After a whirlwind of performances from Tennessee to the Northwest Territories, the band is ready to celebrate the end of 2017 in style and is very proud to present A Very Vintage New Year’s Eve!
This concert will feature the Riveters’ signature three-part harmonies, acoustic instrumentation, some sass, class and a whole lot of laughs! They will also break in brand new holiday songs they wrote such as “Baking with Rosie” and preview songs from the upcoming record they will release this spring. Megan Nash will return with her deeply personal songs and unapologetically open personality. Other special guests include storyteller extraordinaire and Saskatoon favorite, Bonnie Logan, who will grace the stage with her rich repertoire of stories, explosive original tales and hilarious holiday classics. Jay & Jo, the up-and-coming Trudel sister duo, will also make their debut at the Broadway Theatre with their nostalgic melodies and air-tight harmonies.
The evening will be full of glitz and glamour and will be a chance to dress up! Wear your grandmother’s pearls and dust off the vintage clothing you’ve been saving for a special occasion. There will be prizes for the best dressed and a vintage-inspired photo booth on site with accessories provided by Better Off Duds Vintage Clothing Store! The show will wrap up with a countdown before 11pm.

ABOUT Rosie & the Riveters
