NSX Update: NOLA on the Square This Saturday

The five-piece version of Neon Swing X-perience is at NOLA in the heart of Downtown Pittsburgh Saturday!

Hi, friends,

We are so excited for our monthly NOLA on the Square (www.nolaonthesquare.com) performance on Saturday (September 7) at 8 PM in Downtown Pittsburgh.  Last month's show was full of friends we haven't seen in a long time - we can't wait to see you at the month's performance!

We also have a lot of other great fall shows listed at www.neonswing.com.  We still have a few discounted tickets available for our September 25 show at the Pittsburgh Hard Rock Cafe with rockabilly superstars The Blasters, Jesse Dayton, and The Legendary Hucklebucks.  Give us an email with how many tickets you need.

We hope to see you at a show and on social media.  Connect with us on Facebook (www.facebook.com/neonswing) and Twitter (www.twitter.com/neonswing).

NSX Update: South Side Works Friday

Neon Swing X-perience presents a free outdoor show Friday night in the heart of Pittsburgh!

Even though most of our shows are in Pittsburgh, it's actually rare to find us playing outside in the heart of the city.  It's also rare for us to play a show in the 'Burgh with our seven-piece configuration.  And, it's even rarer that the show will be free AND three full hours.  

But, this Friday, at the South Side Works (right outside the Cheesecake Factory), we're doing just that!  We hope you will join us from 6-9 PM for this all ages end-of-summer blowout event.  To top it all off, the weather forecast is currently looking PERFECT for Friday evening (which has also been a rarity for our outside shows this summer).

Even better, there should be room for dancing!  So, bring your dancing shoes and/or your folding chairs and join us this Friday early evening.

More info can be found here: https://southsideworks.com/events#a7a29ae1-a860-4d66-acdb-cde7b5ec9785.  And all of our tour dates are at www.neonswing.com.  

Don't forget, we have a big show at the Hard Rock Cafe on September 25th opening for rockabilly kings The Blasters along with The Legendary Hucklebucks.  Email us at srgntswing@gmail.com if you still need tickets.

All of our happenings are posted at www.neonswing.com, Facebook (www.facebook.com/neonswing), and Twitter (www.twitter.com/neonswing).  Remember to Like, Follow, and Share on social media!

NSX Update: Save the Dates and Upcoming August Shows

Neon Swing X-perience has details on special fall shows and upcoming August performances!

We've been hinting at this for a while, but we are now happy to announce that we are planning on releasing our first Christmas album (tentatively titled "O Howly Night") at the Four Seasons Brewing Company on November 9.  We want to make this more than just a regular album release show.  So, in the spirit of the season, we will be donating all proceeds from the sale of the new album that evening to the Pittsburgh Children's Hospital Foundation.  Four Seasons is also expected to donate a portion of their sales that evening as well.  So, save the date and tell your friends - let's make this one really special.  More details to come!

We'll also be playing for charity on Friday, August 23 at the Latrobe Art Center's Yellow Tie Gala during Latrobe's Banana Split Festival.  Reservations are required in advance for this show, so make sure you get your tickets now at https://www.latrobeartcenter.org/events-all/2019-ytg

If that wasn't enough excitement, we're also offering a very limited number of FREE tickets to our September 25 show at the Hard Rock Cafe Pittsburgh to subscribers of our mailing list.  Email us back at srgntswing@gmail.com if you would like to check out the show.  Make sure to tell your friends about the offer and share this message with them, too, so they can sign up for our mailing list.  Supplies are very limited so email us soon!  We will be opening for legendary rockabilly band "The Blasters" that evening as well as performing with local favorites "The Legendary Hucklebucks."  It's gonna be a great night!

Our next show will be a family friendly Westmoreland County end of summer celebration on Saturday, August 17 at the Brian T. Rusnock Amphitheater in the Twin Lakes Park annex (skate/dog park) area in Greensburg.  We go on at 8 PM and Nick Barilla opens the show at 6:30.  Here's a link to the official flyer: https://www.co.westmoreland.pa.us/DocumentCenter/View/16842/NeonSwingNickBarilla8-17-19  We hope to see you there.

NSX Update: NOLA on the Square Saturday

Neon Swing X-perience is hot off our summer tour and ready to return home to downtown Pittsburgh!

