This is Definitely not your Normal Christmas Concert!
Presenting a unique Christmas experience! No Jingle Bells, Santa Smells, Rudolf the Red Nose Reindeer or Frosty the Snowman. Not that we don’t like those songs but, we wanted to provide something completely different. Get ready to boogie into the Christmas season.
This popular live music event features Hank Lionhart & Uncle Wiggly’s Hot Shoes Blues Band from Victoria & their Annual Christmas Blues Concert Tour – A Tribute to the Blues Songs of Christmas.
With Special Guests Jimmy LeGuilloux, Rick Zipp, Anna Jacyszyn, “Poppa Dawg”, Gary Turlock and Rob Schaefer performing other Christmas genres. Something for everybody.
You will hear songs written or recorded by the likes of Louis Jordan, Big Joe Turner, BB King, Eric Clapton, Charles Brown, Etta James, and so many more. A look into the soul of some fabulous Holiday Blues Songs written by the very Legends of the Blues themselves!
Come out for an early Christmas Treat!
Please bring wrapped gifts marked girls or boys and age range and/or donations for the Food Bank.
