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.
