Pittsburgh is Swingin’
8 to the Bar
November 21-23

http://www.pittstoplindyhop.com

First on the venue for Friday night, we will have the Boilermaker Jazz Band! This band is much loved in cities all over the East Coast, but based--and also much adored--in Pittsburgh. They have been a favorite at PittStop since the very beginning. You will certainly enjoy their solid musicianship, fantastic selection of real swingin’ jazz tunes, and the talent of their vocalist Jennie Luvv.

Dr. Nelson Harrison’s Blue to the Bone follows the Boilermakers for the Saturday morning 1-5am dance.

An up-and-coming swing band in Pittsburgh, led by Dr. Nelson Harrison, a legend in the Pittsburgh and national jazz and swing scenes. Dr. Harrison has played with the greats such as Jay McShann, Earl “Fatha” Hines, Count Basie, and Andy Bey. Trained as a clinical psychologist, he’s also sure to cure what ails you.

On Saturday afternoon from 1-5pm, there will be a DJ dance.

George Gee and the Jump Jivin’ Wailers will perform Saturday evening from 8pm to midnight.

George Gee got his start in Pittsburgh, and we’re pleased to bring him and his orchestra back from New York City once again. A showman like no other, George Gee will bring you back to the big band era!

More Details Coming Soon

If you’re anything like me, you want to save money whenever and wherever you can.

PittStop Early Bird Registration ends October 31st. The moment October is over and done with, the price of PittStop goes up ten extra dollars.

You have only ten days left. Don’t wait a moment longer.

!!!

There’s only one month left until PittStop begins!

Jimmy Sapienza’s Five Guys Named Moe is our band for the Sunday afternoon dance from 1pm-5pm.

5 Guys Named Moe is one of Pittsburgh’s mainstay swing bands, and feature a classic swing sound reminiscent of Louis Jordan, and Louie Prima. The addition of “Steeltown Sax Sensation” Kenny Blake makes them even hotter.

It’s your lucky day!

For all of you stragglers, Early Bird registration has been extended to November 3rd, so there is still time for you to take advantage of our lower full registration price of $55.

Remember that housing is available for paid registrants only.  Please register and pay asap, so that PittStop’s housing coordinator, Liz, isn’t bombarded with last minute housing requests.

Register online at http://www.pittstoplindyhop.com/register.html

Thanks!

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Just a friendly reminder that PittStop Lindy Hop 2008 is only one week away.

I hope that some of you will decide to come.

Our full weekend price is $65 , a great deal when you consider that six out of seven of our dances will have a live band playing. Which is unprecedented for us and likely not to be seen (at least this cheaply) at any other exchange.

Plus, Pittsburgh’s gas prices are at their lowest in nearly two years!

You can attend and pay for individual dances…

Friday Evening: $15- Boilermaker Jazz Band
Friday Late Night: $10 - Dr. Nelson Harrison’s Blue to the Bone
Saturday Afternoon: $10 -Deejay dance
Saturday Evening: $20- George Gee’s The Jump Jivin’ Wailers
Saturday Late Night: $10 - Ms. Freddye and Blue Faze
Sunday Afternoon: $10 - Jimmy Sapienza’s Five Guys Named Moe.
Sunday Evening: $10 - Rick Matt Project

We will also have a professional masseuse at several of our dances for $1 per minute.

Only Prepaid Registrants will be Guaranteed housing, so please register and pay as soon as possible.

Thanks!
