Featuring six different parties in one location, Palace 10.2 engages guests in a one-of-a-kind experience that invites them to explore six different spaces throughout the theater, each buzzing with specialty bars, plentiful food stations, and live music running the spectrum of musical interests.
The pre-party kicks off at 5pm outside on the theater’s loading dock, with an array of craft beers, food trucks, and a live performance by Rubber City Blues Band. At 6pm, the doors swing open to the Grand Foyer featuring a New Orleans themed streetscape where guests will enjoy food, specialty drinks and musical entertainment by the Chris Coogan Quintet. From there, guests can venture to the Poli Club for an evening of blues, “Chicago Style” with Danny Draher presented by New England Arts & Entertainment. Then patrons can mosey to the Vegas lounge on the mezzanine with the sounds of vocalist Lee Dimo and special guest Phil "Elvis" Maiorano. Finally, guests can feel the heat while dancing the night away as the Palace stage is transformed into a trendy Miami nightclub featuring Perfect Timing Band (formerly Higher & Higher). The night ends on a high note with an interactive performance with pianist Sean Lewis in the orchestra bar lobby.
Whatever your preferred destination, the evening’s activities let you select the playlist and create an individualized party experience you’ll never forget. Get your tickets early as the event sells out quickly.
