This Friday NOV 16th, Swing Time invites you to dance at the Suncoast Jazz Classic! This annual festival happens NOV 15th-18th and features many of the best swingin' jazz bands from across the USA! Join us for this Friday's Swing Dance, 7pm-midnight, at the Marriott on Sand Key! The swing dance features 5 bands ranging in style from Swinging Jazz to Cajun to Western Swing! Best yet, all bands playing the swing dance have been instructed to gear their music toward dancers! If that weren't enough, at any time during the five hours, you're also free to wander over to four other stages at the Marriott and at the Sheraton across the street, to catch and dance to numerous other live jazz acts! Nowhere else can you get such a sweet musical and dance experience for just $12 in advance or $18 at the door. Purchase tickets here. The Friday swing-dance lineup is Carolyn Martin's Swing, Tom Rigney & Flambeau, Bill Allred's Classic Jazz Band, Cornet Chop Suey, and Wally's Warehouse Waifs. Students (up to age 23) can get an astonishingly good deal and save 90% with a Weekend Pass for just $10! Swing Time will give away 4 free tickets to the Jazz Classic's Friday Swing Dance at this Wednesday's Gulfport Casino Swing Night! Enter the prize drawing for your chance to win!

DVD PROJECT TO BE CANCELLED? So far, we've received orders for only a dozen Swing Time 12th Anniversary Celebration DVD's. We need to sell at least 20 more to pay editing and other costs and make the DVD a reality. Many of you who are prominently featured have not bothered ordering, which means your video footage may never see the light of day. So here's the deal...step up and order by the Thanksgiving Deadline and if we get 20 more orders, the DVD will be produced and you'll get yours by year-end. If we don't hit this target by Thanksgiving, all orders will be promptly refunded, and regrettably, the DVD project will be cancelled.
