A Classic Rock Christmas
Label: Winterlight Music
Review Date: November 22, 2015
While many rock stars spend their down time from touring luxuriating on beautiful beaches in warm climates, notables from a few multi-platinum selling records and world tours are spending their holidays on the road to advocate for local food pantries and fundraising during the months of November and December. Their mission is to raise awareness for local hunger in heartland and urban cities across the United States and the critical needs and challenges local food banks face to carry on the good work in their communities.
This is the purpose and the reason that December People was formed a few years ago by rocker, Grammy nominee and studio owner/producer Robert Berry. He enlisted some of his likeminded, kindhearted fellow rockers and formed a band! They are the DECEMBER PEOPLE!
Quite simply, they take the music of Christmas and perform the songs in the high-energy style of rock n' roll bands that everyone knows? That's the December People!
Imagine this mashup: "I'm Dreaming of a White Christmas" + Billy Idol's "White Wedding." That's the December People and that’s what makes “A Classic Rock Christmas” so much fun!
The members include classic rockers Gary Pihl, the superb guitarist for BOSTON. Sammy Hagar's extraordinary drummer David Lauser, The Tubes' amazing keyboardist David Medd, soloist Jack Foster and founder Robert Berry, lead singer and bassist who performs and records with Hagar and Keith Emerson & Carl Palmer. DECEMBER PEOPE are embarking on a concert tour November 21- December 25 that takes them to Michigan, Kansas and California for ten shows taking place in November and December in 2015.
The live shows incorporate choirs, drum lines other local flavor to create a most family friendly holiday event called "A Classic Rock Christmas."
Over the years, December People concerts have raised tons of food, raised awareness for hunger and united volunteers with generous locals with worthy local organizers.
If you want a unique spin (literally) on some classic Christmas tunes set to classic rock, then A Classic Rock Christams is the album for you.
