Free Party in Miami New Year’s Eve 2008

Bayfront Park Miami

December 31st, 2007 8:00 am -
Tickets: FREE
– It’s time to ring in the new year and Bayfront Park is the place to be for the largest FREE party in south Florida! Join us for a free concert at the Bayfront Park Amphitheater and count down to midnight with Miami's own, "Big Orange." At the south end of the park, this New Year’s Eve icon will slowly ascend the side of the Hotel Intercontinental, reaching the top at midnight in conjunction with a grand display of fireworks shot over beautiful Biscayne Bay. Headlining the free concert is Conjunto Progreso. This traditional Cuban Son ensemble, noted within the music industry as “the Buena Vista Social Club of America,” has taken audiences back in time to the nostalgic era of early Cuban popular music. Through the years, Conjunto Progreso has featured an array of legendary musicians and their album, entitled “Masters of Cuban Son,” earned them a 2006 Grammy Award nomination for Traditional/Tropical Latin Album. Also performing are South Florida favorites Iko-Iko and Betty Padgett & Elements of Funk. A fixture on the South Florida music scene, Iko-Iko brings to the stage their brand of (Americana) rock. With five albums to their credit and fronted by award winning musician Graham Drout, this band has garnered a very devoted fan base. The dynamic Betty Padgett is a performer whose energy infuses the crowd with enthusiasm. With her band, Elements of Funk, backing her up on popular songs such as Proud Mary and Respect, you can see why they are one of the best R&B party bands around.
