    I recently moved to Portland and would love for this to be my first New Year’s event as I now call Portland HOME. Looking to make new friends and start 2016 off right !!!!

  2. Ross December 8, 2015 at 10:52 pm #

    I’ve been fortunate to experience Anjali and the Kid’s joyous and transformative dance music many times over the last decade, dating back to some legendary (to my friends, at least) nights at the Fez. I can think of no better way to spend news years eve than by hearing and feeling their energy washing over the Melody Ballroom. Hopefully, I’ll see you there!

  3. Mattie Kaiser December 9, 2015 at 11:04 am #

    Because I no longer live in PDX, but I’ll be there for NYE, and I miss dancing to DJ Anjali & The Incredible Kid!

  4. Safira December 9, 2015 at 3:08 pm #

    This is everything I want in a NYE Party; Bhangra and Reggaeton, Samba and Panjabi Rap, I’m going to dance ’til I can’t not more. I’m already looking forward to how sore my feet will feel the next morning.

  5. Winston Rivas December 9, 2015 at 4:03 pm #

    Can’t wait to spend NYE on the right foot or dancefloor. Huge fan of Que Bajo and Uproot Andy can’t wait for this!! <3

  6. Banzai December 9, 2015 at 4:52 pm #

    I came from Florida and dance down the Ybor city strip and danced my heart out then I moved here, where I am losing hope to find any good dance clubs that play what I like to dance to. Been in Oregon for 10 years and only been in 2 Latin night clubs that have now closed. Give me hope.

  25. Tayler December 16, 2015 at 11:18 am #

    I would love to dance to this!
