Louie Bello, SJ Torres and Joe Bermudez

The people that make the city of Boston come alive came alive themselves at this year’s Boston Nightlife Awards held at Howl at the Moon and Down Ultra Lounge. It was a who’s who of Boston’s best from 6one7 Productions to DJ Richard Fraioli to crooner Louie Bello. They all came out on a cold Wednesday night to mix, mingle and enjoy a night filled with drink, food, laughter and great performances!

Admission was FREE for the general public thanks to the main sponsor of the event, Budweiser. The evening started in Down Ultra Lounge with a VIP pre-party featuring DJ Joe Bermudez from Amp 103.3 and DJ D-WiLL. The venue was packed when the show commenced at 9:00pm with hosts Maverik from Jamn’ 94.5 and Brittany Baldi from MTV’s “The Challenge” and “Are You the One”.

Singer MB Padfield

The crowd was instantly put into hyper-drive with the first performer Connor Street and his back up dancers’ moves. Other performers gracing the stage were hot rockers (in every way!) M.B. Padfield and Natalie Joly. Ben Affleck’s doppleganger, Steve Memmolo brought in his whole band for the occasion! An Elton John impersonator even performed a set whipping the crowd into more of a frenzy!

Actor Jay Gianonne

One highlight of the evening included the “Toast of the Town” award which went to actor Jay Gianonne, who is currently in Boston filming “Patriots Day” with Mark Wahlberg. Giannone has had co-starring and featured roles in dozens of big budget films like “Safe” with Jason Stratham, “By the Gun” with Toby Jones and Harvey Keitel and “Gone Baby Gone” with Ben Affleck.

Another highlight included the Miss Nightlife competition which was hosted by KISS-108’s Mikey V. and model Deanna Marie. In the end Toshia Caitlyn Galligan literally walked away with the crown! Prizes included cash and a VIP table at Down Ultra Lounge. You’ll be seeing a lot more of Miss Nightlife after her Dirty Water Dolls photo shoot to be featured in an upcoming issue of Dirty Water News!

The evening’s entertainment and special guests were all secondary to the real purpose of the night though and that was honoring the nightlife and service industry people of Boston. One by one the names were called and the recipients accepted their unique engraved Viking helmet trophies. Everyone was thrilled with the results!

This was the third year this event has been held at Howl at the Moon and Down Ultra Lounge. All indications are that next year’s awards show will be at the same location as both venues have proved to be very accommodating and integral to the event’s success!
