One of the biggest jive and swing bands The Jive Aces will be performing an anti-drugs gig on the Flag Market Square in Preston this Sunday.

The Jive Aces have supported the Say No To Drugs, Say Yes to Life campaign for years, giving concerts all over the world to raise awareness of the dangers of drugs.

Lead singer Ian Clarkson said: “People look up to musicians and see them taking drugs and think that they then have to use them to be a great artist.

“What they don’t realise is that without drugs they would be a lot happier, play a lot better and live a lot longer”.

The six-piece group reached the semi-finals of Britain’s Got Talent, sold out the Royal Albert Hall, performed for the Queen and worked with John Travolta and Van Morrison.

The Jive Aces, love to make feel good music and their song Bring Me Sunshine was prescribed by a doctor in Seattle to cheer up patients suffering with depression.

The video of the song has received more than two million hits on You Tube. The show is from 1.30-2.30pm.
