Christmas Is 72

O’s Notes: Pianist Mike Renzi sets out to make something greater than the standard “Christmas Album”. He addresses the Holidays from different cultures and expressions. Renzi teams up with veteran vocalist Jim Porcella for ten duets, all classics done with class.

Award-winning pianist Mike Renzi with baritone vocal performer Jim Porcella present Christmas Is, a holiday-themed album ideal for setting a mood of celebration, joy, and compassion. Wonderful, warmhearted, and evocative, Christmas Is flows beautifully and is highly recommended for both personal and public library music collections. The tracks are “Cool Yule”, “The Christmas Song”, “The Holiday Song”, “Our First Christmas”, “Blue Christmas”, “Christmas Is”, “I’ve Got My Love To Keep Me Warm”, “A Christmas Love Song”, “Snowfall”, and “Winter Wonderland”.

DATE CHANGE! 7/24 Greg Abate Trio (rain date of Monday July 27th)

Update Music Seen Concert #3: GREG ABATE TRIO has been POSTPONED

Greetings LIVE MUSIC Lovers!
I regret to inform you that our GREG ABATE TRIO show for tomorrow has been POSTPONED, due to rain. We hope to present these fine musicians on our rain date, Monday July 13th. Unfortunately, Mother Nature may be our undoing on that day, as well.
We will move this show to FRIDAY JULY 24th, with a rain date of Monday July 27th.
If you find that you cannot attend when the date is rescheduled, please get in touch with me. I will happily refund your donation OR, if you’d like, apply this donation to a future show of your choice.
We hope this turn of events doesn’t create too much of an inconvenience for you. We hope you can join us, in the driveway, when the sunshine & the show date come together.
Thanks again for supporting LIVE MUSIC!
In Harmony,
Tish Adams, Executive Producer
