Christmas Time Is (Almost) Here
We don't do big Christmas productions or even a simple choir event...our band just rocks the house with some fun and sincere Christmas music.
For those of you who are beginning to think about Christmas, I cannot say enough about Mercy Me's "The Christmas Sessions" album. We used 6 songs from this album last year in church, and will probably do the same again this year. Some of the best and most fresh (which is saying a LOT for a Christmas album) renditions of some old favorites (both "sacred" and "secular") that I've heard in a long time. "God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen" is especially fun to play.
And, I just checked...it's on sale for $7.99 at iTunes.
What are you planning on doing for Christmas that involves you band?
