Party like it’s 1935 at The Dev this New Year’s Eve




Looking for something a little different for New Year’s Eve this year?  Something that’s fresh and nostalgic at the same time?  That’s a NYE microcosm.  There’s no better spot than The Dev and no better hosts to spin your soundtrack than DJ This and Phungeye on Wednesday, Dec. 31 at Swing in the New Year.  The music starts at 9 p.m. and this is a free night of enjoyment just waiting for you!

Both artists will be playing a set of swing inspired dance music reflecting the 1930s and 1940s and their own unique styles.  Speakeasy themed drinks will be available and guests are encouraged to dress and move in period.  This could be the premiere spot for jitterbuggers, lindy hoppers and all of you swing steppers in the 315 on NYE.  “We’re really hoping to see some folks out who know how to do the Charleston or how to rockstep.” – event organizer Kyle Riecker.

If your flapper dress is at the dry cleaner, do not be deterred!  Party, semi formal, and casual dress are all a-ok at The Dev for Swing in the New Year.

DJ This of the Direkt Influence Collective will be turntabling some swing hop and trip hop at you while Phungeye’s set is described as a live electronic performance using synthesizers and drum machines. Kyle Riecker, event organizer and member of Direkt Influence Collective, explains “We’ll be focusing on blending the modern with the vintage to create a unique, nostalgic experience.”  Excellent sentiment to get down to!

The Dev is located at 41 Devereux St., Utica, NY and has, all year long, brought you an incredible and fresh line up of music from bands you know and love to new artists to discover.  Come show support for the dedication to live music on NYE where we cast in things we wish to have more of in the coming year!

Many things are happening in our neck of the woods for to ring in the newness with, and I hope everyone can get out and have a great time with family, friends, and all of your new intentions for the coming year.  Thanks for everything in 2014 Fuzers!
