Next Performance
Elijah Jamal Balbed & JoGo and Wesley Bright & The Honeytones

12/31/2018 at 10:00 PM

Celebrate New Year’s Eve at 6 p.m. with a performance by Wesley Bright and the Honeytones, a soul band from the funky rubber city of Akron, Ohio. Later that evening, join D.C.’s own The JoGo Project  as part of the New Year’s Eve Grand Foyer Party. The JoGo Project’s  genre-blending ensemble is inspired by the musical stylings of Chuck Brown,  and continues his tradition of taking jazz standards, covers, and even movie/television themes, and putting them over a Go-Go beat. The group will perform on the Millennium Stage at 10 p.m., in addition to more music from Wesley Bright and the Honeytones.

This performance will be open captioned.

Admission to the 10 p.m. show is only permitted with a ticket from another show in the building or a receipt from dinner inside the building. Both groups will perform on the Millennium Stages leading up to the countdown and midnight balloon drop. Guests can also enjoy champagne bars and a photo booth.

This show will not be broadcast
