On Tuesday, December 31st, 2019, the USS Yorktown Aircraft Carrier in Mount Pleasant, SC will not be occupied with the usual wanderers exploring a decommissioned ship. Instead, it will be transformed into the 8th annual Yorktown Countdown New Years Eve Party. Voted the Best Party of 2018 by Charleston City Paper.

This exclusive VIP New Years Eve Celebration will provide a top-shelf all-inclusive bar, champagne and light hors-d’oeuvres. Guests will get to enjoy Charleston’s top performing artists and live entertainers as they have handpicked the most popular live bands and DJs in the Lowcountry and beyond – They will rock, you will dance! Feel free to explore the entire ship with 2 different stage areas and 15,000 sq ft of heated tent space on the flight deck with the best views of the Charleston Harbor, Ravenel bridge and downtown.

From 9:00 PM until 1:00 AM, guests of the event will see live bands and dj’s from all genres imaginable, including funk, rock, dance, and Top 40 Billboard hits. Headlining acts include Charleston’s premier party band, “Motown Throwdown” led by sax man Mike Quinn and the amazing vocalist Kanika Moore. Expect an enormously energetic performance with ripping solos, soulful vocals, and catchy, synchronized melodies on top of a thick, relentless funk driven core.

Next up is “Minutes & Years” a four-piece band featuring vocals by Jaron Strom from Season 14 of NBC’s The Voice. With their eclectic mix of musical styles, and their ability to blend genres like Hip-Hop, Pop, and Rock, Minutes & Years spans multiple eras of popular music by bringing classic and fresh contemporary songs together. Count on this performance to be undeniably exciting and anything but routine!

Back by popular demand, Charleston’s very own DJ extraordinaire, “Kilgo” brings the highest energy performance with his unique spin on electronic music and his passion for sonic and visual creativity. Pushing his show to the next level, Kilgo will be accompanied by powerhouse drummer, Andrew Ellington for a performance like no other. Steeped in Funk, Future, and Dance, this rhythmic, all-encompassing duo production will leave you wildly entertained and on your feet all night long.

Finally, Charleston’s favorite female DJ “DJ B” creates an exciting and interactive experience with her infectious energy and love of music. Through a mix of irresistible classics, electronic dance grooves and funky beats, guests can’t help moving as a result of the melodious sounds in the air.

VIP tickets start at $175 and include an all-inclusive full service top shelf bar, light hors d’oeuvres, and access to 2 different stages, the indoor airplane hangar, outdoor fantail area and the Yorktown’s rooftop flight deck (which will be tented and heated), large-screen ball drop, special performances and much more.
