Celebrate 1920s style and swing into 2014

Celebrate 1920s style and swing into 2014

Celebrate New Years’ Eve in style at The Byron at Byron Resort and Spa. Party like Jay Gatsby and be transported to the outrageous and spectacular 1920s.

The Byron at Byron is getting into the swing by theming the resort. “Expect decadence and extravagance 1920’s style” said Marcus Corcoran, the resort’s Food and Beverage Manager.  Guests are requested to dress to impress (think bowler hats, sparkles and pearls).

“This will be the premier gig for the year” said Steve Sax, saxophonist with the WellSwung Daddies, who will be providing the tunes for grooving on the evening. “The Byron at Byron is such an institution, it’s where anybody who’s anybody wants to stay. We’re going to raise the roof”.

The ten piece outfit will play a mixture of arrangements from the modern swing masters like The Cherry Poppin’ Daddies, Big Bad Voodoo Daddy, Royal Crown Revue and Brian Setzer to past masters like Louis Jordan, Buddy Rich, Count Basie and Ray Charles. “Our music is  transcribed and arranged from original recordings and represents a modern interpretation of swing, jive, rock n roll and lindy hop” outlined Steve Sax.

With a male vocalist, two trumpets, two saxes, trombone, guitar, bass, drums and piano, the Daddies are in demand up and down the east coast and have a large following of swing and rock n roll dancers.

31st December 2013, 8:00pm  $199 per person which includes a drink on arrival, a four course celebratory dinner and live entertainment from The WellSwung Daddies.
