Screen Shot 2015-11-11 at 10.08.46 AMThe Old Alabama Town Revue is coming up on December 3. It’s in the church at Old Alabama Town on Columbus Street at 7 p.m. Come in through the gate at the front of the church. The performance is open to the public with no admission charge.

The theme is “A Rockin’ Holiday,” and the Old Alabama Town Revue Crue is ready to rock out! Tim has written a very cool song about a fairly famous Alabama New Year’s celebration, and I’ve written a new song about Christmas on North Lewis Street. I’ve thrown down the songwriting gauntlet to Stephen Bray and Larry Gobrecht so they may come up with a new rocker as well. New or not, I’m sure Rockin’ Larry will not disappoint, and Stephen’s songs always meet the mark. Toni says she is sticking with the classics and so fulfills the satisfaction of including old faves. As I have said before, it simply is not the holiday season unless Toni sings, “Please Come Home for Christmas.”

Drummer Tony Castaldo will keep us all on the same beat and bass player Marty Martin will provide that low, mellow foundation. Rumors abound there might be a new bass instrument on stage since we are rocking out. Bruce George, singer and guitarist extraordinaire, will be joining us. He’ll be rendering a duet with Toni and providing some other surprises as well. Per our holiday tradition, singer-songwriter Tom House from Nashville will be joining us. Tom has a new CD out and says he has a new holiday song as well. However, I can’t wait to hear “It’s Too Early For Me” again and have asked him to play it. Those ever popular Pellets will joining in the reindeer games and, as usual, adding a lot of merriment.

So mark your calendar for your first holiday event: December 3, 2015 at 7 p.m. in the church on Columbus Street. Come to the Old Alabama Town Revue and hear the Old Alabama Town Revue Crue deliver a fun night and “A Rocking Holiday.”

You can bring Santa hats, elf caps, and reindeer horns to wear if you want. But don’t forget your cushion!
