***CBUS 4 UPDATE***

http://www.swingcolumbus.com/cbus/CBUS4_Banner.jpg


We’ve booked the Inner City Blues Band!!

You may remember the Inner City Blues Band as “the downstairs band” from CBUS1… The band so powerful that it drew nearly everyone down to be part of the steamy juke joint atmosphere. You may remember them as the band that played until the sun came up at CBUS3. You may remember them as the band with the sharp dressed cat on the sax. However you remember them, we’re excited to announce that ICBB is bringing back all that intensity and groove to CBUS4! The band has broad roots having played with legends of funk and blues: the Ohio Players, Buckwheat Zydeco and organ great Hank Marr. They’ve got the chops and they’re not afraid to use them to keep you feeling oh so good on the dance floor.

We’ve also booked the COOLEST late night venue EVER!! 
United Skates of America Roller Skating Center
That’s right boys and girls, you read it correctly! Saturday’s late night dance will be held at a good ol’ fashion skating rink. Hard wood and all. On top of that the Dj’s will be spinning from the rinks DJ booth hooked into all the fun disco lights. This will be a late night you won’t forget!

(We got Espresso Yourself again too, don’t worry!)

We are doing shirts and hoodies for the first time this year.  Get ‘em while they’re hot!!
