Beloved Adelaide venue Jive has announced a fundraiser show for later this month, the culmination of a campaign to keep the venue’s doors open after it was hit hard by the coronavirus pandemic and resultant restrictions.
Check out the full lineup below:
The event will be lead by the ‘Save Jive Five’, who’ll serve as the venue’s house band on the night. Tickets are on sale now.
The news arrives after a lengthy crowdfunding campaign via Pozible to save the venue, organised by a small collective of supporters from Adelaide’s music community. It has currently raised over $60,000.
“The campaign has been absolutely phenomenal; it’s been truly heart-warming to see the industry and community come together and throw all their support behind such a great cause. But the one thing everyone really wanted was a live show,” commented Jive owner Tam Boakes.
“It was really hard to pick a few bands to play, so we thought why not ask everyone, and create a true party atmosphere! These are all acts that have long been part of the Jive family, and it’s so exciting to see them all performing together, I honestly can’t wait for this show.”