Hello, everyone,

We just got off the road from our summer tour. We had a blast - it was great reconnecting with a lot of old friends and meeting many new friends too! We hope to see you all again soon!

In the meantime, just because we're done traveling for the summer does not mean that we're done performing live! In fact, we have a TON of local western Pennsylvania shows lined up for the remainder of summer and fall.

Our post-tour summer performances start this Saturday (August 3) at 8 PM at NOLA on the Square (www.nolaonthesquare.com) in downtown Pittsburgh. We hope to see you there.

We've posted a lot of tour pictures and videos to Facebook (www.facebook.com/neonswing) and Twitter (www.twitter.com/neonswing), so check them out! Our full schedule is available at www.neonswing.com.

NSX Update: East Coast Tour Next Week!

Neon Swing X-perience is traveling down the East Coast for five shows in five days!

Hi, everyone,

We are so excited to be back on the road to see our East Coast friends.  If you know of anyone that lives in or near Thomas WV, Alexandria VA, Ocean City MD, Lewes DE, or Salisbury MD tell them to check out our shows next week!  Our dates are all listed immediately below with additional details following:

7/23 - Purple Fiddle - Thomas WV
7/24 - Nick's Night Club - Alexandria VA
7/25 - Sunset Park - Ocean City MD
7/26 - Bethany Blues - Lewes DE
7/27 - Riverwalk Amphitheater - Salisbury MD

It all starts on Tuesday, July 23 at 8 PM at The Purple Fiddle in Thomas WV.  This is a cool venue in a cozy little town overlooking the scenic Blackwater River.  The Purple Fiddle also happens to be the first place we've ever played out of the state of Pennsylvania some 15 or so years ago and we are excited to be back.  The town was, obviously, the inspiration for the song "Thomas WV" which we recorded for our 2018 "We've Only Just Begun" album.  96 East Ave, Thomas WV 26292.  304-463-4040.  https://purplefiddle.com/bands/neon-swing-x-perience/

On Wednesday July 24 we'll be back at Nick's Night Club in Alexandria VA near Washington DC.  It's always a great time when we play for our friends at Gotta Swing, the nation's largest organizer of swing dances!  We play two dance sets from 9-11 PM and free dance lessons are available before our show.  642 S. Pickett St, Alexandria VA 22304.  703-751-8900.  https://nicksnightclub.com/swing-music/ and https://www.gottaswing.com/calendar#event=18347603

Then, on Thursday July 25, we're back at the beautiful Sunset Park in Ocean City MD from 7-9 PM.  As the name implies, this is one of the most picturesque locations we play.  The sun sets over the Sinepuxent Bay as the band plays!  620 S Philadelphia Ava, Ocean City MD 21842.  410-250-0125.  https://www.oceancity.com/sunset-park-party-nights-live-music-lineup-for-2019/

Friday July 26 will be a brand new venue for us.  We are excited to play Bethany Blues at 8:30 PM.  Don't let the name fool you - the venue's not located in Bethany but in nearby Lewes DE.  This joint is known both for its smokey barbecue and blues/jazz.  18385 Coastal Hwy, Lewes DE 19958.  302-644-2500.  https://bethanyblues.com/

We conclude our East Coast Tour on Saturday July 27 from 7-9 PM at the Riverwalk Amphitheater in Salisbury MD.  While this is another new venue for us, it's hosted by some friends who we've played for several times before.  In fact, our friend Pam from Ballroom Made Simple will even be on site for dance lessons!  301 S Salisbury St, Salisbury MD 21801.  833-729-2489.  https://salisbury.md/event/neon-swing-concert

Whether you can join us on the road or can't be there in person, be sure to connect with us on Facebook (www.facebook.com/neonswing) and Twitter (www.twitter.com/neonswing) for up to the minute updates. 

Also, you may have noticed that our East Coast shows are the dates of "Christmas in July," so we might be inclined to slip one or two songs off of our upcoming holiday album into our sets.  That album is expected to be released on November 9 at the Four Seasons Brewing Company back home in Latrobe PA!  More details to follow.

Our entire show schedule is listed at www.neonswing.com.  We have a lot of local western PA-area shows lined up for August and beyond, so check 'em out!
