Following the wildly successful debut last year of THE LIBERTY BELLE SPECTACULAR, with over 1200 guests and extensive press coverage; Dances of Vice, The Salon, The Champagne Riot, and Wit's End have joined forces once again to present another unforgettable vintage Fourth of July extravaganza on the Empire Hotel Rooftop.
This year's expanded lineup with nearly 30 performers, features vintage patriotic melodies by Gelber & Manning and the Star Spangled Orchestra; rockabilly ballads, boogies and blues by Susquehanna Industrial Tool & Die Co; acoustic Hawaiin swing on the East Terrace by The Moonlighters; performances by tap sensations The Minsky Sisters; mesmerizing burlesque by Angie Pontani, Jezebel Express, Maine Attraction, Gal Friday, and Medianoche; DJs Adam Lee and DJ Sei (Rebel Night); cocktails by guest bartender Fredo Ceraso from Loungerati; and the always dapper MC Dandy Wellington!
The party starts earlier this year (5pm), to give guests more time to enjoy the beautiful Empire Hotel Rooftop and festivities. Advance tickets purchased online offer a choice of timed entry, in 30 minute time-slots, to speed up elevator lines up to the roof. The lavish Empire Hotel Rooftop, with two open-air decks and one interiors space will once again host the LIBERTY BELLE's live music, burlesque, dancing, fireworks, and delicious cocktails under the stars.
Last year, over 1,200 guests attended, with extensive press coverage from Time Out, Metromix and MTV among many others. Last year TIME OUT NY gave the event extensive coverage and wrote:
"If you do only 1 thing July 4th - The Liberty Belle Spectacular. NYC's 1920s revival hits its peak on Independence Day... What a treat: The four big event producers on NYC's booming Jazz Age scene have joined forces for a July 4th extravaganza-not just booze and balloons, but the city' s finest mixologists, burlesque dancers and fireworks." - TIME OUT NY
