OK, here’s the deal ... a “new rule,” if you will: If you move to Cincinnati and are in a really good active band, even though your bandmates might not live here, we still get to claim you as an honorary “local band.” (If your band sucks, well, we’ll pass. Thanks.)
So, with this new edict in place, head to the Blue Wisp Jazz Club Saturday to see and hear Cincinnati’s newest “revved-up Swing/Rockabilly/Blues/Jazz” band, Neon Swing X-perience.
The group is based in Pittsburgh, but singer/trumpeter Mike Urick moved to Cincy to go to grad school, so the band members split travel time.
The group has been a popular draw around the country, having performed at The Derby in Hollywood and Central Park in the Big Apple, and already has steady tour dates booked into the summer.
