BLAIR CARMAN & THE BELLEVIEW BOYS
LIVE at the Gulfport Casino Ballroom
Friday,  February 15th,  2013
Piano-Pumpin' Rock'n'Roll in the Style of Jerry Lee Lewis!


Friday, February 15th, 2013, Swing Time goes LIVE at the Gulfport Casino Ballroom, featuring Blair Carman & the Belleview Boys, an amazing Rock'n'Roll act out of Cincinnati!  A Swing Dance Lesson kicks off the evening 8-9pm (no partner needed).  Then it's Live Music & Dancing 9pm-midnight, plus a Hula Hoop Contest at band intermission!  1950's attire is encouraged, prize giveaways happen throughout the evening, and all ages are welcome!


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!


YOUR BONUS FOR READING THIS NEWSLETTER:  Tickets are $15 the day of event...with discounts for advance purchase.  We'll give you one dollar off per ticket for each week in advance that you purchase your tickets!  That means if you buy tickets this Friday (Jan 11) at the Casino, you'll save $6; if you buy next Wednesday (Jan 16) at the Casino, you'll save $5; ...and if you wait until the Wednesday before the event (Feb 13), you'll save $1.  Now with band and event costs being what they are, we don't want to sell a lot of $9 and $10 tickets, so we won't announce ticket prices at the next couple of Gulfport Casino Swing Nights.  The only way you'll know about this offer is by reading this newsletter!  Congratulations!  Advance-ticket sales will also go online within 1-2 weeks.
