New Year’s Fest on the Blue Bayou at A.M. Booth's Lumberyard promises to be an incredible evening. This 1924 beauty will be your warm and cozy premiere viewing spot for the infamous piano drop. Each year we find an un-fixable upright piano, paint it white and let our guests autograph it all evening as the time clock ticks down to midnight. Moments before the year closes, the piano rolls out hoisted high in the air to the clamor of “Also Sprach Zarathustra, Op. 30”. The effigy of the fading year is set ablaze and as the crowd joins in the countdown, the piano will crash down on the fiery “2018” and it’s broken shell begins the bonfire of the new year!
This year 36 lucky folk will be sitting high and dry above the crowd where they will enjoy the spectacle in first class comfort. The evening begins at 7:30 PM with an exquisite charcuterie board followed by a savory surf and turf entrée created by Chef Ruth. Our servers and trained bartenders will be making prohibition style cocktails all night and giving you the best of the Lumberyard’s personal service. No lines for you and your group. Your table is saved, allowing you to wander the two-acre facility and take in any of the four amazing bands playing simultaneously throughout the night.
The “showtime at the Apollo” winning Lamont Landers Band from Muscle Shoals will heat up the night with their retro brand of soul/r&b/funk. The world renown Microwave Dave and the Nukes will burn up some blues and the Nashville-based Americana/Rock Beasley Brothers Band will cover the Kiln. Your souvenir glass will allow you to go to any bar for bottomless champagne, perfect for joining in a 2nd line with the New Orleans Brass Band, Cool Bone.
Back on the train, there will be desserts, party favors, some dancing in the aisles and each booth has a personal TV displaying world-wide celebrating including closed circuit TV to our stages. Dress to impress for your keepsake pictures of a special night.
