The Angels Mix - This high-energy medley combines Angels We Have Heard on High, Hark! The Herald Angels Sing, and quotes from Angels from the Realms of Glory. After a majestic opening, the party gets started with an intense rock groove.
Minor Holiday Celebration - Two Christmas favorites have been re-arranged into a harmonic minor providign a new teist on these holiday classics. Robert W. Smith has woven together Joy to the World and Jingle Bells with quotes from other familiar melodies including The Dreidel Song and Hallelujah Chorus. Join us in our minor celebration of the holidays!
A Crazy Mixed-Up Christmas Concert - A holiday concert gone wrong is the theme of this humorous number! It's as if the band members got their parts all confused! Beloved carols, familiar tunes, and zany effects, courtesy of well-placed glissandos, ratchets, bird whistles, and a slew of other things get all mixed up. Finally the band manages to pull it all together for the ending to close out this fun tune.
House of the Rising Bells - This song is the perfect concert opener with the clever pairing of two folk tunes: House of the Rising Sun and Ukrainian Bell Carol. It begins ominously and proceeds to combine both tunes in a special way that brings something unique to any program.
A Carmen Christmas - Christmas goes to the opera in this clever and fun arrangement! George Bizet's classic opera gets a seasonal makeover in this mash-up that combines themes from Carmen with numerous holiday favorites.
How the Grinch Stole Christmas - Every Who down in Whoville will be whistling this theme song of the dastardly character from the Dr. Seuss TV special!
Santa the Barbarian - The jolly old elf rom the North Pole gets an aggressive markeover in the wonderfully tongue-in-cheek work for young band. Beginning with a movie-trailer narration, Santa is reimagined as a warrior from the winter wastes as Up on the Housetop; Jingle Bells and Jolly Old St. Nicholas are given a barbaric twist.
