Neon Swing X-perience Friday June 14th 2019

Formed in 1998 by Mike Urick and a rag-tag group of musicians, NSX has been relentlessly 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. The songs on the band’s new album represent a mix of originals and covers (both well-known and obscure) that seamlessly blend the group’s musical inspirations. In addition to Urick (on lead vocals, trumpet, and noseflute), the current line-up features Wally Hunter (sax, clarinet, trumpet), Joe Palacki (drums, percussion), Steve Tomkowitz (sax, lead vocals), Dave Frye (guitar), Chris Dufalla (trombone, lead vocals), Carmen Marotta (piano, keys, lead vocals), and Ken Reeser and Randy Miller (splitting bass duties).
