A popular regional show band, Boogie & the Yo-Yoz, takes its audience on a musical journey celebrating Christmas by performing new adaptations of traditional Christmas songs and a few brand new Christmas songs penned by members of the group.

Let’s celebrate the new year, and the beginning of our Mile-stone year a little early!
This year’s concert celebration from Mile of Music Presents features three original artists that were fan-favorites at Mile 9 this past August: Gyasi (Nashville), The Astronomers (Fond du Lac) and Meaghan Farrell (Harrisburg, PA.) These three bands will have us jammin’ the night away as we all look forward to flipping the calendar to a brand new year! We know it’s a day early, but that’s one extra day to celebrate, right? We’ll also be featuring some of the New Year’s Encore Eve favorites such as the Chocolate & Coffee Lounge, the Wheel of Prizes with dozens of cool door prizes, party favors, and more!
