Neon Swing to play Mardi Gras show at NOLA on the Square

Neon Swing X-perience will play a Mardi Gras show on March 5 in Pittsburgh’s NOLA on the Square. Here, the band plays Westmoreland Cultural Trust’s TGIS summer concert series on Aug. 30 2018.

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.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
