Dec. 9—HAMILTON -The Fitton Center will host an all-inclusive New Year's Eve event that includes a meal, bar service and live music.
River City Band will perform and Two Women In a Kitchen will serve three courses and provide food throughout the night. Bar service with beer, wine and seltzer will be available and of course — champagne to ring in the New Year.
A light breakfast will be served after midnight.
"We've talked a lot more about our experiences at the Fitton Center. Obviously, we provide quality entertainment for youth, individuals and families, and there's a variety of different experiences that go with that, but we really wanted something special for our guests to experience on New Year's Eve," said Ian MacKenzie-Thurley, executive director.
Tickets to the Dec. 31 event are $150 for Fitton Center members and $165 for non-members. This is a new, first-time event at the Fitton Center.
Cincinnati-based River City Band has previously performed at the Fitton Center for its season launch and at prior holiday shows. Made up of seasoned musicians, River City is an energetic, party band that will get everyone up on the dance floor. River City formed in 2014.
"It's an honor for us to play at the Fitton Center. The Fitton Center is one of the venues that we see that is promoting and very active in trying to show art to the people in the community, especially in Hamilton," said Flor Byrd, singer, percussionist and booking liaison for River City Band.
She said the band is excited to have the opportunity to join the Fitton Center in connecting people with the arts.
"I think we need more of that. Especially, after the COVID era, where everybody has been isolated for so long. Now, with these events, you can come out again and we can spend these moments together," Byrd said.
