Want to celebrate New Year's Eve like an artist?

Inspector Gadje Balkan Brass and Salle des Artistes invite you to join our New Years Eve Party right in the heart of San Francisco! The evening will begin with a classically underscored private dinner for our Patrons, followed by live music, photography, performance art, dance and figure drawings by Bay Area artists, culminating in a champagne toast at midnight. There will even be a live photostage available for you and your party to host your own avant-garde photoshoot! Join us in our creative folly as we celebrate the inspired forces of local artists while ringing in the New Year with friends, old and new!

Throughout the evening…

~Artists will dazzle us with short original pieces.

~An amazing original sideways photo-stage will be staged for attendees to host their own professional shoots (for free!).

~A collection of the most moving images from local photographers and filmmakers will provide a retrospective of San Francisco in 2017.

~Models will pose for professionals and amateurs alike for live figure drawings (art supplies provided or bring your own!).

~And street and Classical musicians will fill the space with revelry leading up to the fantastic musical force of Inspector Gadje Balkan Brass!

The festivities, Cash Bar and Photo Booth will open for General Admission ticket holders at 9:30PM. Inspector Gadje Balkan Brass‘ first set will begin around 10:30PM, followed by a midnight champagne toast*! The band’s second set will begin shortly after.
