Join the Rock My Soul choir and band (complete with horns!) for a spirit-soaring evening of R&B, pop, soul, and doo-wop flavored arrangements of Christmas carols and popular holiday favorites. Numbers range from high-energy, emotionally charged arrangements of familiar songs such as “Joy to the World” and “Jesus, O What a Wonderful Child” to the less familiar but no less inspiring “Hey, Skinny Santa” and “Behold That Star.” In contrast, introspective carols such as “O Holy Night” and a Temptations arrangement of “Silent Night,” along with an Eartha Kitt-influenced version of “Santa Baby” will also be performed. A magical and uplifting night for the entire family!

Hailing from southern Maine, Rock My Soul has performed to packed venues in New England since 2004. They’ve performed on TV shows such as NH Chronicle and 207, on radio programs such as Maine Things Considered, and one of their songs was featured in a PBS documentary entitled Freedom Songs: Music of the Civil Rights Movement. Their holiday shows have become such an audience favorite that families make it a tradition to come year after year. This is not one to miss!
