Yorktown Countdown

Bring in the New Year with Charleston’s largest annual New Year’s Eve celebration! On Thursday, December 31st, 2015, the USS Yorktown Aircraft Carrier in Mount Pleasant, SC will not be occupied with the usual wanderers exploring a decommissioned ship. Instead, the venue will be transformed into the third annual Yorktown Countdown, Charleston’s largest New Year’s Celebration. Charleston’s premier aircraft carrier ball drop party will provide two admission level options, great music, premium spirits, special appearances and entertainment, with magnificent views for the holiday festivities.

From 9:00 PM until 1:00 AM, guests of the event will see live bands and  DJs from all genres imaginable, including funk, rock, dance, and Top 40 Billboard hits. Headlining acts include MVP, a high-energy dance band with members that have been a part of major accomplishments in the music business. The musicians and vocalists of MVP have recorded alongside or shared the stage with such greats as Patti Labelle, Trey Songz, James Brown, George Clinton and Parliament Funkadelic, Keith Sweat, Lil John, Widespread Panic and many more. The group specializes in a variety of different styles from Motown and beach to classic R&B and rock, 70s, 80s, hip-hop and contemporary dance. Case and point, once you experience them, you will know why they are called MVP.

Next up is SoulPlay, a diversified group of entertainers from Raleigh/Durham, NC who share a unique variation of talent from youthfulness to years of experience. This 7-piece super group will play classic, funk, disco, beach, and today’s latest hits. Similarly speaking, Lectra Lust is one of Charleston newest and upcoming bands. The quartet describes their sound as “cerebral synth pop,” offering listeners a new sensation, stimulated by a sleek layer of synth driven new wave overtones and warm accented vintage guitar textures, which are all commanded by rhythmic nu disco breakbeats and highlighted by driving bass lines. Finally, dj performances by Sparkbox and Kilgo, Clark Keagy on saxophone and Seth G on violin will create the high-energy icing on the cake as guests will be able to enjoy every remaining genre from the past 5 decades.

First Aboard (General Admission) and Captain (VIP) tickets go on sale October 1st and will offer guests a variety of options aboard the ship. First Aboard tickets will start at $100 per person and include an all-inclusive full service bar, light hors d’oeuvres, and access to the indoor airplane hangar as well as access the outdoor fantail area (on the same level).

Skinful Halloween

Posted in Sales & Events with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on October 24, 2013 by Lowcountry Boil

993429_10151996702142780_1635479264_nI initially wrote about Skinful Halloween awhile back but as the location kept changing, I decided to rewrite the feature with the final details. My vet and friend, Dr. Brian King, has put on this party for 13 years and it is by far one of the best parties in Charleston. This year the event and organizers need the support of the fans as costs to put on this party has escalated after permitting issues in Hollywood, then an Edisto Plantation got pulled, followed by issues from the city and Music Farm backing out. If you have ever hosted an event, then you know what is involved in overhead for renting a venue, permits, vendors, musical talent, tents, security, medical, set ups and so much more. So here are the details….

Skinful Halloween 2013 hosted by Flavor Flav will be held on October 26th 2013 at Brick House Kitchen from 2pm-2am. Music will be provided by Ozomatli, Dirt Nasty, Blowfly, The Dubplates and more plus DJs, circus acts, burlesque and dance, art, video mapping, a silent disco, massive laser light show and the sickest lighting and sound set-up in the Southeast. They will be limiting the amount of guests and keeping the party contained inside the fenced in area. Coolers are welcome. The party will start at 2pm and will abide by the 11pm noise ordinance. To keep the buzz going, guest can enjoy a silent disco from 11pm till 2am. (I did this after Widespread Panic in Mexico a few years back and it is a nice alternative to keep the party going.)

Music Line Up:
3:00pm-5pm: The Dubplates with Zumjay
5:15pm-6:30pm: Cee Know The Doodlebug from The Digable Planets and The CFO Band
6:45pm till 7:45pm: Blowfly
8pm till 9:45pm: Ozomatli
10pm till 11pm: Dirt Nasty

Silent Disco Schedule:
11pm till 12am on Channel A: Jake B vs KlipArt or Channel B: FullHass
12am till 1am  on Channel A: DJ Fred Krugrrr or Channel B: Circe and Rage United
1am till 2am on Channel A: MJ12 or Channel B: DJ Magnetik

There will be some on-site parking plus shuttles, cabs and limos companies running special rates. Even though this a normal weekend concert at Brick House Kitchen, there will be Sheriffs and Private Security. There will also be EMTs on site in case of emergencies.

While this is a rockin’ night, it also benefits the Tanzania Education Foundation and Keepers of the Wild.
