So you hate DJ's. That's Ok! Ditch the club party and head to one of Vancouver BC’s live music oriented events. There is something just so exciting about joining the band for the midnight countdown. And if live music doesn’t give you new energy to stay up all night then nothing will! Vancouver BC has a lot of different live band options for NYE each year, and 2013 is no exception. Pick your favorite band and rock out with them this new years!
Looking for old school glamour coupled with soulful tunes? The Gatsby Gala at the Station at the Rocky Mountaineer Station will be transporting NYE revelers back to the Roaring 20s! The incredible venue, perfectly suited to mirror NYC’s old Grand Central Station, will host 1,100 guests and showcase The Ten Souljers band. For more excitement, the party planners threw in some show-girls and an indoor new years firework display to make the night extra lavish.
Want to swap the more dressed-up affairs for a low-key hangout with brews? The Whisky Songs New Years Party is offering a less fancy, but just as exciting option to kick off 2014. Whisky Songs, the three piece rock band from Vancouver BC, meshes blues, hip-hop and a little bit of psychedelic notes into their music which is known for keeping the crowd moving all night. The party also gives NYE revelers the possibility to chow down before hand on a four-course meal with beer pairings. Champagne will be flowing too!
To check out one of Vancouver BC’s more adult oriented parties you’ll have to head to the Roxy New Years Eve at the Roxy Cabaret. The Roxy is known for its loyal clientele and the international visitors that can’t stay away from its legendary stage. There will definitely be a band playing (The Bulge), but we have a feeling that’s not the only show that will be put on.
New Years Eve doesn’t have to entail getting sweaty on the techno dance floor. Vancouver BC NYE parties are definitely giving people the option to stay away from the bump and grind scene in favor of a more live-music feel. Raise your glass with the rest of the World at midnight, but feel like you can wear your jeans too. Check below for all of the NYE 2013 events featuring live bands. Buy tickets quickly though! Wait too much longer and you could miss out.
