Neon Swing to play Mardi Gras show at NOLA on the Square
Neon Swing X-perience will let the good times roll from 7-10 p.m. March 5 with a Mardi Gras show at NOLA on the Square in downtown Pittsburgh.
“Last year’s Mardi Gras show was quite an event, complete with vocalist/trumpeter Mike’s car being towed as the band looked on from the window right behind where we were playing,” the band says. “Trombonist Chris even wrote a song about it, which we will be sure to perform on Tuesday.”
NOLA, at 24 Market Square, is a New Orleans-style jazz brasserie with a menu featuring Cajun and Creole-inspired dishes including crispy fried alligator, red beans and rice, jambalaya, gumbo, catfish and more. The cocktail menu features a Big Easy favorite, the rum-based Hurricane.
Pittsburgh-based Neon Swing is devoted to “updating and preserving vintage American genres such as swing, hot jazz, blues, rockabilly, and horn rock. NSX’s style is a raucous modernization of multiple influences all rooted in the big bands of the 1930s and 1940s,” according to its website.
