BIG CHEESE AND THE JIVE RATS are
keeping alive the jump swing tradition of Slim Gaillard, Louis
Jordan, Louis Prima and the vout-o-rooney generation. This
high-energy, frenetic & comedic novelty bebop show has band and audience alike
clucking like chickens, barking like dogs, eating potato chips out
of The Big Cheese's hand, and laughing in rhythm.
This combination of talent and savoir-faire is rarely found in one
performer yet The Big Cheese has cleverly stumbled upon the magic
recipe. His outfits are in a clash by themselves and his show
guarantees memories to last a lunchtime.
