Join us for our second New Year's Eve!

After their smash Dec. 31 show here, the MINAS Quartet returns with equal, if not more energy, playing upbeat sambas and originals, leading up to an exciting countdown to midnight with everyone playing percussion and parading around the venue. Bring drums, percussion and noise makers from home, then top it off with some dancing. We promise you a memorable night - the ones who attended last year are still talking about it.

Guests will arrive at 10:00pm and enjoy a smorgasbord buffet roast beef dinner complete with mashed potatoes and gravy, candied yams, broccoli au gratin, cranberry sauce and cheesecake dessert. A vegetarian casserole option will be available as well as fresh brewed coffee. BYO wine or champagne is welcome. The music will begin at 10:30pm.

Minas Quartet takes Brazilian and American roots to create a sound that is fresh and innovative, from ballads tinged with melancholic traits of Blues and Choro, to Folk coasting on the subtle coolness of a Bossa Nova pulse, to upbeat Sambas elaborated with instrumental jazz improvisation, scat singing and whimsical whistling. With recordings of original music and a collection of over 100 songs, Orlando and Patricia’s compositions have been compared to classics by Cole Porter and Antonio Carlos Jobim. Capturing the essence of great songwriting with memorable melodies, inventive harmonies, and poetic lyrics, the music of Minas is engaging and timeless.
