Take a look here to see if Mannheim Steamroller is showing somewhere nearby

Mannheim Steamroller's annual jingle-bell filled tour hits the Academy of Music in Philadelphia, PA, showing for one date only on 3 Dec 2011!

The Festive Favorite returns!

With the release of Mannheim Steamroller's first holiday album 1984 came the kind of fame that made the act a veritable Christmas time tradition. With founder and composer Chip Taylor at the helm, the all-American music troupe continues to tour extensively, bringing Yuletide cheer to audiences throughout the US with a unique Neo-Classical take on popular carols and songs. It's no wonder that Mannheim Steamroller is the top-selling Holiday Act of all time!

From Gregorian chant and medieval-style compositions to electrically charged synth-tinged orchestral pop, there is no musical stone left unturned in Taylor's impressive repertoire - most of the albums in the Fresh Aire series hit certified Gold status shortly after release. Expect snow machines, dancers, family-orientated fun and of course, plenty of seasonal spirit!
