Friday FEB 11th, Swing Time! RETURNS TO Centro Asturiano in Tampa, featuring Blair Carman & the Belleview Boys!  I've always wanted to get Jerry Lee Lewis to play one of our swing dances, and even though he's still kickin' strong at 75, tickets would be way too expensive.  But here's one even better... a band in their prime that's in hot demand across the USA... a band that plays authentic 1950's-style rock'n'roll, including their own originals, the entire Jerry Lee repertoire, AND just about any 1950's rock'n'roll song you can name, whether it's Elvis or Fats Domino, uptempo or ballad...  I'm talking about Blair Carman & the Belleview Boys... ONE NIGHT ONLY at Centro Asturiano!  Don't miss out.... Get Your Advance Tickets Now!  (details below)

Blair Carman & the Belleview Boys are an authentic 1950's-style Rock'n'Roll / Rockabilly band in the piano-pumpin' style of Jerry Lee Lewis.  The band boasts a huge rockin'-and-rollin' repertoire, ranging from their own original songs to hundreds of classics from Elvis Presley to Carl Perkins, Hank Williams, Jerry Lee Lewis, and many more!  Piano player and singer, Blair Carman, brings raw energy and talent to the show, and he's backed by some of the Midwest's rockin'est cats on guitar, bass, drums, and vocals.  This band is hot... and in huge demand across the USA!  Don't miss Blair Carman & the Belleview Boys in a rare Florida appearance, in classic dance hall atmosphere, at Swing Time!
