Sissy Gilio and the Type A Band

Sissy Gilio and the Type A Band

Long-time locals may remember the giant New Year’s Eve parties at Hotel Laguna, which were initially introduced by Claes Andersen. Now that his son, Stefan Andersen, is the Hotel’s new General Manager, the “family tradition” has returned.

An L.A. and Orange County favorite from 1976 forward, the NYE live music will be provided by Sissy Gilio, who will be rocking the ’70s, ’80s and ’90s with her band, Type A. Sissy’s offers a variety of tunes in classic rock, rock, contemporary and country music and performs regularly with globally renowned acts.

While the Hotel Laguna New Year’s Eve Bash spans its entire beachfront, indoor/outdoor restaurant and bar, several stations of hot appetizers and gourmet snacks will be positioned throughout. Executive Chef Robert Hines will be providing Truffle Mac ‘n Cheese, Beef en Croute, Vietnamese Chicken Spring Rolls, Mini Quiches, Cheese & Cold Meat displays and more. And (of course), your $40 ticket grants a champagne toast at midnight, too.

9:00 p.m. – 1:30 a.m.
$20 cover charge begins at 8:00 p.m.
