We are also excited about our three "Christmas Extravaganza" shows in December.  These shows will feature music off of our new holiday album as well as other Christmas surprises to get you in the holiday mood.  They will also include all of your favorite non-holiday Neon Swing songs!  The dates are:

This spring will also be very busy for us.  In fact, we have two fantastic shows lined-up in March where will be opening for legendary bands.  We've already announced our show with The Blasters on March 25 at the Hard Rock Cafe.  We're thrilled to now announce a show with Ides of March on March 24 at Jergel's in Warrendale.  While you might not remember the name "Ides of March," you will know their hit song "Vehicle."  Here's a clip of us covering the song from our 20th Anniversary Show last year: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=L17ufg7So4s .  If you'd like tickets to either The Blasters or Ides of March shows, email srgntswing@gmail.com and we will hook you up at a reduced rate with no service charge.

Lastly, our Christmas Album ("O Howly Night") is now streaming on Apple Music/iTunes, Spotify, Amazon Music, and other sites.  A very limited number of CDs are also available at https://store.cdbaby.com/cd/neonswingxperience3 and at our December live shows.  They make great stocking stuffers!  We've been getting a lot of great feedback on the new album - if you've already heard it let us know what you think.

We'd love to hear from you on Facebook ( www.facebook.com/neonswing ), and Twitter ( twitter.com/neonswing ).  Also, we regularly update www.neonswing.com , so keep checking there for all of the most current NSX news!

On Saturday, we released "O Howly Night" (our first Christmas Album).  We pledged that we would donate 100% of sales to the Children's Hospital of Pittsburgh Foundation at our album release show and are happy to say that we raised $614 from CD sales alone!  Four Seasons has also agreed to donate $400 of their bar sales from the evening.  That means that, together and with your help, we raised over $1000 for children in need.  Thank you so much for celebrating with us on Saturday and for your generous donations.  If you were unable to attend but still want to make a contribution to the Children's Hospital Foundation, please consider donating here: www.givetochildrens.org/neonswing

NSX Update: NOLA on the Square Saturday and Holiday Album Details

Neon Swing is back at NOLA on the Square this Saturday (the 2nd) - keep reading below for plenty of details about our upcoming Christmas album (to be released on the 9th)!


Can you believe we've been playing at NOLA on the Square for almost nine years?!?  It's hard for us to believe - time flies.  Still, though, we sometimes hear people tell us "I've never seen you at NOLA" or "I'll have to make it out to a NOLA show one of these days."  Well, there's no time like the present and so we encourage you to join the Neon Swing X-perience Quintet this Saturday (November 2) for our monthly show.  As always, we're there from 8-11 PM.  NOLA is located at 24 Market Square, Pittsburgh PA 15222.  If you haven't been there yet, don't wait another nine years!

The following week (Saturday, November 9), we will release "O Howly Night," our ninth album and our first Christmas recording!  Our album release show begins at 8 PM at the Four Seasons Brewing Company in Latrobe, PA.  All sales of the album at the show will be donated to the Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh Foundation and will go toward providing sick children with care.


We are suggesting a $5 minimum donation (cash only) to the Children’s Hospital Foundation at the November 9th release party in exchange for a physical CD.  We have also launched a website at www.givetochildrens.org/neonswing to donate to the Children’s Hospital Foundation via non-cash methods.  Don't forget that there will also be an ugly Christmas sweater competition at Four Seasons on November 9th, so show your holiday cheer!

Want a sneak peak of the new album?  Tune in to WDVE Pittsburgh (102.5 FM or https://www.iheart.com/live/1025-dve-2017/) between 9 and 10 PM on Sunday November 3rd to hear the big debut of a new song off of our Christmas album.

Can't wait until then for the big reveal?  Well, you can listen to our new single immediately if you have an Amazon Echo device.  Tell Alexa to play "Red Nose Blue" by "Neon Swing X-perience" and your device will play our new single from the album.  Give it a shot and let us know what you think.

"O Howly Night" will be available at most download and streaming sites and other retailers such as CD Baby and Amazon on November 9.  It is now available for pre-order from iTunes/Apple Music. 

