Rock & Roll Xmas Spectacular

Get ready to crank your holiday spirit all the way up! This production will surprise and thoroughly delight, and don’t be deceived; this isn’t a send-up to the ’50s and ’60s, but rather it’s a multi-media, musical extravaganza mixing rock hits of the ’70s to today with hilarious stories and parodies favorite yuletide songs as you’ve never heard them before. Join an 8-piece all-star cast of musicians as they uniquely rock their way through Christmas classics in the most imaginative way possible delivering as much fun as Santa himself! For example, hear the blending of “Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer” set to Peter Frampton’s “Show Me The Way!” Each song is funnier and yes, even more cleverly done than the one before it!

Christmas With a Whole Lot of Soul

Sometimes it happens when you’re looking through an old family photo album. Other times the thought may come with the smell of a tasty treat baking in the oven. Or maybe it comes later, during the act of hanging an ornament on a tree. But something will eventually trigger the words, “OK, now it feels like Christmas.”

Ginger Commodore and friends brings you a program of Christmas classics and originals, remixed and reframed as R&B, soul, funk and gospel – Christmas…With a Whole Lot of Soul!  Classic holiday tunes like “Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas,” “My Favorite Things,” “This Christmas,” “Mary, Did You Know?,” “Let It Snow” and more!  Plus some band originals laced with R&B stylings, jazz riffs and gospel harmonies.
