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