When it comes to New Year’s celebrations on the Oregon Coast, you don’t get much more exclusive than the Lincoln Pops Big Band New Year’s Eve dance at the Lincoln City Cultural Center.
Tickets for the event are capped at 100 tickets to make sure that everyone has ample room to take to the dance floor and swing their way into 2018.
The 24-piece big band, led by John Bringetto, has evolved into one of the finest big bands in Oregon and is dedicated to preserving and passing along the heritage of the big band era. Members include a cross-section of the community with musicians aged from 16 to 80, including several talented local high school students as well as professionals. With five saxophones, six trumpets, four trombones, piano, guitar, bass, drums, congas, vibraphone and three vocalists, the Pops put on a dynamic show. As well as Christmas music, the band will be playing music from the swing era, Latin, blues and hard-driving jazz.
The Monday, Dec. 31, dance will run from 8:30 pm to midnight in the auditorium of the cultural center, 540 NE Hwy. 101.
Tickets are $45 per person or $80 per couple and include light hors d’oeuvres and a champagne toast at midnight.
