The-Gravity-Kings-500x295

 

 

 

The Gravity Kings

The Gravity Kings’ jazzy, soulful groove-based Cadillac funk is born from the eclectic tastes of its motley crew of all- star players. Started as an old school funk project in the fall of 2010, the Gravity Kings’ grooves and arrangements make dance floors bounce and derrières move with a funky cocktail of raw, high-energy grit, funk pockets, and smooth West Coast horns.

 

Moonspinners

The Moonspinners in the Lounge!

The 5-piece Moonspinners play a wide variety of music with a 60’s-esque pop sensibility:  rock and roll, soul, girl-group, French and Italian pop, lounge and even some garage rock and 70’s punk. The Moonspinners combine insouciance with sophistication – and people love it!

Swedish pancakes

 

 

“Pancake Toast” after Midnight!

There will be a complimentary Swedish Style “Pancake toast” breakfast snack to bring in the New Year that starts at exactly 12:15am.  In addition, there will be a Swedish style holiday smorgasbord available for purchase from 8- midnight, with small plate options.  There are 3 floors of fun, with a bar and several bartenders, so you can relax and leave the cooking to the Swedes.  And if you don’t want to drive, the Hyatt Place hotel offers free shuttle service for guests, and you can book that service directly with the hotel.

Swedish-Cultural-Center

Ring in the New Year at the architecturally significant Swedish Club

The Swedish Cultural Center, located at 1920 Dexter Avenue North on the west side of Lake Union, is a striking example of post-war Modernism in Seattle. Designed by the firm of Steinhart Theriault & Anderson, the steel framed building features three stories above a full basement, and was built in 1961 for a cost of around $400,000.

The Swedish Club has used a “Three Crowns” Icon for its building logo for decades… in fact the upstairs lounge is called the Three Crowns Lounge. You will find actual beautiful hand-crafted metal crowns on the front doors of the building (they are used as door handles). By coincidence there are also three different floors in the facility, and we have matched them up with three great theme rooms for the event… So welcome one, welcome all to the Inaugural “Three Crowns New Years Eve Ball!”

Tickets are going fast so order now at Brown Paper Tickets.

Don’t want to drive but still want to have fun?  Book a room at the Hyatt Place in Downtown Seattle and they’ll shuttle you to and from the party in style, plus enjoy breakfast and a late check-out!

In addition to all these great bands, don’t miss these DJ’s!  

Deejay Joey Webb (HouseMen/SF, PASSAGE/Seattle) has been spinning the hot wax from San Francisco to Seattle on a regular basis for several years – He rocks at many top clubs and events and is sure to keep the dance floor packed as he spins between the band sets in this very cool space.

DJ E-Z ACTION has been on the scene Since the late 90?s, spinning at the Backdoor Ultra-lounge, Studio 66, and various clubs and venues throughout the 2000?s. Lounge, 60?s garage, French Ye Ye, soul, funk, 80?s and deep couch music being his main forte.

Agent Double-O S.O.U.L. regularly takes time away from his career as an international field operative for a mysterious intelligence organization to devote himself to entertaining from behind the DJ decks on occasion. This New Year’s Eve is one such occasion.
