ST. GEORGE – While families and kids packed the Washington City Community Center for bouncing, splashing, climbing and dancing – and early fireworks at 10 p.m. New Year’s Eve, Jazzy Java’s Rock ‘n Roll Grill in St. George appealed to the “slightly older” crowd with its first night of full bar service – having recently obtained the appropriate liquor license – and a lineup of live entertainment.

Headlining the evening’s music at Jazzy was the band Wirelephant, along with The Fission Breakers, Pangea and We Happy Few.

New Year’s Eve being what it is, a celebration of auld lang syne – that would be “the good old days” – counterbalanced with optimistic cheer for the new year, there were at least a few resolutions exchanged. Lest the Jazzy revelers forget, we asked a handful of them to indulge us in memorializing a handful of those resolves for the coming days and year and years and years.

New Year’s resolutions

  • Michael Nielsen, St. George – “I’m starting P90X3”
  • Bryan Martinez, St. George – “Stay off Facebook because Facebook is a black hole that sucks the life out of people”
  • Rylan Pinarelli – “I’m with Wirelephant (the band), our resolution is to defend our title at Battle of the Bands”
  • Avery Holt – “Be more spontaneous”
  • Marlenna Rogers – “Be more bold”
  • Chris Richy, St. George – “Be a better person, but I don’t think this year will be much better”
  • Carmen Lopez, St. George – “Spend more time with more important people, like my family”
  • Hali Wilson, St. George – “My New Year’s resolution is to smoke less”
  • J. Daniel Woodstock, Washington City – “To do something each day that I’ve never done before”

    I’m beyond the age of staying up late on NYE, but thank you Jazzy for giving young(er) people a place to enjoy themselves while ringing in the new year.

    Didn’t some ex-mayor once suggest music and dancing promoted drunken and promiscuous behavior? Maybe that’s extra reason to celebrate. He’s gone! Good riddance!

    Time to repel the asinine law about dancing! One of the most idiotic laws ever.
