band Lil' Miss Hayley

"The Jive Aces"
They were Semi-finalist on
Britains Got Talent 2012!
& The Hot Notes! My
terrific New Band Made it's Debut at the Big Jive
in Worthing on 2nd March. 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
have 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'm 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!
With gigs already in the pipeline I look forward to
performing to new audiences far and wide! New Pictures
and Film Footage to follow.
I am Lil'
Miss Hayley. An
year old singer/songwriter, dancer, musician & actress.
I have been making a name for myself on
the Swing and Jive circuit for several years now 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 unfortunatley
we all live too far apart to make this a regular thing.
I have been lucky enough to go with the Jive Aces
on several tours in the last 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 Scotts
receiving my own standing ovation & encour! The
EP is available through the Jive Aces website.
recently 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! Now that I have formed
my new Band The Hot Notes I am really excited to perform
some great songs with them! 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 continued to pursue
my dance teaching qualifications & hope
to complete them later this year. Recently
I started a local Retro Dance Workout class for the
over 50's which I love (click
here) and in April I will be Joining Paul Jackson
(get in the Swing) and teaching Lindy Hop classes in
Bury St Edmunds on Wednesday evenings (click
