In brief: Vocal strain

Likely just chronic laryngitis/vocal abuse.
The pain is a little concerning, but may be evidence of some underlying acid reflux disease with a reflux granuloma. I would definitely see your local ENT for a full exam and endoscopy of your voice box. In the interim try some over the counter Prilosec and/or zantac (ranitidine).

In brief: Laryngitis

You could probably be suffering from laryngitis which is a condition due to inflammation/irritation of your voice box.
I assume that you are talking loudly and shouting during the party. Those activities put a lot of stress on the voice box causing swelling and loss of your voice.
