Brandon Voss Hosts Reflections Gala at The New York Palace Hotel,
A Decedent and Futuristic New Years Eve Experience
Celebrating LGBT Progress of Today and Tomorrow

NEW YORK, NY On December 31st, Voss Events will host its 7th Annual New Years Eve celebration, The Reflections Gala, at the legendary New York Palace Hotel in  what  is  expected  to  be the  citys most  decadent, gay, end-of-year bash ever. The  gala  will  take  place  in  the  hotel's  historic Villard  Mansion,  a  Roman Renaissance-style  palazzo  comprised  of five  landmarked  rooms,  all lovingly preserved  to  retain  their Gilded  Age grandness. In each  room,  performance artist Darrel Thorne will create tableaus for an exhibit aptly named Reflections of the Future in which he will utilize live artists, projections and costumes in visual representations  of  imagined  future  realities. Inyang  Bassey and  The  Heathens will provide the evenings live music while DJ Jason Angola mans the turntables. Leading  into midnight, all  of  the  artists  from  the  different tableaus will converge onto the main stage of the Madison Ballroom
for the evenings epic jaw-stopping spectacle. A premium  open  bar  will  continue  all  night.

New  Years  Eve is  always our  flagship,  black-tie event,  explains producer Brandon Voss of Voss Events. Each year, we try to one up ourselves.

In  September,  I  caught a news report  on  how President Obama  had  bucked tradition while visiting New York, abandoning the Waldorf Astoria and choosing to stay at the New York Palace instead, he continues. I thought, what better place to celebrate New Years Eve than the presidents hotel of choice ? The Palace s Villard  mansion  is  one  of  the  most  iconic  and  recognizable  venues  in  New  York City  and  the  interiors  make  for  one  of  the  most  spectacular  event  spaces  I've seen.
The  mansion was  built  in  1884  for  Henry  Villard,  then  president of  the  Northern Pacific  Railway. It boasts  a  grand  staircase, several  unique  rooms, multiple fireplaces, high ceilings with elegant moldings and a magnificent courtyard.

Guests of NEW  YEARS  EVE:  REFLECTIONS  GALA will  begin  the  evening  at 9pm with a three-course seated dinner prepared by the hotels master chef. They will then enjoy the art exhibition followed by performances and dancing.

Gay events of this caliber are rare but we have so much to celebrate and reflect upon  this  year,  says  Voss.Same-sex  marriage  was  legalized  in  the  United States,  we  are  finally  getting  the  attention  we  deserve  in  government  and  pop culture…  the  fact  that  an  event  like  this  is  taking  place  in one  of  the  citys most distinguished venues:that alone is progress!

These recent achieve ments are only the beginning, Voss adds. We will reflect upon them at NEW  YEARS  EVE:  REFLECTIONS  GALA while also celebrating the promise of the New Year.”
