The Chris Millington Band will help ring in 2023 at Sidney’s Mary Winspear Centre.

The band — which has been entertaining for three decades — will play centre’s Bodine Hall as part of a dinner and dance catered by Island Culinary Service from 5:30 to 9 p.m.

The ticket price includes party favours, a buffet dinner featuring roast beef, champagne for a traditional toast and a photo booth.

And, of course, lots of music from a seven-piece band.

“We perform tunes from Patti Labelle and Jennifer Lopez to Pharell Williams and Bruno Mars, Earth Wind and Fire, Joe Cocker and Christopher Cross and tons of R&B,” said Chris Millington, the band’s name-sake. “We make no bones about it (in trying to) keep the dance floor packed. The set list is determined by having watched audience reactions from years of live performances. We want the audience to have a great evening with lots fun. Lets party.”
