Pre-Thanksgiving Bash
featuring...  The Juke Joint Kings
Wednesday,  November 21st,  2007

This Wednesday, November 21st, Swing Time hosts a special evening of live music and swing dancing... the Pre-Thanksgiving Bash!  The Bash features the hot swingin' sounds of the Juke Joint Kings!  It starts with a group swing-dance lesson, 7-8pm (no partner needed), followed by live music and dancing, 8pm-midnight, all happening in the spectacular waterfront ballroom of the Gulfport Casino.

The Juke Joint Kings are a hot five-piece jump/blues outfit, complete with piano, vocals, harmonica, guitar, bass & drums.  The Juke Joint Kings rocked the joint at their prior Swing Time appearances!  Band members are music veterans with well over 100 years of professional experience between them.  Different members have played with or opened for a who's who list of blues/musical greats, including Etta James, Koko Taylor, Bobby Blue Bland, Marshall Tucker Band, Luther Allison, Lonnie Brooks, Albert King, Son Seals, Rock Bottom, Ronnie Earl, Hubert Sumlin, and Mighty Joe Young.  The Juke Joint Kings know how to swing, and are bringing it live to the upcoming Pre-Thanksgiving Bash!

This special event is co-sponsored by the Gulfport Casino and Swing Time.  The Gulfport Casino is located in the St. Petersburg area at 5500 Shore Blvd. S., Gulfport FL 33707.
