Holiday show: For Kids from 1 to 92!
Steve March-Tormé, Vic Ferrari’s Michael Bailey, and Emmy-Award winning composer and world-renowned electric violinist Mark Wood (Trans-Siberian Orchestra) have joined musical forces for a very special holiday show, "For Kids from 1 to 92!"
Like these three artists, this show spans musical genres--featuring everything from lush and beautiful traditional fare to great pop songs and really joyful rock. This feast of musical styles is woven together by the spirit of the season. Part of that spirit for Steve is in singing the classic written by his dad Mel, ‘The Christmas Song’ (Chestnuts Roasting)—nostaligic for obvious reasons. Mark Wood’s virtuosity is dazzling and on full display in songs like ‘Wizards in Winter,’ ‘Mad Russians,’ and ‘Carol of the Bells.’ And, Vic Ferrari fans know that Michael Bailey’s effortless sounding pop voice is a beautiful fit for holiday favorites. This show will definitely warm your heart, and it’s also exciting enough to make it beat a little faster—just the sort of feeling that the holiday season is all about!
The show is backed by The HD Horns (Ken Skitch, Tyler Jones, and Chris Felts), WAMI award-winning drummer Mike Underwood, guitarists Mike Kapp, Phil Smyth, and Michael Murphy, vocalist and keyboardist Kathy Hammond, and with Len Nelson as emcee (and on accordion!).
