In light of Neon Swing's break in a few months, we promised to let you know about new musical projects our members are working on.
Mike, a few NSX members, and some new faces have recently been working on starting up "Mike Urick and The Modelaires." The name comes from the dance band that Mike's grandfather played in from the 1940s through 2010s! We're hoping to honor their legacy by bringing back parts of their repertoire while adding some additional horn rock, swing, and jazz tunes (and maybe even sprinkling in a few NSX favorites here and there).
We could let you know all about here, but we'll let you check out our website and social media pages (don't forget to like and share please) if you'd like to know more...including where we're scheduled to debut the band this coming April!

We're just starting things up, so any feedback (on our sites, on what songs you want to hear us play, etc.) would be greatly appreciated. And please help us spread the word about this exciting new project!
