New Year's Eve with the Boston Pops Swing Orchestra and The Hot Sardines
Party the night away with the Boston Pops Swing Orchestra and The Hot Sardines, performing jazz covers and originals that channel New York speakeasies, Parisian cabarets, and New Orleans jazz halls. “Not many bands have seized the postmillennial early-jazz spotlight with as much gusto as The Hot Sardines. An eight-piece outfit co-led by singer Elizabeth Bougerol and pianist Evan Palazzo, it has devoted more than the last decade to a razzle-dazzle reclamation of prewar swing.” – Nate Chinen WBGO. There will be a cash bar and several dining options will be available. Doors open at 8:30pm.
