December 31

Join us in the Nova Scotia Ballroom at the Halifax Marriott Harbourfront Hotel as two of Halifax’s favourite dance bands light up the dance floor on NYE!

The Mellotones are a hard-working, well-oiled collection of some of the region’s best musicians. Combining powerful vocals, dynamic horns, and a groovy rhythm section with a catalogue that dives deep into the history of soul, funk, disco, and R&B music, The Mellotones recall an era dominated by the classics of Motown, Stax, and Chess Records. Guaranteed to deliver a night of exceptional entertainment for the young and the young at heart! They say we are expecting the next era of the ‘Roaring 20’s’ just in time for the band’s 25th anniversary in 2022!

Maximum Overdrive are the east coast’s hottest new party band — playing a diverse selection of 80s gems from artists like INXS, Duran Duran, The Pixies, Cindy Lauper, The Cure, Madonna, Billy Idol, New Order, DEVO, Tears for Fears, and many more. You’ve seen them all on stages across Canada and beyond with a host of awesome bands—but you’ve never seen them like this.
