Las Vegas Selected to Join DJ AM & Travis Barker in Nationwide New Year’s Eve Party

New Year’s Nation (NYN) has announced that Las Vegas has been selected as one of 10 host cities for NYN’s simultaneous New Year’s Eve celebration. The national New Year’s Eve party, hosted locally at the Paris Las Vegas hotel’s ultra-lounge, Risque and Ah Sin restaurant, will feature onsite entertainment by DJ Jazzy Jeff, DJ Spin Diesel, DJ Mark Mac, DJ Crime and DJ Poun and a live, nationwide performance by Travis Barker and DJ AM (TRVSDJAM) through NYN-TV.

The concept of the nationwide, simultaneous party was born in 2006, when NYN CEO Jann Yogman hosted the first NYN New Year’s Eve party in five U.S. cities. This year, Las Vegas will join NYN’s New Year’s Eve celebrations in Atlanta, Dallas, Denver, Los Angeles, Minneapolis, New York City, Philadelphia, Portland and Seattle for a simultaneous nationwide party across four time zones.

TRVSDJAM will unite on stage to headline the NYN celebration live from NYN’s Los Angeles New Year’s Eve Party at The Lot.

Through NYN-TV, guests at the NYN party in Las Vegas, as well as Atlanta, Dallas, Denver, Minneapolis, New York City, Portland and Seattle will be able to see TRVSDJAM’s performance live on giant projection screens and dance to their music.

“It doesn’t get any better than Las Vegas on New Year’s Eve. Our parties will be great everywhere, but it’s going be hard to top the energy of the Las Vegas Strip,” said Jann Yogman, President and Founder of NYN. “Paris offers the perfect location for NYN to ring in 2009. Risque and Ah Sin will join together to form one amazing venue on New Year’s Eve. Throw in great views of the fireworks, world-class entertainment, gourmet food and an open bar that pours all night long and you have the formula for the hottest event in town.”
