New Year's Eve Grand Foyer Party - 10:30 p.m.–1 a.m.
Welcome 2015 with music and dancing, and commemorate the night with free social photo booths, in the Grand Foyer. From 10:15 to 11:30 p.m., thirteen-piece D.C. swing aficionados, Craig Gildner Big Band, recreate the sounds of the swing era made famous by Benny Goodman, Duke Ellington, Count Basie, Artie Shaw, and others. They are followed, from 11:30 p.m. to 12:45 a.m., by Brooklyn, NY's Williamsburg Salsa Orchestra, a thrilling 11-piece salsa group led by percussionist Gianni Mano and fronted by Argentinian superstar Solange Prat that plays dynamic 70s style salsa arrangements of indie rock tunes we love. This is innovative, astonishing salsa with a new, vibrant aesthetic. Free horn noise-makers will be handed out for the big balloon countdown to midnight. This party is FREE for all patrons with any December 31 evening performance tickets or Roof Terrace Restaurant receipt from that evening.
