A jive and swing band who were once semi-finalists on Britain’s Got Talent will perform in Bromley to encourage passers by to say no to drugs.

The Jive Aces, who have just toured America, will sing in front of Primark to promote the Truth About Drugs Campaign, sponsored by the Church of Scientology.

Jives Aces have supported the campaign for 20 years and the six band members encourage children as young as six to stay drug-free.

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."

Ian said he smoked "grass" and drank alcohol as a youngster but insisted that it led to unhappiness.

He added: "I gave it all up. I then realised that it was imperative as a musician to take action against this social plague and so we have been supporting the campaign for over 20 years.

"Like most artists we want to change the world for the better through our art."

The Jive Aces, who were Britain's Got Talent semi-finalists in 2012, will perform in Bromley on Sunday July 7 between 1-2pm.

The performers, who are all Scientologists, have sang for the Queen and have worked with John Travolta and Van Morrison in the past.
