Freedom Party® NYC, The Sons & Heirs + New Year’s Eve Parties!!

Hello New Year City,
SHAW Promotion sent out the very first newsletter blast in September 2005, I can’t believe it’s been 12 years! We went from a guerrilla marketing street team, to party promoter, to working with large companies, and now a dad; what an incredible journey it has been. Once again, I would like to thank everyone for their continued love and support, together we can keep NYC the best city in the country with the BEST parties and brands. If you are a parent like me and late night parties is a little difficult for you, bring your kids down to our new adventure of small kid events, The Little People Party for our New Years Day Brunch Party!  2017 was a crazy year but we made the best of it, here’s a toast to 2018!

Looking for something more adult to do? Check out some of the hottest events and NYE parties in town in this newsletter, have a blast and be safe!

HAPPY HOLIDAYS AND AWESOME NEW YEARS!

See you next year!

Andy Shaw and the SHAW PROMOTION team.

Here’s what the world is saying about The Sons & Heirs:

The best NYC-based Smiths tribute band…singer “Ronnissey” and guitarist “Ravi Marr” do fine impressions of the original Manchester rock icons.” – New York Post

…these guys love the band, and they’re really passionate about it.” – Andy Rourke, The Smiths

The Sons & Heirs visually and musically approximate The Smiths in their prime.” – Jerusalem Post

The Smiths will never re-form…so for most fans The Sons & Heirs are the closest they will ever get.” – The Daily Beast

Our hearts are full and our stage is yours.

Love, The Sons & Heirs
