Quality stamped all over it, covering four nights and three days. We were there to get as much of it as possible for you, the result of which is our largest ever review of a weekender. You can read all about The Hi Jivers and many others here https://www.thebettajivereview.com/weekender-reviews.html.
Even today, we are still adding photos to the gallery that accompanies the review, to show some more performers on stage. Be aware readers, this is the only place you will get to see this review, and we might suggest, the only worthwhile review about this year's event. It's also the precursor to a lot of changes to the Bettajive Review.
From this month, we will be producing an online magazine. Since announcing this last month, the hits went from 7500 in the previous month, to 21,300, and views are consistent to remain that way. So we will hopefully be able to generate enough advertising, and donations or sponsorship, to keep the magazine free to view. To that end also, if you want a link on our links page, our rates are very reasonable.
There will still be the Bettajive Review monthly blurb that many of you were used to in UK Rock n Roll Magazine. That will also feature gig reviews at clubs we attend. We will also be including interviews with various artists, groups and vendors on the scene that you might or might not be familiar with. We are mainly a music review website, gigs, weekenders and records, however, we'd like to include articles on clothing and the like.
So if you want to be part of this exciting new presentation, as an advertiser, our rates are very reasonable, so do get in touch. We will be writing to many of you in the future as well. Our email is firstname.lastname@example.org or use the contact form

Also at the Rave, Si-Line Vintage. Si Line Vintage was formed in 2017 and released the first La Premiere bag for sale during September 2017.
Based in Norfolk East Anglia UK, they have taken their inspiration from the last almost 40 years of living the 50’s lifestyle travelling to many venues and weekenders across the UK, Europe and the USA.
They say:- Our range of vintage inspired Lucite style bags and colour matching earrings are completely Designed and hand made by Si Line Vintage
Si Line Vintage Purses/ bags are all marked with the makers name and an individual number, we strive not to produce lots of bags all identical , instead we will feature something different on each bag, this could be colour, latch, handles or lid design.
We recently traded for the first time at the Rockabilly Rave and introduced 3 new Purse/Bag styles and a new designed art deco clock.
And all after they, Simon and Pauline, had just got married a week or so before!
With the success of this years first Southport Rumble (see our Weekender Reviews section for a full review and pictures), here's some info about the next one "Once again, thanks to everyone for making the 1st Southport Rumble such a memorable success. You all were great, bands, staff, DJs and all the fab bands on stage. There was a slight mistake on next years flyer which stated £50 deposit per person, this should of course be per chalet.
New flyer above and what a line-up we have for next year, with a total 8 I international bands, several of which making first appearance on UK soil. We have kept pricing same as this year and booking lines and website now open. To book use following link and scroll up to the 2020 Rumble flyer or to www.pontins.com/rumb or use the Pontins booking hotline 08714 742741 From the comments received looks like going to be a full one so suggest get your deposit paid asap to secure your place."
Claire and Neil Seabrook have already announced their full line up for their third Hot Rock n Boogie event in Lincolnshire next May. It falls on the first May weekend, so make sure you won't have to scuttle off on Sunday 'coz of work', and you get to enjoy their strongest line up yet.
Hemsby folks! How good was that? Bill Guntrip and his family and team presented an excellent weekender at the revamped Richardson's camp in Norfolk. And next year as you can see from the flyer, it's shaping up well. What is now on the flyer, is the recent announcement, that the one and only Rhythm Shakers will be playing. We had a brilliant red haired lady headlining this year in the shape of Gizzelle, next year, Marlene Perez and the boys.