Be sure to keep checking www.neonswing.com, Facebook (www.facebook.com), and Twitter (twitter.com/neonswing) for all the latest NSX news.

NSX Update: The Lodge Halloween Show Friday and Christmas Album Release Details

Neon Swing is back at The Lodge at Indian Lake (Central City PA) for an extra creepy Halloween show this Friday!


This Friday (Oct. 25) will be Neon Swing X-perience's annual Halloween show and this year we're bringing it to The Lodge at Indian Lake.  The band will be in full costume and we will perform a Halloween-inspired second set.  The show is from 9-midnight and the address is 700 S Shore Trail Central City, PA 15926.  The Lodge is a spacious venue with a great dance floor and we're thrilled to be back.  More information is available at https://thelodgeatindianlake.com/.

We're also now able to share some details about the release of "O Howly Night," our ninth album and our first holiday-themed album!  At 8 PM on November 9, we will perform an album release show at the Four Seasons Brewing Company in Latrobe, PA.  We are proud to partner with Four Seasons on this show - we love supporting locally owned businesses (especially if they offer an exceptional product!).  All sales of the album (as well as a portion of Four Seasons’ sales) at the show will be donated to the Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh Foundation which exists to provide financial support for the hospital’s mission of improving the health and well-being of children.


For this album, we wanted to contribute something positive to the community and, in the spirit of Christmas, wanted to do something that would benefit children.  We believe that every child should have a happy holiday season.  So, when we were thinking about organizations that benefit children in need, the Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh Foundation was obviously a top choice because of the excellent care that they help provide to sick kids.

We are suggesting a $5 minimum donation (cash only) to the Children’s Hospital Foundation at the November 9th release party in exchange for a physical CD.  We have also launched a website at www.givetochildrens.org/neonswing to donate to the Children’s Hospital Foundation via non-cash methods.  

For those that want the album in digital form or cannot attend the release party, it will also be available at most download and streaming sites and other retailers such as CD Baby and Amazon on November 9.  It is now available for pre-order from iTunes/Apple Music and includes an immediate download of one track. 

Don't forget that there will be an ugly Christmas sweater competition also at Four Seasons on November 9th, so dress festive!

NSX Update: September 25 at Hard Rock Postponed; Updated Fall Shows

Even though our September 25 show at the Hard Rock Cafe is postponed, we have a lot of other great Fall shows coming your way!


Neon Swing X-perience was very excited to perform with The Blasters, Jesse Dayton, and The Legendary Hucklebucks at the Hard Rock Cafe in Pittsburgh.  Unfortunately, Phil Alvin (the driving force behind The Blasters) is struggling with some medical issues.  Therefore, our show previously scheduled for September 25 is postponed indefinitely.  We will let you know immediately if and when it is rescheduled.  In the meantime, if you purchased your tickets from us, we will offer a refund.  If you purchased tickets elsewhere, you should contact your point-of-sale for their refund policy.  We wish Phil a speedy recovery.   
 
Even though we won't be playing on September 25, we have a ton of Fall and Winter shows planned for you.  Be sure to check out www.neonswing.com for details.  In addition to our first-Saturday-of-the-month shows at NOLA on the Square, we will be back at the Lodge at Indian Lake PA for both a Halloween show and Christmas show.  We'll also be having a Christmas Extravaganza show back at Bella Terra Vineyards in Hunker PA. 

And, of course, the big news is that we'll be releasing our Christmas album entitled "O Howly Night" at Four Seasons Brewing Company in Latrobe PA on November 9.  All proceeds from album sales (cash only) and a portion of Four Seasons' sales that evening will go to the Children's Hospital of Pittsburgh Foundation.  If you want to contribute extra to Children's Hospital, can't make it on November 9th, or are planning on not bringing cash, a website has been set-up at  www.givetochildrens.org/neonswing where you can contribute to the cause at any time up until the show.  Every child should have happy holidays and we want to do our best to help make that happen. 

More details on our events are available at www.neonswing.com, Facebook (www.facebook.com/neonswing), and Twitter (www.twitter.com/neonswing).  Like, Follow, and Share on social media!  We love hearing from you!

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!
