Davistown RSL: February 25 2006:

The Jive Bombers - The Shuffle Kings and Vinnie the Swing King:
Not since the days of the legendary Button Mushrooms' New Years Eve gigs have I seen a show sell out to capacity as fast as this gig at the at The Davistown RSL Club.

With enquiries regarding ticket sales from as far away as Wollongong and many of the audience traveling from Sydney to see the show, there was a fairly subtle hint that this was to be a show to rival the best the Coast has seen in a long time. The vibe was all eager expectation and anticipation.

So many wonderful period outfits, rock 'n' roll/swing dancers and a very small few, just like yours truly, that were there to be enlightened to the reason for the hype.

Getting up close and personal with the camera had me wondering why I felt I knew some of these faces...

Had I had the time to have done some research prior to the gig I would have discovered that;

Paul Robert Burton was familiar from playing alongside the likes of; Jimmy Barnes, Kevin Borich, Pete Wells (Rose Tatts, Lucy DeSoto) and Phil Emmanuel to name a very select few.

Tao Wanders has been known to share the stage with Mal Eastick and Phil Emmanuel.

Mike Gubb has been seen with (forgive the name dropping to follow) The Dynamic Hypnotics, Mental As Anything and also toured Australia and America with The Whitlams and Europe with Crowded House.

Robin Zirwanda was recognised as the more than effervescent and energetic front man for Azadoota one of the many brilliant acts performing at The Peats Ridge Festival last year, while Victor Polyik and Arne Hanna are both musicians with a bio that has a long list of both national and international stars such as Long John Baldry, Jeff Simmons (Mothers Of Invention), Renee Geyer, Marcia Hines and the list goes on.

The other artists that oft fill the galaxial stage of the Shuffle are Charlie Cole (Moving Pictures, 1927, The Blues Brothers Band, Footloose Soundtrack, James Blundell and Ed Kuepper), Don Hopkins (Mal Green. Jim Conway's Big Wheel and Rob Grosser), Michael Hawke (Total Fire Band, The Harlem Shuffle, Little Pattie and Greedy Smith) Brad Child (Bob Barnard, Dan Barnett, Geoff Bull and Doug Parkinson).

Nothing I can write here after running off the star spangled list of talent here can do the show justice.

Suffice to say 'awesomely brilliant entertainment' is an understatement of such magnitude that this reviewer will have sympathy for those that missed this show.
