Countdown to 2018- New Year’s Eve in Ogden!


This has been an insane and fantastic year. Ogden has seen a lot of changes, new businesses, loss of old businesses, news coverage, tragedy and countless memories. I am thankful for so much this year, but a few of them are my incredible friends who helped me so much through my divorce including moving me out in 2 hours and bringing beer and pizza too, my realtor Ashley Wolthuis and Mortgage Broker Tom Turner who helped me get my dream house for me and my girls, My incredible job for being patient and kind during my ups and downs, and everyone who has told me to keep going. I hope your year was full of joy and cheers to an even better 2018.

Ogden Originals:

Electronic music in the mid 90’s was the spark that lit the fuse to what became a vibrant dance, and DJ community in the city of Ogden Utah. Ogden’s dance music scene from the beginning has had its own unique, and original style different from surrounding cities, that is not easily swayed by fads. Just as the city of Ogden is a little rough around the edges so are the members of its dance music culture. Despite being a bit rough, the members of this culture dance with conviction and play music from the heart not sacrificing quality or accepting mediocrity. Through the years there have been many different crews that have added to this originality, but one thing has never changed. The love for music, dance, and community. Come join us as we celebrate this original movement with a night of dancing, music, and vibes on the eve of the New Year.
