Jazzy New Year

We’re all casting an eye to the future for 2a15, hoping for bigger, better things. But there’s still value in looking to the past--particularly when that past consists of gilded, jazzy parties that evoke a free-wheeling, glittery spirit. The Singapore Slingers bring all the sounds and sights of pre-swing America to your end-of-year celebrations during their New Year’s Eve party at The Kessler, 1230 West Davis, on Wednesday, January 31 from 8 p.m. until 1 a.m. Dress to the nines for a night of champagne, indulgent desserts, and dance floor exploits that include foxtrots, waltzes, rumbas, and tangos. Matt Tolentino’s 18-piece orchestra cranks out the hits of the 1920s, 30s and 40s for a blast-from-the-past party that will kick off 2015 right. Tickets to the dancing and dessert-filled extravaganza are $25 to $55 at prekindle.com.
