The Ten O'Clock Band

at the Gulfport Casino Ballroom
This Friday,  March 5th
featuring...  THE TEN O'CLOCK BAND
Florida's Leading 18-Piece Big Band!

This Friday, March 5th, Swing Time hosts Big Band Night at the Gulfport Casino Ballroom, featuring live music by The Ten O'Clock Band, Florida's Leading 18-Piece Big Band!  Kicking off the event is a group swing-dance lesson, 8-9pm (no partner needed).  Then it's time to swing, with live music & dancing, 9:00pm-12:30am, plus a dance show at intermission.

The Ten O'Clock Band brings the big-band experience to Swing Time.  When people speak of "the big bands", this is what they mean -- five saxes, four trumpets, four trombones, plus piano, bass, guitar, drums, and vocals.  The band's bold & brassy sound will fill the grand ballroom, with minimal need for amplification, letting participants experience the classic days of swing as it was meant to be played, heard, danced to, and otherwise enjoyed.  Exciting soloists, excellent musicianship, and great coordination as a unit have earned the band rave reviews from dancers as well as fellow musicians across the Bay area!

Swing Time is Florida's Premier Swing Event, held one Friday each month in Tampa Bay at the Gulfport Casino Ballroom.  The Gulfport Casino is located in the St. Petersburg area at 5500 Shore Blvd. S., Gulfport FL 33707.
