Celebrating NAIDOC Week in Byron Bay

Celebrating Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander history, culture and achievements NAIDOC Week is an opportunity to recognise the contributions Indigenous Australians make to our country and society.

Celebrate New Years Eve in style at The Byron at Byron Resort and Spa.

Party like Jay Gatsby and be transported to the outrageous and spectacular 1920s. The Byron at Byron is getting into the swing by theming the resort.

‘Expect decadence and extravagance 1920s style,’ said Marcus Corcoran, the resort’s food and beverage manager.

Guests are requested to dress to impress (think bowler hats, sparkles and pearls).

The ten-piece WellSwung Daddies will play a mixture of arrangements from the modern swing masters such as The Cherry Poppin’ Daddies, Big Bad Voodoo Daddy, Royal Crown Revue and Brian Setzer to past masters including Louis Jordan, Buddy Rich, Count Basie and Ray Charles.

‘Our music is transcribed and arranged from original recordings and represents a modern interpretation of swing, jive, rock ’n’ roll and lindy hop,’ outlined Steve Sax.

With a male vocalist, two trumpets, two saxes, trombone, guitar, bass, drums and piano, the Daddies are in demand up and down the east coast and have a large following of swing and rock ’n’ roll dancers.

NYE from 8pm, $199 per person, which includes a drink on arrival, a four-course celebratory dinner and live entertainment from The WellSwung Daddies.

Bookings 6639 2105 or [email protected].
