Join us on Thursday, December 31, 2015 to ring in the new year in Tucson, Arizona.  This glamorous event features world renowned trumpet player Rick Braun who brings top caliber smooth jazz headliners with him each year to help ring in the New Year right here in Tucson.  This year we are thrilled to welcome saxophonists Mindi Abair and Euge Groove, as well as special guest vocalist Larry Braggs.

As always, the event will benefit families affected by autism and this year we will also make our donation to the Black Chamber of Arizona Scholarship fund.

So, what is it like?  Before dinner you will enjoy our Chicago Speakeasy themed reception with appetizers, entertainment, and a chance to review all of the amazing opportunity drawing prizes (festivals, vacation spots, artwork, etc.).  Once you enter the ballroom for dinner there will be music performed by our opening act, featuring guitarist Matt Marshak and vocalist Crystal Stark, while you dine and start to get your dance legs moving.  

Rick and friends will take the stage later in the evening to get you really moving before midnight. First time attendees will delight in the performances of all the musicians and returning guests will find the usual stellar experience and all will enjoy our theme this year – Blue Chicago. There is going to be a lot of silver and blue! For the late nighters, we will have an after show reminiscent of a blues club in the Windy City!

And if that is not enough, we start the party early with one of a kind showman saxophonist Will Donato!  This casual concert takes place the night before New Year’s on the premises of the resort.  Will is sure to delight our audience once again.  Do not miss this show – so plan to come early!
