Grab your neon leg warmers, and get that hairspray out; it’s time to go back to the 80s. The second annual New Year’s Eve Party at the Gates Four Country Club will celebrate in full eighties style. Last year, the inaugural New Year’s Eve Party was 70s-themed. The Gates Four Groovy New Year’s Eve Party was the first event of this kind that the Fayetteville Dinner Theatre and the Gates Four Golf and Country Club collaborated on. Now they hope to have an even more successful second year.
Gates Four and the Fayetteville Dinner Theatre have spared no expense in making this a fun and exciting evening to remember.
“We have invited all our guests to dig deep into their closets, don their most stylish 80s attire and join their friends for an evening of great music, dancing, food, and fun,” said Bill Bowman, organizer of the event and Up & Coming Weekly’s publisher.
Bowman states that there will be a legendary prime rib carving station at a 40-item buffet, two fully stocked cash bars, and retro 80s polyester-clad D.J. Scott James.
And what’s a Fayetteville party without the iconic group, Rivermist. This headlining band has been performing together since the summer of 2015. They have won the Up & Coming Weekly’s Best Local Band award for six years in a row. Accolades are not new to the band. They were named the 2021 “Vocal Group of the Year” by the Carolina Country Music Awards.
The group is nominated as the Vocal Group of the Year in the 2022 CCMAs, as well as for their collaboration with Doyle Wood on “There’s a River Called Jordan” in the Christian Country Single of the Year category. The CCMA winners will be announced in January.
In addition to great music, the 80s Party will also have food and a costume contest. Each winner will receive fantastic prizes in categories for Best Costumed Man, Best Costumed Woman, and Best Costumed Couple. But if costumes aren’t your thing, there will also be a dancing contest and a lip sync contest. But that won’t be the only way to win some prizes. There will be door prizes and other gifts throughout the night.
The event will be held in the Gates Four Country Club Ballroom on Dec. 31. The party kicks off at 6:30 p.m. and will go into the early hours of 2023. Enjoy the Midnight Champagne Toast as 2022 ends and kick off 2023 with a New Year’s breakfast.
This end-of-the-year party is open to the public, with limited seating. Reservations are required. Tickets are $100 per person or $190 per couple. VIP Tickets are available for $250 a couple. VIP Tickets include special seating and two bottles of wine.
