Shirley Andress returns with her 8th annual Christmas At The Shedd, featuring Tracy Williams, Marisa Frantz, Bob Cross and Bill Hulings fronting Jesse Cloninger and the Emerald City Jazz Kings in Christmas Swing configuration! Look for all of your favorites, plus a few surprises in this heartwarming evening of Christmas cheer and togetherness tailored to this season's Jazz Kings 20th Anniversary of Swing!.. And since so many of our best-loved Christmas songs were written during the Swing Era, that's not going to be so hard to do: look for old favorites like "White Christmas" (1942), "I'll Be Home For Christmas" (1943), "The Christmas Song", "Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas ( both 1944), "Let It Snow" (1945), and many more!
And don't forget: as usual, make sure you've spruced up your singing chops to join in on some good old fashioned sing-alongs! An evening not to miss for the entire family.
