96.3 The Blaze, Nomura Customs and Attention To Detail are ringing in 2017 with our annual ball drop. And it's an open bar, so free champagne at midnight just seems silly now, doesn't it?

  • The Blaze New Year's Eve Ball
  • Saturday, December 31st
  • Loyola Ram Activity Center, corner of South 1st West & California Street, next to Bargain Corner.
  • $20 admission includes an open bar with beer and liquor.
  • Music by Blessiddoom, Switch Off Safety, A Balance Of Power, DJ Rebar, Tyler Overtime and the Blue Collar Band featuring Dayv Drake on drums, Dex Eastwood and Chaos II Clarity featuring G Nizzle on drums.
  • Diablo's Taco truck on site for food purchases.
  • Ball Drop at midnight
  • Blaze formal
  • Prizes, woop woop!
  • Uber will be on had to offer safe rides home.

We are encouraging "Blaze formal" attire again this year, meaning a tuxedo shirt and shorts or band shirt and tie. Perhaps a top hat and whatever you happen to be wearing? The ladies will look sexy AF though!

Since it's open bar, we will be beefed up on security. Rules are: don't be an a-hole, arrange for a safe ride home and there will be a $50 clean up fee for anybody who barfs inside the building.
