The Official Friday Night After Party takes place at Hopscotch 10:30pm to 12:30a featuring DeeJay and KRTU Host of The Cool Out, Gibby Diaz.  A staple in the DJ scene since the late 90s, most know him on the decks as DJ Gibb and to say his style is versatile, may be the understatement of the year. Diaz blends house, jazztronica, hip hop instrumentals, with a side of downtempo and funky low-fi beats.

The Official Jazz’SAlive Saturday Night After Party takes place at the St. Anthony Hotel Roof Top Terrace, just a step from heaven’s door, 10:30pm to 1a with live jazz by Johnny P. & The Wiseguys. The band features original tunes penned by Panzarella coupled with fresh and innovative musical arrangements of classics from the Great American Songbook that catapult the 1940’s to 1960’s sound into the new millennium. Rat-pack influenced style, along with an energetic fervor synonymous with Michael Buble’s, illustrates the dynamics of the group. The after party is free and open to the public, however, capacity is limited, and an RSVP is required. Guests can RSVP here and should be prepared to show a valid 21+ ID at the entrance.
