Boogie Under the Golden Gate New Year's Eve
The Travis Marina Bar & Grill, formerly the Presidio Yacht Club, is on the Sausalito side of the bridge, and boasts the undisputed best panorama of San Francisco Bay. The Retrobates are returning by popular demand for their eighth year. Their dance crowd is always looking forward to the event-- just about the most fun you can have with both feet on the floor.
The ticket price includes-- besides the most breathtaking view any Bay Area club can brag about-- complimentary champagne at midnight, helium cow balloons-- and despite frivolously Korny Kowboy decor, the Retrobates are nothing short of the best swing dance band around. If you hop outside at midnight, you can see the fireworks across the Bay in San Francisco.
The Retrobates include Western Swing Hall-of-Famer Mylos "Boogie" Sonka on pedal steel and vocals, Emily Bonn and trumpeter Ray Green on big-band vocalizin', "Fairfax Sax" veteran Dale Alstrom on tenor sax and clarinet, Fiddle Ray Landsberg on you can guess what, John Tuttle on guitar, piano, accordion and vocal harmony, and the new kid in the corral, veteran Michael Price on doghouse bass. Pete Lind, the best in the West, will be flogging the skins.
