The way you start a new year sets the tone for the rest of the year, or so they say. So, if you haven’t already, now is the time to line up your New Year’s Eve plans.
And if you want those plans to involve dancing, live music and champagne, there’s plenty of area events to choose from.
Here’s a few of them you might want to check:
Ring in the New Year Crescent City style with the New Orleans’ psychedelic, blues, funk, rock concoction better known as Flow Tribe. Whether the six childhood friends are performing at the Voodoo Music Experience festival or in a neighborhood pub, they always guarantee to bring the kind of show that they say will “crack yo backbone, flip your switch and send any event into the 4th dimension.”
Imagine ringing in the New Year overlooking the lakefront as live jazz plays in the background and you might want be at Valencia on Cross Lake for the NYE 2012 Gala. Guests are asked to don their formal or semi-formal attire and indulge in a five-course dinner with hors d’oeuvres, live music by the ever-popular smooth R&B and jazz band, Alter Ego, live entertainment by Louisiana GO DJ Slim Live in the Mix and more.
Add some mystique to your New Year’s Eve celebration with the New Years’ Eve Masquerade Ball. You can get the star treatment with a walk down the red carpet, rock out to the music of Triggerproof in the Celebrity Lounge and get a chance to win the cash prize for the best mask.
