he thrill of New Year’s in the City celebrations will be buzzing through Canberra this new year’s eve, with a great program of free events on Monday 31 December, proudly presented by the ACT Government. Civic Square’s family concert will kick oﬀ at 7.30pm, and Garema Place will host the Bass in the Place dance party just after 9pm - at the conclusion of the evening’s ﬁrst spectacular ﬁreworks display over City Hill. Headlining the free family concert in Civic Square is Bee Gees tribute band Night Fever.
Renowned for capturing the essence of the Bee Gees and hailed as one of the best live tribute bands covering four decades of Bee Gees music, Night Fever’s Civic Square performance will showcase the deﬁnitive Bee Gees collection. Well known harmony laden tracks including How deep is your love, You should be dancin’, Stayin’ alive and Tragedy are just some of the favourites you can looking forward to hearing. Night Fever will be supported by Canberra favourite Vince Gelonese and his band. Vince’s two energy packed sets – complete with a duo of
dancing girls – will include party favourites from the 70’s and 80’s followed by some Latin fever to get the whole family dancing. Second on Civic Square’s bill are The Fuelers, who take their name from nitro fuelled drag cars and perform with the same hight speed in intensity. The Fuelers’ music is inspired by a mix of bluegrass, oldtime, swing, rockabilly, country, with a little bit of pop, and their sound and charisma are sure to get the Civic Square crowds revved into top gear.
