Doors open at 7 p.m. with music kicking off at 7:15 p.m. The Dev is located at 41 Devereux St., Utica. Admission is $5 which all proceeds will benefit the Rescue Mission.



Corinne Marie took a moment to fill us in on Holla Daze

How did you come up with the idea of a food and clothing drive for the Rescue Mission?

The idea was Steve Robinsons he is from here and lives in LA and likes to give back when he returns for the holidays.

Where did the name Holla Dazes come from?

The name is to reference the sixties, our flyer is based on the Jimi Hendrix album cover of “are you experienced?” so making a play on words to reference it like dazed and confused.

What can people expect during the night?

The night will consist of music, lots of donations from local businesses that will be raffled off, food, and drinks and fun!
