Why See Mannheim Steamroller?
Mannheim Steamroller's annual jingle-bell filled tour hits the Academy of Music in Philadelphia, PA, December 3, 2016
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!
