There’s no party night quite like New Year’s Eve. Whether you’re spending it with family, friends, or a bit of both, our hard working local venue staff have got a great night in store for you.

The Geraldton Hotel — Johnny Gigantaur and DJ Big luv.

It’s going to be a gigantic night at the Gero with supergroup Johnny Gigantaur opening the night. The three-piece is stacked, with members from legendary local bands C4, Electric Taste, and Moose Abuse to name a few. Their “rock fusion style” will be backed up by fellow local DJ Big luv on the decks into the small hours of 2022.

Freemasons Hotel — DJ M.

If you’re looking for more of a boogie night, the Freo is likely to be the place for you. DJ M will be spinning the tunes from 8.30pm long into the eve.

Wintersun Hotel — Karaoke and a DJ.

Why go see someone else when you could be the gig? Local party merchants Two Plus You will be bringing all the karaoke favourites for you to belt out with your mates, who will definitely sound better as the night goes on, right?

Railway Hotel Mullewa — Henry and Ranahl.

Looking further afield, country rockers Henry and Ranahl will have the town pub pumping as they prepare to record their debut album. Usually seen as a duo, the brothers will have ample support from WAM Hall of Fame bassist Daron Keogh, and his as yet unnamed band.

Nabawa Valley Tavern — Geoff Udy.

One man band Geoff Udy has been gigging all over the place in the past few weeks, and he’s not stopping until the year is well and truly out. His soft rock sound is sure to get the relatively new pub cranking.

Finlays Kalbarri — Ian Weggler and Carly Markham.

This dynamic duo won’t exactly be burning the midnight oil, but if you want to kick your festivities off with a chilled out acoustic set, this would be the way to go. Two of the best voices in the Mid West, and some local brewed beverages will go down nicely on a warm evening.

As with everything in the calamitous year that 2021 has been, the night could turn on its head in a flash, so as always, keep an eye on the socials for the latest. Above all, take care of each other, and the venue staff. They’re working hard to make sure you have a good night, so don’t be the one to ruin theirs.
