New Year's Eve big band

Gregg_Moore_1.jpgThe Arcata Playhouse rings in the New Year with Speakeasy and the Conglomerates. A 13 piece band will hit the stage for New Year's Eve at the Playhouse with Tim Randles, Tim Gray, Tim Thiess, Jackie Dandeneau, Siena Nelson, Cory Goldman, Zuzka Sabata, Greg Moore, Tina Garsen, Jill Petricca, Halimah Collingwood, Barbara Culbertson and Jean Stach! Cocktails, light food and dancing with complimentary champagne. Ring in the New Year at the Playhouse as we head into 2017, our 10th anniversary year.

The evening begins with Speakeasy performed by Jacqueline Dandeneau with Tim Randles, Tim Gray, Tim Theiss and Corey Goldman. Harkening back to the days of cocktail tables and candlelight, Speakeasy takes you on a journey of old jazz standards and new jazzy tales. After the show, push back the tables and get ready to dance the night away to the Conglomerates.

At 10:30 pm the Conglomerates will strike up the band and set fire to your dancing shoes on New Year's Eve. Complete with costume changes and theatrical antics the band will cross genres from James Brown and Sharon Jones to the Black Eyed Peas and Louis Prima.

Tickets $20 general & $18 members $99 for table of four includes four drink tickets. Available at Wildberries Marketplace, or 707-822-1575.
