Ring in the New Year with the silk-and-diamond decadence of The Great Gatsby as Baz Lurhmann's best films spring to life during this spectacular New Year's Eve party. Begin your stylish evening with a three-course dinner, followed by a performance of the popular show For the Record: Baz Luhrmann, featuring powerhouse performers from music, stage and screen reenacting iconic scenes and songs from Moulin Rouge, Romeo + Juliet, Strictly Ballroom and The Great Gatsby. After the show, Rockwell will be transformed into a Gatsby-style 1920s' retreat. Listen to live music while enjoying the delicious buffet and glass of champagne included in the ticket price. If you'd prefer to skip the seated dinner and show and commence straight to partying the night away, the VIP Party Only option takes place in Rockwell's dazzling second-floor VIP salon decorated Gatsby style, where you can enjoy the buffet, a champagne toast, a balloon drop and live music.

At age 66, Steve Miller still looks and sounds in top form. Miller's voice remains strong, soulful, and vibrant. In fact, The Space Cowboy still sounds as good or better than in his 20s and 30s.
And his guitar playing, while not technically advanced, is flawless. He just doesn't hit bad notes. The man has perfect intonation. Miller came up as a teenage bluesman, and he remains a bluesman at heart. So he mixes blues classics with hits from the beginning of his career, like Livin' In The USA, and later hits, such as Abracadabra.
And the songs from "Bingo!", his first new studio album in 17 years, were so good that I'm going to buy the album.
Miller has a lengthy catalogue of radio hits that have been airing coast-to-coast for as long as 40 years. So I was expecting his great songbook. But what I got in addition was a stellar performance from Miller and his band, the likes of which I never expected.
I can honestly say that I can't remember the last time I was so pleasantly surprised at a concert.
One of the coolest moments of the night occurred toward the end of the show: Miller supports Fender's "Kid's Rock Free" music education program. So he invited one of the students, Dillon Brown -- a 12-year-old wunderkind -- onto the stage to play a song. The kid looks like a pint-sized rock star from the 1970s, cool as all hell.
Miller lets the young guitar prodigy take the solo, and it goes on for about three minutes. I was expecting maybe 16 bars, but he just let the kid go off. Then he let the kid stay for the next song, "Fly Like An Eagle." Then the band comes back for the encore, and the kid is invited back onto the stage! A very cool moment for everyone there.
It was the hallmark of a genuine, gracious, supportive mentor, just like Steven Miller had in Les Paul and T-Bone Walker.
Now that's paying it forward! Steve Miller is one very cool guy.
The Steve Miller Band is one of the seminal rock bands of the 1970s and '80s and its songs have continued to resonate with fans new and old. The group’s first record, The Joker, released in 1973, went Platinum and resulted in a #1 single. However, it was Fly Like an Eagle, released three years later, that confirmed the band’s position at the top of the rock charts.
Originally released in May 1976 against the backdrop of America’s bicentennial celebration, Fly Like an Eagle proved to be a career-defining album for the Steve Miller Band. With more than four million albums sold to date, Fly Like an Eagle is the band’s biggest selling studio album. It spent nearly two years on the Billboard 200, peaking at #3 and yielding the Top 40 singles “Rock ‘N Me,” “Fly Like an Eagle” and “Take the Money and Run.”
Many musical groups are eclectic, but few are both as unpredictable and successful as Los Lobos. The band has notched a number-one single, won three Grammy Awards, and sold millions of records. They’ve shared the stage with acts as varied as Dylan, The Clash, and U2. And they’ve received tremendous critical acclaim — from their major label debut, How Will the Wolf Survive? (which made Rolling Stone’s 500 Greatest Albums of All Time) to their most recent effort, 2006’s The Town and the City (which drew four-star reviews in Rolling Stone, Mojo, The Independent and many others).
