There is a good chance that the TV Stations and local Newspapers will cover this event. Please RSVP if you can attend-and what time you expect to arrive (adding this to the calendar right now). I will be there by 5:30. We may have to pay for parking.
The Public Affairs Manager at the Tampa Airport called today and wants us to promote this to swing dancers who just want to come and be part of the vibe! I think it will be a good time and a great opportunity for needed exposure. We don’t have much time so I will pop out an email tonight.
It would be cool to represent the Swing Gang, Swinging Bulls, Greater Tampa Bay Dance Meetup, and Savoy South at the airport.
The airport is donating water for dancers and I told her we can at least have a core group of 8 dancers who can be there at the opening kick-off at 5:30 pm. Maybe I am dreaming, but it is Friday.
The preferred dress is Mad Men-esque, Lounge, or Rockabilly. The Vodkanauts are playing from 5:30 until 8:30.

“The airport has often been called Tampa’s living room,” said Tampa International Airport CEO Joe Lopano. “This new program is intended to make the airport not just a way to reach your destination, but a destination in itself that reflects the Tampa Bay region, from the food and beverage selections, to merchandise, to arts and entertainment.”
Friday Flight kicks off October 5 at 5:30 p.m. in the main terminal on the third floor between Airsides A and C with a happy hour martini bar and a nod to the days of glamorous air travel with live music by local lounge act, The Vodkanauts.
“We’re thrilled beyond belief to be a part of the first show at Tampa International Airport,” said Mark “Tweedtone” Warren, guitarist and vocalist for the Vodkanauts. “We’re excited about performing and putting on a show that will really take people back to time when air travel was really something special.”
The Vodkanauts have been playing together for almost 10 years and describe their sound as a power-lounge mix of golden oldies.
