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.
