Welcome To Bonza Bash Halloween 2012!

Unbelievable – it’s only two months until Halloween, and we’ve been hard at work putting together what we believe will be our most amazing and outrageous Bonza Bash yet!

Come join hosts Dave McLauchlan and Brenton Webster as we deliver  Seattle’s most amazing Halloween experience, bar none, in unmistakable Bonza Bash style. Enter a world of Halloween, Bonza-style, surrounded by the most spectacular collection of costumes in the Pacific Northwest accompanied by all the black-tie masquerade sorcery a ball of Venetian splendour could muster. The Bonza Bash Halloween 2012 Masquerade Costume Ball is the definition of stylish & seductive decadence, in one of the most amazing venues on the US West Coast.

Masquerade Costume Ball

The Bonza Bash is Seattle’s only Masquerade Costume Ball. You’re welcome to dress in Classic Masquerade (black tie + Venetian-style mask) or Delicious Costume,
whichever takes your fancy! This is a Bonza Bash, so as with all our events, jeans,
sneakers etc… are not allowed. The dress code will be strictly enforced – so yes, you can be more imaginative with your costume than “sneakers-wearing jeans guy”.

Costume Contest

We have over $10,000 in prizes on offer for the costume contest, including our Grand Prize of a trip for 2 to Australia worth over $7,000.

More details on the costume contest…


We are super excited to welcome Seattle’s top DJs and radio talent to this years Ultimate Halloween Bash.

Movin 92.5s DJ Marty Mar

Ordinarily you’d find DJ Marty Mar spinning at the hottest clubs in town, including See Sound Lounge, LSC, Copper Cart, Cellars, Trinity, Lucky Strike, Munch Bar and more. Or perhaps you’ve heard him laying down some tunes on Movin 92.5, or you might even remember him from our 2012 Halloween party where he rocked the stage at Fremont Studios. This year you’ll only find him at one place – the Bonza Bash.

DJ Marty Mar will be bringing you all the 80s, 90s, dance, hip-hop, electronic, R&B, and today’s top 40 hits he can muster! After the costume competition drawing at midnight, we’ll be turning up the heat as DJ Marty Mar  takes command of the dance floor and REALLY kicks the party into high gear!!
