New Year's Eve Blue Ocean Bash
New and better for 2013 – expansive dance floor, all you can eat buffet and the vibrant sounds of New England’s epic party band, Entrain, make for an incredible New Year’s Eve night out at Blue Ocean. By request, the Music Hall has removed 12 tables for the evening allowing for a stage-front dance floor to celebrate into the New Year. All seats on level one (Tables 1-38) are reserved for the Show and Buffet combination ticket, and will only have four seats per table. Tables 39-78 on levels 2 and 3 will have 6 seats per table and are open for concert only ticket purchase.
ABOUT THE BAND:
Epic in sound and kaleidoscopic in vision, the eclectic Martha's Vineyard-based six piece Entrain, formed by drummer Tom Major in 1993, includes conga/djembe/trombonist Sam Holmstock, lead singer/guitarist wiz Brian Alex, bassist M'Talewa, saxophonist/percussionist Phillip Young and keyboardist Tony Falcetti. Their collective resume includes stints with such diverse players as Bo Diddley, Carly Simon, Chuck Berry, Southside Johnny, James Mongomery, Flor De Cana, and Blood Sweet and Tears. They have also taken the stage with James Taylor and former President Bill Clinton.
Entrain has recorded eight albums, with musical selections ranging from rock, blues, calypso and ska, to zydeco, jazz and funk - often within the same song. The whole Entrain concept is based around the drums and infectious rhythms. “The most important thing that we try to do with our music is bring everybody together in the spirit of peace, love, fun and a ton of drums,” says Major. Their song "Dancin' in The Light" has been featured in a national TV and radio commercial for The Sylvania Light Company. Several tracks from their fourth CD "All One" are also featured in the Artisan film Cutaway.
MIDNIGHT COUNTDOWN, PARTY FAVORS AND BALLOON DROP:
A festive assortment of New Year’s Eve party favors will be distributed to each table on a limited basis, while a midnight balloon drop and a countdown by Entrain will add a festive flare to ringing in 2013. Television broadcast of the ball drop in Times Square will not be available in the Music Hall.
