Музыканты Элина Карохина, Михаил Смирнов и танцовщица Алиса Егорова сделали сюрприз для именинника в Бруклине. С музыкой и танцами неожиданно для всех гостей появились на вечеринке, поздравили именника, попели, потанцевали и с песнями-плясками удалились, пожелав всем хорошего вечера. Гостей было немного, поэтому все номера программы были исполнены "живьём", не под фонограмму и без микрофонов. Все гости, а самое главное, виновник торжества остались очень довольны весёлым зажигательным поздравлением в цыганском стиле.
