The Legendary Lake Monsters are partnering again with the Prestige Vernon Lodge to host yet another “not to be missed” New Year’s Eve party.

“Over the last three years we have put together a fabulous, high-quality evening to help our community bring in the new year in style,” said Anita Baturin, the vocalist of the group.

This year the Monsters plan to take you back to the fabulously fun clubs of the late 1960s and 70s where the R&B vibes of Motown and the grooves of both funk and disco lit up the night.

“This was a time when the legendary venues such as New York’s Studio 54 filled the evening with songs made famous by bands such as Earth Wind and Fire, Tower Of Power and Motown superstars like Marvin Gaye and Stevie Wonder,” said Monsters’ band member Leo Illomin.

Along with the horn-driven 10-piece party/dance band, the evening will include a delicious dinner and an automated photo booth so party goers can customize their snapshots and leave with a fun souvenir of the night.

Party-goers are urged to dress up in glitz and glam or break out their soul, disco and funk attire to match the Motown theme.

Tickets are $80 and are available at the Vernon Lodge and Cheek to Cheek Dance studio (Lorna Robb). Special room rates are also available at the Lodge.

Doors open at 6 p.m., dinner at 7 p.m., followed by the dance.
