Can’t get enough of the Holiday Express, especially given they were in town recently? You’re in luck because they’re coming back for their “Ultimate Holiday Show” at The Count Basie Theatre on December 18th and 19th.
The acclaimed philanthropic group, Holiday Express, brings its “Ultimate Holiday Show” to The Count Basie Theatre. Featuring 50 professional musicians and singers on stage, Holiday Express blends its unique mixture of traditional, gospel, and rock’n soul holiday music in a spectacular performance that will touch you with the spirit of the season.
Now in its 25th season, Holiday Express is a traveling holiday party, a from-the-heart troupe of musicians bringing music, friendship, help and hope to those too often left out in the cold at the most special time of the year. The band normally plays far from the limelight, in sometimes desperate circumstances, and all for absolutely no pay. Made up of more than 100 of the best musicians on the Jersey Shore, the Holiday Express volunteer musicians will play this year in 100 shows between November 6th and Christmas Eve. At each event, the musicians along with several dozen support staff, will deliver not only music, but, clothing, food and fun to adults and children in need, including veterans, the mentally and physically challenged, individuals in addiction and recovery programs, the isolated and the homeless.
Tickets for this concert range between $25 to $125, so you’ll want to purchase them beforehand.
