Eight to the Bar is a pioneer of the modern swing resurgence, together for 35 years and recording 12 albums!  The band swings with a jump jive, jump blues, and boogie woogie sound that inspires dancers wherever they go.  The band is known for the vocal harmonies created by their two female singers and backed by boogie-woogie piano, sax, and an all-star rhythm section.  Eight to the Bar plays about 200 events each year, including prestigious shows, venues, festivals, and dances across the globe!  They love to perform for swing dancers!  They've appeared in concert with Ray Charles, Manhattan Transfer, Roy Orbison, Big Bad Voodoo Daddy, Robert Cray, and Neil Young, to name a few.  And a fun fact for the road... Eight to the Bar's sax player, Collin Tilton, was a collaborator of superstar, Van Morrison, playing sax and flute on the multi-platinum Moondance album!  Last time they played Swing Time, they rocked the house at the Gulfport Casino, with many dancers naming them their favorite new band!  Catch Eight to the Bar LIVE, in this rare Florida appearance, at Swing Time's 12th Anniversary Celebration!
