Sam the Sax
Man) & Cody Lee (Boogie Woogie Boy) but unfortunately
we all live too far apart to make this a regular thing. In
2013 I fronted the Hot Notes which I was really excited &
was nice to perform
some great songs with them. Due to band commitments
we could not continue & folded after just 3 gigs.
lucky enough to go with the Jive Aces
on several tours in my teens for a couple of years, including:
Washington DC, Derry Jazz Festival, Sicily, Breda Jazz
Festival (Pictured Right). I also danced in the Jive Aces
music video of Bring Me Sunshine which was great fun!
I also had the opportunity to record a song
on the Jive
Aces EP "It's Skiffle Time" singing
'Mr Sandman' which I am very proud of. A Mini Skiffle
tour included performing at the Regent Street Festival
& The Hippodrome & The most famous jazz club in London - Ronnie Scott's
receiving my own standing ovation & encore! The
EP is available through the Jive Aces website.
also completed a professional diploma in song writing and
performance, where I also played guitar and
piano at The Institute of Contemporary
Music Performance in London, which was an amazing insight
into the industry!
My career so far has been
both exciting & diverse but I hope
to finally get well established as a musician
and songwriter! Having changed
direction from a performing arts national
diploma course at college. I have also completed my dance teaching qualifications
& teach dance & Singing lessons to children
at a local dance school. I also teach fitness classes
at Royston Leisure centre.
The next 2 videos are of the Swing Kids with Fast
Eddie and the Jive Machine
We were all put together on the morning of this
Gig at Lakeside Country Club for The Big Jive #2! The Swing Kids
Includes: Sam the Sax Man from Birmingham, Cody Lee from Essex and
myself from Royston. The Swing Kids have preformed a few gigs since,
but are not officially a band. We were all just teenagers
that loved the same music.
& The Hot Notes!
terrific New Band Made it's Debut at the Big Jive
in Worthing on 2nd March 2013 with a great set of new material
we got the event off to a great start and had a fantastic
with the musical direction of Jackson Sloan, with a
collection of great musicians from Essex, I at last
had my own band and my own set of terrific songs! A superb mix of tempo's and styles, many of which are
not as yet being used on the dance scene. I was really
excited to be given this chance by The Jive Aces, to
perform in my own right as a musician and get my new
band established on the Swing Jive and Rock'N'Roll Scene! After the Worthing Gig we had the great
oportunity to do a set at the Twinwood festival
in the Colonial Club, along side Sophie
Shaw & Laura B which was brilliant!
Finally we had a double headed gig with
myself & Jackson Sloan backed by the
Rhytmtones at "Hop 'til U Drop" the
mix was fabulous. Unfortunatly
due to band members all being too busy,
each being in at least one
other band themselves they could not continue
to work with me as my band. So this was
our last Gig. However I still have
a terrific set to start a new band with!
