You are cordially invited to join us at the hottest, hippest and most happening end of year celebrations in this or any other town, The Vegas Grand Hogmanay Ball! Vegas is delighted to host 2012’s ultimate summit meeting of style and sophistication and kick start 2013 with a veritable fiesta of vivaciousness and va-va-voom at the most salubrious speakeasy in town, the Voodoo Rooms!
Join us for a memorable night of moonlight and martinis, roulette and romance, showgirls and sophistication, blackjack and burlesque, hedonism and hi jinks, glitz and glamour cocktails and cabaret in the labyrinthine and exotic Voodoo Rooms, the award-winning destination of choice for cool cats, kitsch kittens and cocktail culture cognoscenti. Vegas will be spread across every nook and cranny of this great venue with the Ballroom, Speakeasy, American bar, French Quarter, Main Bar and Restaurant providing ideal environments and discrete hideaways for socialising, dancing, romancing, carousing, celebrating, dining, relaxing and imbibing in style as we say farewell to 2012 and welcome the arrival of 2013.
Our live music for the evening will be provided by the fabulous Cow Cow Boogie, a swingin’ six-piece from Edinburgh specialising in Rockin’ R&B, Western Swing, Country & Jump Blues from the ‘40s & ‘50s, that'll get your feet tappin’ and your fingers snappin’. Jump on board the Cow Cow Boogie express for a journey from country to soul where Spade Cooley meets Johnny Cash and Ruth Brown meets Dolly Parton. A dancers’ delight, Cow Cow Boogie are sure to get the party started right!
But of course Cow Cow Boogie aren’t the only stellar talents in this night of a thousand stars. Thrill to the bewitching burlesque and glamorous gyrations of Scotland’s fabulous femme fatale Missy Malone. The Vegas Revue, programmed by esteemed local producer Blond Ambition, will showcase the best in cabaret, comedy and burlesque talent in The Speakeasy with an hour long show from 10.30 pm.
There will be finger poppin’ and lindy hoppin’ into the wee sma’ hours to the exotic rhythms, intoxicating melodies and irresistible dance-floor grooves of Vegas musical maestros Frankie Sumatra, Bugsy Seagull, Sam Jose and Nuno Endo. Excavating a rich seam of solid swingin’ fossil fuel from their vinyl mines our dynamic DJs will be stoking the boiler of swing and detonating dance-floor dynamite all night. Hepcat swing, jumpin’ jive, gangster grooves, luscious lounge, sanctified soul, electro swing, rockin’ R&B, jazz, blues, bossa nova & boogaloo, cult classics & mob hits are just a few of the choice cuts on the musical menu for your delection and delight.
And just in case there weren’t enough glitz, glamour, razzmatazz and va-va-voom in the room already, Nikki Nevada & the Vegas Showgirls will turn the Fabulousness Factor all the way up to eleven and shake their tail-feathers most delightfully. These sultry sirens combine the sophistication of the salons of Paris with the sassiness of the Vegas strip. And of course we can’t forget the hustlers, card sharks and wild cards at the Stardust Casino Lounge, which for one night only will be located in the French Quarter, a hint of the Big Easy in the heart of Sin City, the only casino where you can gamble the night away at the roulette and blackjack tables without fear of losing your shirt, courtesy of our complimentary Elvis dollars.
A glittering galaxy of stars and heavenly bodies will illuminate the Grand Vegas Hogmanay Ball, but shining brightest of all will be the Vegas in-crowd, the most stylish swingers and sophisticates on this jumpin’ green sphere we call Planet Earth. Hotter than lobster-red Rio sunburn but cooler than an Ipanema breeze, the coolest crowd in club-land will descend on the Voodoo Rooms for an unforgettable night. So join high society’s most eligible and the FBI’s most wanted at The Vegas Grand Hogmanay Ball. Let’s start 2013 as we mean to go on.. with a swingin’, ring-a-dingin’ good time!
