benefitting The Nobelity Project
A red carpet affair to dance into 2020!
Join us December 31st, 2019 at the centennial ranch for a night of latin music, dance, and spirits with ambience inspired by top designers set under a luxurious tent.
The Carson Creek New Year's Eve gala was born out of the desire to create a truly immersive live music and dance experience in a beautiful, natural setting without the hassle of downtown crowds, fighting for parking, or waiting in lines. Guests can expect live music and dancing all night in a beautiful and luxurious setting outside of the mayhem of downtown.
In true Carson Creek Ranch style this event spans beyond music and dance, including specialty cocktails inspired by the music, champagne, complimentary desserts, and snacks available from Austin’s best food trucks.
Grupo Fantasma was started in Austin in 2000. The band has been praised as one of the most important independent acts in the Latin genre and has continually defied expectations to create one of the most unique musical voices to come out of the United States in the 21st century. In 2011, they garnered further acclaim by winning a Grammy for their self–produced release “El Existential” on Nat Geo Music which the Wall Street Journal called “Latin music both new and traditional…vibrant fusions that transcend easy classification...” The band has collaborated with Prince, Los Lobos, Sheila E, GZA of Wu-Tang Clan, and many others. Their seventh full-length album “American Music Vol. VII” was released in March 2019 on Blue Corn Music.
Carson Creek Ranch is a scenic 58 acre ranch, rich in history, nestled on the banks of the Colorado River in Austin, Texas. It is the ideal setting for any event, from an intimate corporate event to a festival for thousands. What sets us apart is not only the inherent beauty of the location, but also the ease of access, with the ranch being located only minutes from downtown Austin.
Internationally renowned producers bring this event to life. Senior Producer, Art Arellanes has a long career producing live award shows, television specials, and global philanthropic events. Co-producer, Lionel Max Pasamonte has over 30 years experience in media production directing multi-camera variety and sports events.
Superfónicos, also from Austin, is Colombian Funk. Better yet, it is Caríbe Soul…fed by the Indigenous and African roots of the band’s Colombian heritage, telegraphing a politics of peace and unity from the stage to your ears. They only ask that you dance toward a place in your mind beyond struggle and strife. From its creation, Superfónicos was meant to create a group with a foundation in Afro-Colombian rhythms. The band has developed a musical mesitzo that is ever-changing but deeply rooted in Caribbean flavors.
