The Black Cat New Year’s Eve Ball 2018

Monday Dec 31 at Black Cat
$30 / Doors at 7:00PM
Both Floors!

On The Mainstage:
Peaches O’Dell and Her Orchestra

On The Backstage:
DJ Dredd and Grap Luva

For more than 20 years, the Black Cat New Year’s Eve Ball has been the best night out of the year. With two floors of non-stop music in four distinct spaces, from big band classics to current dance hits – all for $30 – it’s no wonder this night sells out every year.

Peaches O’Dell and her Orchestra will be performing throughout the night on our Mainstage. Peaches’ shows offer an intriguing mix of the world’s greatest swing dance music – Hollywood’s greatest hits, Latin goodies including rhumbas and tangos, hot-cha-cha from the late 1920s, dreamy romantic fare from the 1930s-40s, and a few humdingers of the 1950s. And because it’s New Year’s Eve, there will be more than a few surprises thrown in: chances to be a guest conductor, prizes for best red lipstick, slow dancing, and much more. To keep the music and dancing going all night, lounge act Tony Anthony and his Malvivants will provide entertainment between Peaches’ sets.

And on the Backstage, DJ Dredd serves up his trademark mix of pop, hip hop, soul, and dance classics. Known throughout the city for his Prince nights, Dredd’s genre-bending style has allowed him to attract a following of people just as diverse as his vast vinyl collection. It’s no wonder he’s been tapped to DJ for the likes of Dave Chappelle, Bill Murray, Stevie Wonder, and Berry Gordy.
