Hit the beat at our biggest party!

Saturday, March 2, 2019
Idea Exchange, Queen's Square
1 North Square, Cambridge

This is our biggest party ever, so we called it BOOM!  Join us for a total blast, featuring a night of groovy reiki, sound baths, escape room, exploding ice cream, mind-blowing dance and vocal performances, crazy karaoke, drumming demos, and a special guest DJ who will be spinning your requests in vinyl. Bust a move and learn some celebrity dance choreography, be part of the silent disco experience, enjoy bombastically good food, and boomerang around to try some lusty premium tequila shots. It’ll be a bang-up good time you don’t want to miss. Be bold, go BOOM!

Breaking News: Wil Smith from 91.5 the Beat will be joining us at this BOOM-tastic party!

Food and Drinks that are Totally Dee-lish

No night is complete without trying out some fab foods and drinks. We have a wide assortment of foods that will make you say yum. From pulled pork sliders to ice cream that has some serious pop to it, trust us you don't want to miss a thing. Bud don't forget to accompany the food with glam drinks. There will be wine, beer from Jackass  Brewing, Langdon Hall's signature "Boomerang" drink, and blazin' tequilla shots. Taste Tickets (Food and drink) are $7 each or 4 for $25.

Boom or Bust?

Come and check out our Boom Boxes that have totally fab prizes inside. For $20 cash, you can test your luck and see if you win big time! Each box is guaranteed to have a prize in it. What will it be? Will you boom or bust?

Find you Beat on the Dance Floor!

Ev'rybody Dance now! Come and try out our totally amazing Silent Disco dance floor, where you are in charge of what you bust a move to. What is Silent Disco you ask? It is all the rage, you get your own personal headphones and choose the music you want to listen to. We will have DJ Gareth Carr spinning all request vinyl, spooloops - Live Hardware Techno creating an eclectic dance vibe live, and your favourite hits from 91.5 the Beat waiting to be danced to. We will be handing out prizes on the dance floor between 9:00 - 10:00pm, so show us how you vogue, moonwalk, or hammer dance!

Thriller Performances and Experiences

What's a party without some exciting entertainment? We have got the night jam pack full of performances that will leave you thinking "whommp there it is."

If you really want to take your night to the next level, we would totally suggest signing up for a Sound Bath experience to clean your chakras or sign up for a reiki treatment to music with This Groovy Life. Both experiences are registered and cost $20. Looking for a challenge? Try our Totally Radical 80s Escape Room. This rad challenge is registered and costs $5 per person. We have lots of activities that will keep you busy all night from drumming with Bubba, learning amazing choreography with ONE Movement, or singing your heart out at our karaoke machine. Make sure you strike a pose at our radical photo booth and make your own party favour with Hubbub Paper Company before the night is done.

How do I plan an Outfit that is Da Bomb?

Planning the perfect outfit can be totally stressful, but don't worry we are here to give you the 411 on planning your outfit. For this knock-out party we say "dress to impress." Think glitter tops, a funky shirt or jacket, shimmery dresses, killer heels, or something with a vintage vibe to it. Plan your outfit as if you are going to an up-scale club with a retro twist. Want to glow at our party? We suggest wearing white or neon - it will really pop with the help of our black lights!


Event parking can be found in our lot, the gravel lot at the corner of Grand Avenue North and Blair Road and on nearby streets. Please note overnight parking will be permitted in the Idea Exchange parking lot only. No overnight parking is permitted on the street or in the gravel lot. Please drink responsibly at BOOM.
