Sunrise Swing

Presentation by

The Outlaws

The Cowboy Bebop panel:

This event will be like a futuristic 1940's swing club.

Setting: It's the year 2071. Let's leave the battered remnants of Earth behind and move on out to the orbit of Mars, where the nights are always restless and the sun never shines. Casino Watanabe and Club Nobumoto present Sunrise Swing, where the ill-tempered meet the cool-headed. We invite guests to enter a sublime paradise, a place where you're free to gamble away your troubles, ease to the sound of no sound, or dance to the free-flowing groove of bebop.
Sunrise Swing is the hottest club of 2070's, and we know how to celebrate, how to treat you right, and how to let the night go out with a bang~!

What Sunrise Swing will offer:

Sunrise Swing is our group of talented bebop musicians. We offer guests the chance to experience the Cowboy Bebop world first-hand. Stepping into the realm of bounty hunters, we are willing to go the extra mile for authenticity. We'll have a tables where our guests can play a variety of card games, amongst other things (but no gambling, please).

We will provide live music, singers, our own musical guests of honor, and a dance floor.

Guests will have the chance to participate in a raffle, and two lucky folks will have the honor of dancing with our charming/lovely hosts.

We have an extensive list of anime series influenced by jazz and bebop (Gungrave, The Big O, Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann, Metal Gear Solid 3, Ghost in the Shell, etc.), which we will be discussing. The soundtracks of these series will also, of course, be reflected in our event's musical selection.

Our cast is made up of talented and dedicated amateur actors who will do all they can to make the guests feel as though they're hangin' with the actual character of Cowboy Bebop, both while on stage and in one-on-one guest interactions.

We fully encourage audience participation throughout! We'd like our guests to be a big part of our event.

More stuff:

We will start seating (ideally) 10 minutes after we finish preparations. Ushers will direct guests to their seats. Our waitresses will tend the tables and attentively care for needs for the audience. Refreshments will consist of a small collection of neon colored sodas.

After seating is complete, the band will open the event with Tank!

Our 4 hosts, Spike (Naraku's Wish), Jet (JD), and Faye (Illaria), Julia(Jill) will be introduced mid-song.

Our lovely hosts will then introduce the event and talk a little about bebop music for about 5 minutes or so.

After introductions, guests will be free to roam, dance, converse, play card games, and thoroughly enjoy themselves in the world of Cowboy Bebop.

We will have three special guests who will each perform on stage at their leisure throughout the event.

After the main events, we'll begin raffling prizes and announcing/rewarding tournament winners at the card tables. Our bebop group will then put on a theatric event, acting out a small skit from Cowboy Bebop.

We aim to make this one of the most memorable events of '08.

And we hope to put our trial and error of entertainment to the test.

More information to come soon.

Currently looking for a Jet cosplayer- our current one isn't sure if he will make it. It won't effect the event, but i'd really like to have a jet cosplayer.
