Come to PittStop this November and Get Happy! smile

__________________________________________

Enjoy an impressive live band and venue lineup for 2009:

“ SOLOMON DOUGLAS SWINGTET ”
Friday Evening at Soldiers and Sailors Memorial Hall
An international favorite, this ten-piece band evokes a combination of Basie and Ellington, playing a variety of big band favorites and classic jazz numbers. A swing dancer himself, Douglas knows how to play for the dance floor and is sure to start the weekend off with a bang! http://solomondouglas.com/

“ RICK MATT PROJECT ”
Friday Late Night at Wightman Community Center
A PittStop crowd pleaser. They use their classic jazz to bring a fresh and lively interpretation to our favorite swing standards. RMP intimately knows the Pittsburgh swing scene and always plays exactly what we need to wow us through the evening!

“ DJ DANCE ”
Saturday Afternoon at St. Nicholas Greek Othodox Cathedral
DJ’s you will love...spinning your favorite tunes.

“ JIMMY SAPIENZA’S FIVE GUYS NAMED MOE ”
Saturday Evening at St. Nicholas Greek Orthodox Cathedral
This band features a classic swing sound reminiscent of Louis Jordan and Louie Prima. Adding Kenny Blake on sax, plus the energy of Lindy Hoppers, they’ve always been extra hot at PittStop, leaving crowds blown away. http://www.jimmysapienza.com/

“ Sweaty Betty Blues Band ”
Saturday Late Night at Wightman Community Center
Bluesy, grindy and jazzy! Marcy Brown sings with soul and grit for your late-nite dancing pleasure. Described as “turbo-charged jazz riffs into the blues,” they will energize you into the wee hours! http://www.myspace.com/sweatybettybluesband

“ Dr. Zoot ”
Sunday Afternoon at The Edgewood Club
The band knocks em dead regularly from the Showboat Casino in Atlantic City NJ to Jimmy Buffets Margaritaville in Key west FL and fine clubs and venues in between. They are certain to make it a fun afternoon of lindy hop! http://www.drzoot.com/

“ BOILERMAKERS JAZZ BAND with JENNIE LUVV ”
Sunday Evening at The Edgewood Club
Pittsburgh is proud to call them our own. The Boilermakers are hired far and wide to play at many of the great swing events. Led by Paul Cosentino and featuring the dulcet vocals of the dazzling Jennie Luvv, the BMJB will swing you out like never before. http://www.boilermakerjazzband.com/

PittStop Lindy Hop v. 9.0
http://www.pittstoplindyhop.com

FULL WEEKEND REGISTRATION IS NEARLY SOLD OUT!

We’re very happy that so many people have decided to join us this year for PittStop! Unfortunately, this puts us in danger of reaching capacity in the smaller venues used for our late-night and Sunday afternoon dances. Therefore, we expect to be closing registration for full weekend passes very soon.

WALK-IN POLICY FOR LATE-NIGHT/SUNDAY AFTERNOON

We hope to be able to accommodate walk-in admissions at our individual dances, and the “a la carte” prices to pay for individual dances at the door will be posted on the web site this week. However, please be aware that only those registered and paid for the full weekend will have guaranteed access to the late night and Sunday afternoon dances. Walk-ins may have to wait in order to give priority to full-weekend pass holders.

FRIDAY/SATURDAY ADVANCE TICKETS

We will be selling discounted advance tickets to our Friday and Saturday evening dances for $15 ($5 off the door price). Instructions for purchasing these will be posted on the web site this week. The venues for our Friday and Saturday evening dances are large enough that we don’t anticipate reaching their capacity, but you never know—an advance ticket will guarantee admission to these dances.

HOUSING IS NOW CLOSED

All new housing requests will be put on a wait list and given accommodations on a first-come, first-serve basis.  If you previously requested housing, your registration must be paid in full in order to receive accommodations.

VOLUNTEERS ARE NEEDED

All volunteers receive $5 back per every hour worked as well as a special memento!  E-mail [email protected] to offer your time. Thank you for your service!

Questions?  Contact [email protected]

Your friendly neighbors,
The PittStop Crew
