A holiday musical extravaganza! This long-standing tradition began twenty-five years ago at the famed Newport Beach nightspot, The Blue Beet Café. It then moved to Fashion Island's Four Seasons Hotel in the mid-nineties, then on to the popular Orange County eatery, Jack Shrimp, playing to sold out houses every year since its inception. 2007 saw a return to the Blue Beet and perhaps the biggest turnout ever of guest artists and fantastic performers. NOW 2015 brings the show back to Jack Jasper's new club Campus Jax (the old Hoagie Barmichaels in Newport Beach), the best entertainment spot in the OC!
The event is hosted by Southern California's own Mark Wood and The Mark Wood Band will cover the rhythm section duties for the evening's featured performers. The show boasts a yearly lineup of some of Southern California’s favorite and most talented entertainers performing all of your Holiday favorites in a variety of musical styles, all with a down-home family feel. Songs like Nat King Cole's, "The Christmas Song" (Chestnuts Roasting on an Open Fire), Bing Crosby's "White Christmas" and holiday standards such as I'll be Home for Christmas, Winter Wonderland, Jingle Bells and Frosty the Snowman. There is even a Ventures styled Surf Guitar performance of Sleigh Ride and Chuck Berry's Run Run Rudolf. The evening's finale finds all of the performers on stage leading the crowd in a wonderful version of “Silent Night and Away in the manger”. This show is a wonderful trip down memory lane and reminiscent of the old Holiday TV specials that we all remember!
Pre-show entertainment is performed by the Mark Wood Band and then the full band and all of the guest stars will take the stage after the show to play an incredible array of dance music to take the evening to an incredible holiday finish!
