New Years is a holiday that you own to yourself. In old Russia they say that the special way – and the circle of friends – you spend your New Years night with will continue for the rest on the year.
Let's welcome the year 2010 as a year of balance: Balance between crazy and cozy, stylish and outrageous, cold and hot, beer and vodkaÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬¦but always happy with caviar and champagne and good music.Ãƒâ€š The countdown at 12, party favors and a sea of champagne and caviar, will add a little touch of luxury, but don't you fear – all within the balance of your pocket!
MC Clown Dingo and his assistant Olive will make laugh and possibly cry, but just to keep you in a healthy balance. Snow Girl makes a game for you to find your perfect balance in the new 2010. So bring your big wishes!
Night will open by James Faretheewell with his dark raven night songs.Ãƒâ€š Two giants of their genre -Chervona (peasant party troupe) and Vivid Curve (didjeridoo groove) – will balance out the evening, entertain you and get you dancing into the new 2010 year!
Eastern European post punk peasant party troupe brings the fire of Russian street music to the land of America. Leader Andre Temkin's Russian/broken English lyrics cross the language barrier to connect with our neo-peasant society and compel the dance party just the same.Ãƒâ€š Chervona have appeared alongside Gogol Bordello and Manu Chao. And played the Bite of Oregon, Flutag After Party, Folk Life, and more.

This didjeridoo groove group is in the forefront of the "American Didj Movement." The act is anchored by Jeff Cooper, "The Miles Davis of didjeridoo," and "Captain Tony" Sciola, string wizard on mandolin, Guild acoustic, Carver electric and National Steel guitar. Vivid Curve's unique sound is given a double dose of groove with the addition of "Rockin Ronnie" Lamb on drums and John "Deep Blue" Reynolds on electric lead guitar.
