Do you sing in the shower? Do you sing in the car when your favorite songs come on the radio? How about James Corden’s carpool karaoke; unable to resist joining in? Join Tom and Gay Galvin for a Christmas sing-along and you’ll hear your favorites along with background on the writers and the backstory of the songs.
For example, where did Rudolph get that red nose? Where did all those elves come from? Why is mommy kissing Santa Claus? There will be some funny songs, some spiritual songs and some old-fashioned Christmas songs guaranteed to get you in the mood for the Holidays if you aren’t already.
The concert will be held on Saturday, December 8th at 7pm at the Burrows Theater, 630 E Street in Marysville. General admission is $5, and the musicians have generously waived their fees so that all proceeds benefit Yuba Sutter Arts and its many community arts programs. The concert will be funny, fun, and will even explore a little of the spiritual side of Christmas.
Tom and Gay are the “dynamic duo” of the local music scene. They have both appeared on the Lee Burrows Theater stage many times with various ensembles playing a variety of styles and genres of music. Tom is the leader of the Songwriter Slam and Gay leads the 3rd Sunday Jazz Jam, both monthly get togethers for musicians and wanna-be musicians, at Yuba Sutter Arts.
Gay and Tom are originally from Ohio. Tom has written songs for touring bands from the American Midwest to the American far west. He “troubadoured” around the country for several years while also training to become a psychotherapist. Gay has a master’s degree in piano performance in jazz. She teaches classical/Suzuki piano and jazz/improv in her studio in Marysville. She has played across most musical genres and in a variety of ensembles including some rock bands, but her heart belongs to jazz. Yuba Sutter Arts is proud to have Gay as their “Musician in Residence.”
Come out and support this fun community music event. Plenty of free parking is available on the streets adjacent to the theatre and at the Umpqua Bank and Bank of America parking lots directly across the street.
