The Spirit of New York hosted our Smooth Cruises from 1998 until 2013, and we are so excited to return this year after a five year absence.

Cruises embark from Pier 61 at Chelsea Piers Piers for a two-hour cruise through the New York Harbor catching the amazing views of the New York City skyline, the Statue of Liberty and the Brooklyn Bridge among others.

We present a reunion with The Special Efx All Stars – An All Star Line up featuring Chielli Minucci, Regina Carter, Eric Marienthal, Gerald Veasley, and Lao Tizer.

Rick Braun with Dave Koz, Richard Elliot, Nick Colionne, Mindi Abair

What is it like? On New Year’s Eve, step into our Starry, Starry Night themed event that starts with a reception, entertainment, and appetizers. Next you will enter the dining ballroom for the music of red-hot guitarist and vocalist Nick Colionne, savor a delicious gourmet meal, warm up your dancing shoes, and enjoy the company of your table mates – both old and new friends!
Then we really get the party going as we are joined by the headliners. Rick Braun, our host and trumpeter extraordinaire, brings world class musicians with him each year, and this year is no exception, as he is joined by nine-time GRAMMY® nominated saxophonist Dave Koz and the soulful sounds of Richard Elliot who will all bring the house down to ring in the New Year!

As if that isn’t enough, be there on December 30th to join Rick in a golf tournament for fun and fundraising. And then that evening join us for Start the Party Early, featuring the one and only saxophonist and vocalist Mindi Abair, in a casual concert to get us in party spirits! This event sells out every year, so don’t delay. Links to purchase tickets to Start the Party Early PLUS a great hotel rate only our attendees can get, will be available in your ticket confirmation when you buy tickets for the main show.
