NYE 2016 @ 159 Manning

December 23, 2015

My name, address, current resume and NYE party made it into Toronto Life!

The party also made it into BlogTO’s NYE guide:

The party will feature live performances in the basement by High Jinx, Fill Spectre, Wolf Saga, Terrorista and DJ sets on the main floor by Sunclef, Wolf Saga and Joel French. I’ve been playing bass with Fill Spectre for the past few years and it’ll be my last show with the band for awhile so there’s your extra incentive to come check us out!

As the annual tradition goes, the backyard will feature a quieter chill-out area enclosed in tents and tarps.

Please be nice to Jesse and Andrew, my friendly + reliable security team who will be running the door…

…and these are my 2 sound technicians for the night. If it were business-as-usual, Jason and Paul would be running a NYE party @ Soybomb HQ, so I feel very honored they’ve chosen to join forces with 159 Manning this time around.

The party is BYOB but Chrissy and Samson will be running the bottled water refreshment stations, hence their official titles for the night “Refreshment Stationeers”. #1664Canada

Carolyn Tripp will be working the coat check upstairs. This picture was taken when she worked coat check last NYE. Please tip her handsomely.

Good Enough LIVE KARAOKE will NOT be playing NYE, but we ARE playing one last show for 2015 the day before on Wednesday December 30th at Supermarket, NO COVER.

If NYE is too much for you, maybe the day before NYE is a good alternative?

Good Enough LIVE KARAOKE – 9:30 until 10:15 AND 11:30 until 2am

During our intermission there will be a performance by Clara Venice from 10:30 – 11:15. Clara is one of the most unique and wonderful acts in Toronto and you WILL be blown away by her performance and the overall level of theatrical production involved in her act. You will NOT be disappointed unless you hate being happy.

We’ve also recruited the incredibly talented Ivana Santilli to sing Prince – When You Were Mine with Good Enough LIVE KARAOKE during our second set!
