Flashback Party Room!
Ballroom One; 9 p.m. until Closure
Party with "Top Shelf" in a Funk, Soul, Rock n' Roll Explosion! This room is always a gala favorite! There's "No Parking on the Dance Floor" as you flashback to the 70's, 80's and 90's with the sound of Motown, Funk, Soul, and Rock n' Roll!
J'Chic Jazz Lounge!
Ballroom Two; 9 p.m. - 12:30am
Non-stop jazz the entire evening! Last year's artists (Richard Elliott and Terence Elliott) wowed guests with amazingly different styles! The ultimate in sophistication and elegance, Richard entertained with Ellington, blew you away with Basie and soothed the soul with the 'Cool' Jazz sounds of today; while Bay Area composer and world-traveled pianist, Terence Elliott, treated everyone to festive, dynamic, smooth jazz favorites!! 2017 is destined to be just as, if not more so, dynamic!
