Make your list and check it twice! This holiday concert is more than just nice!! A Peter White Christmas featuring Rick Braun & Euge Groove is coming to town! Contemporary jazz lovers eagerly await this annual fun-filled concert which has packed fans into halls and arenas coast-to-coast year after year.

Peter White is an extraordinary and fluent acoustic guitarist whose skills are world-renowned. Over the years, he has maintained a reputation as one of the most versatile and prolific acoustic guitarists on the contemporary jazz landscape. Armed with an unparalleled combination of lyricism and energy, White combines elements of jazz, pop and classical guitar to create a sound that is singular and at the same time accessible to a broad audience. Rick Braun is a masterful trumpet/flugelhorn player whose warm tones transform the simplest melody into a work of art. Steven Eugene Grove, better known as Euge Groove, is a smooth jazz saxophonist with a strong Top-40 background. They have each separately sold millions of records and their combined fans will surely appreciate this special performance of Christmas Chestnuts!

Peter recalls: “My earliest memories of Christmas were probably not much different from many other people: snowflakes, tinsel, Santa Claus, reindeer and the opening of presents surrounded by family. As a child my father taught me to play Christmas music on my first instrument, the recorder, and my love for Christmas music has endured throughout the years. I hope this tour will be an opportunity for many Smooth Jazz fans to enjoy their favorite Christmas songs in a family setting. You know, I might even bring my recorder!” Peter White’s classic acoustic guitar style can be enjoyed through an ever-growing and best-selling catalog including his album, Playin’ Favorites (2006).

Says Rick Braun: “Christmas reminds me of the cold weather in PA where I grew up and long car trips with my family with the windows all steamy and rolled up, seeing lights in the windows of houses and then being with my dad and the whole family for turkey and football.”

Twenty years after they began releasing records as the Indigo Girls, Amy Ray and Emily Saliers have politely declined the opportunity to slow down with age. With a legacy of releases and countless U.S. and international tours behind them, the Indigo Girls have forged their own way into the music business. Selling over 14 million records, they are still going strong. Amy and Emily are the only duo with top 40 titles on the Billboard 200 in the ‘80s, ‘90s, ‘00s and ‘10s.

“Along with Simon & Garfunkel and The Everly Brothers, Amy Ray and Emily Saliers rank at the very top of all-time great duos. The sublime music-making-machine-skewering ‘Making Promises’ is one of their finest rockers.” – The Boston Herald

After signing to Epic Records in1988, the Indigo Girls released their critically acclaimed eponymous debut to thunderous praise; it remained on the Billboard Hot 100 Chart for 35 weeks, earned double platinum status, received a Grammy nomination for “Best New Artist” and won “Best Contemporary Folk Recording.” They were overnight folk icons who continued to live up to the high standards they’d set for themselves; they’ve since released 14 albums (three platinum and three gold), received six Grammy nominations and have won one. Indigo Girls have toured with innumerable star acts including Neil Young, Emmylou Harris, Joan Baez, R.E.M., Sarah MacLachlan, Natalie Merchant, Jewel and Mary Chapin Carpenter.

The duo has balanced their long, successful musical career by supporting numerous social causes – the Indigo Girls don’t just talk the talk; they walk the walk. Having established an intensely dedicated fan base, the duo continues to remain relevant and attract new fans, secured their spot as one of the most legendary musical acts of this generation.

The Indigo Girls’ most recent release, One Lost Day, marks their 14th studio album. The album received grand reviews, including four stars from The Independent (UK) which stated, “Their 14th studio album finds the Indigo Girls operating as powerfully as at any time in their career, on a set of uncommonly strong songs performed with the kind of typically understated Nashville polish that affords their signature harmonies the full spotlight.” Vast in its reach, but unified by the traveler’s sense of wonder, gratitude, and empathy, One Lost Day moves like a centrifuge, pulling the listener close to linger in the small moment, then casting out onto sonic currents. This is music of the past, present and future – a boundlessness earned and not bestowed. One Lost Day has a feeling of music composed across time, not just in time. These songs are rooted in tradition and inventive, too: nourished in dark soils, leafing and luminous
