The Jive, featuring Angela Pierre, is a collective of musicians from SWFL who love nothing more than performing specially handpicked songs from the golden era of Funk & Soul, as well as today’s contemporary Pop - with their very own original soulful-twist.
Unlike other bands, The Jive formed organically, with the intention of jamming together for fun. Since then, they have become a gigging band available for special events. Whether it is a small intimate pub gig, background entertainment, a live music venue or an event, it won’t be one that will be forgotten!
We specialize in cool funky covers fm Winehouse to Rihanna & Adele, Mayfield to Neville & Nutini to Prince - as well as originals.
This band is extremely talented. Everyone at my party commented how great they were. They are also extremely professional behind the scenes and very detailed oriented ( from music all the way to dress attire) Very well organized and kept the party flowing. Would highly recommend this band! Cant wait to book them again :)
We have booked The Jive to many of our corporate party and loved it! Everyone from the band is incredibly talented. We highly recommend The Jive for your special event!

Gig Length: 45 - 180 minutes
What to Expect
The Jive is unlike other cover bands in that we like to play classic soul and funk as well as today's popular contemporary songs with our own soulful, funky flavor. We carefully scour existing arrangements to come up with the most flavor-filled sounds possible that will make your event special and keep everyone talking. Some examples of this include The Jive doing:
- Macy Gray's arrangement of Metallica's "Nothing Else Matters"
- Ben Loncle Soul's arrangement of White Stripes' "Seven Nation Army"
- The Civil Wars' arrangement of Michael Jackson's "Billie Jean"
- Alice Smith's arrangement of CeeLo Green's "Fool for You"
If you like contemporary live music with a soulful, funky, get-up-and-move-your-feet flavah, you'll LOVE The Jive!
We also like to throw in some classic soul tunes from Aaron Neville, Curtis Mayfield, Bill Withers and Prince, to name a few -- as well as today's most listened to artists like Adele, Rihanna, Alicia Keys, etc. - and some originals, from time to time.
Do you have a special event that includes a cocktail hour OR do you like the Jive's soulful-funky-cool vibe yet only want a slice of it? No worries... The Jive can make your event, more special with any combination of the following musical dishes:
1. Solo piano or Piano / Female Vocal Duo
2. Trio featuring male vocals
3. Full Band with male + female vocals, saxophone and / or guitar
