Seven Steps Up‘s annual New Year’s Eve celebration is a gourmet dinner plus an acoustic solo show with Lee DeWyze. Many fans know DeWyze as the winner of American Idol’s ninth season. Critics know him as a great singer/songwriter and performer.
The evening kicks off with a social hour and appetizers at 7:30pm. What follows is a gourmet dinner prepared by Chef Dave Mueller of Trillium Catering. Menu choices include Belgian Ale Braised Beef, Grilled Black Pearl Salmon, and a vegetarian option of Quinoa Risotta. A vegan option is also available.
After dinner, DeWyze will perform the first of two sets. Desserts from Trillium are served during an intermission and then it’s on to a second set of music. A bottle of champagne on each table (non-alcohol version available) leads to a midnight toast and a few more songs.
“This is our third year hosting a New Year’s Eve dinner and a show,” says venue co-owner Michelle Hanks. It’s always sold out and has become a local ‘must see’ event. Many of our fans probably haven’t gone out to noisy bars in many, many years, but this is something that really appeals to them.”
Only 80 tickets are available for this event which has always sold out in the past. DeWyze will perform a concert the next night on Jan 1st as part of the Pin Drop Concert series. Tickets for the Jan 1 show are $35 and $45.
