Over the past 20 years the Jive Bombers have established themselves as Australia's leading dance band. Having won major awards for both jazz and rock n roll. The band has a large and loyal following of dancers and dance teachers; one of our original tracks "JB Boogie" has even had a dance created for it. However, gaining the praise of Frankie Manning, one of the worlds' greatest dance innovators, was very special.
The strength of this band comes from the experience and quality of its members. Musicians working with the Jive Bombers have performed and/or recorded with everyone from the Beatles to Little Richard, Frank Sinatra to Roy Orbison. And the repertoire is probably the most eclectic of any band, containing award winning original songs and custom arrangements of the great songs from the past.

The Austin based Jive Bombers form in Fall 1997 on the ashes of the Big Town Swingtet. They consisted of Dana Dattalo (Jubilettes) on vocals, Vance Hazen on bass, Bobby Horton (Horton Brothers, Deke Dickerson...) on guitar, T.D. Motycka (Nick Curran) on saxes, Derek Peterson (Kidd Pharaoh) on piano, and Shaun Young (High Noon) on drums and vocals and they played post-world war II jump and jive and hot rockin' rhythm'n'blues. Dattalo has a superb and powerful voice that suits that genre perfectly and Shaun Young sings a couple too, including some duets with her. Billy Horton produced it at Fort Horton, so you can expect warm and vintage sound.
They covered songs from Julia Lee, Ruth Brown, Buddy Johnson, Ann Cole but have solid originals mostly written by Young. Most of this songs has a strong dancefloor appeal and are sure to make you move your feet.
Local jump and jive six piece the Jive Bombers throw their collective hat into the post-WWII swing ring with 15 cuts of rolling dance fuel. Clocking in at three-quarters of an hour, about half of this debut's tracks were penned by the band, and most of those by drummer and High Nooner Shaun Young. From the high-octane opener "Whirlin'" one thing is perfectly clear: Former Jubilettes and Big Town Swingtet vocalist Dana Dattalo has got one helluva voice. While clearly capable of throat pyrotechnics, Dattalo respects the combo-song format, throwing dashes of distinguishing talent here and there, like squirting gas on fire. In spite of a tentative sax solo in "Gotta Gimme Whatcha Got," tenor and baritone saxophonist T.D. (Murph) Motycka also displays fine form throughout. Adding depth to the lineup are the buttery hot tones of guitarist Bobby Horton, ivory massager Derek Peterson and string bassist Vance Hazen. It's all dance music, from the poppin' tongue-in-cheek "Home Cooking" to the hot instrumental "The Hucklebuck" to the Fifties sock-hop slow dance of "Oh What a Dream." Sounding like the records they dig -- Gene Krupa, Artie Shaw, Ruth Brown, and Louis Jordan -- Hit the Deck .... may showcase the Jive Bombers as a period piece, but a damn good one nonetheless.
