 8th ANNIVERSARY CELEBRATION! 
at Centro Asturiano in Tampa
featuring the Dual-Sax Jump Swingin' Blues of...
The Steve Arvey Band!

Friday,  September 12th,  2008

Friday, September 12th, 2008, in the Grand Ballroom of Centro Asturiano in Tampa, is Swing Time's 8th Anniversary Celebration, featuring live & swingin' music by The Steve Arvey Band!  The Celebration includes hours of live music & dancing (9pm-1am), a group swing-dance lesson (8-9pm; no partner needed), anniversary cake, prize giveaways, and a dance contest at intermission with $100 cash first prize!

The Steve Arvey Band is a dual-sax-infused combo that jumps & swings the blues!  Fronted by blues great, Steve Arvey, on vocals and guitar, the band also includes two saxophonists on tenor & baritone sax, plus bass player and drummer.  The band serves up a mix of swingin' originals and covers influenced by musical styles ranging from New Orleans R&B, to 50's & 60's Rock'n'Roll, to Soul, Jazz & Blues.  At their prior Swing Time debut, The Steve Arvey Band gave an incredible performance and was a huge hit with dancers!

Steve Arvey is a master of the blues, whose musical career has spanned over three decades.  He's toured and performed all over the USA, Europe, Canada, Australia, and New Zealand, at thousands of venues, clubs, events, and festivals.  He's played prestigious blues festivals too numerous to mention, each time beating out hundreds of competing acts to secure a performance spot in the festival's lineup.  In fact, Steve holds the record for the most consecutive appearances -- 7 years in a row -- at the world-renowned Chicago Blues Festival!  A veteran of the Chicago blues scene, Steve has played with musical greats Hubert Sumlin, Eddie Clearwater, Jimmy Rogers, Homesick James, and Honeyboy Edwards, to name just a few.  In fact, Steve's music career started when he was a student at the University of Florida, where his band regularly backed none other than blues legend Bo Diddley!  Steve Arvey has recorded five CDs, his music has received airplay at blues radio stations across the USA, and he maintains a busy touring schedule across three continents!

Swing Time is Florida's Premier Swing Event, held one Friday each month at Centro Asturiano in Tampa.  Centro Asturiano is located at 1913 N. Nebraska Ave., Tampa FL 33602 (at the corner of Palm Ave. & Nebraska Ave. in Ybor City).
