SUNDAY Dec 10
For the 11th year, East-Dallas based vocalist Kelly Brown tunes her creative ringmaster talents to serve up a wildly eclectic night of holiday music. Brown brings together a Mix of Dallas’ all-star musicians to perform original holiday arrangements in a set that includes everything from big-band swing and bluegrass to alt-pop and rocked up classical pieces. A party on and off the stage, audience members have made the "Holiday Mix," a Christmas tradition – dressing for the occasion in holiday attire or even elf costumes. While the annual show took a 1-year hiatus for the neighborhood to “mourn the loss,” of its original home at the Lakewood Theatre it is time to resurrect the show with new life at The Granada on Greenville Avenue. “The show has always been a holiday celebration for me with and for family, friends and our neighborhood,” said Brown, “it’s a unique, holiday energy when all these musicians make the time to collaborate their wide-range of musical talents for a community celebration and we are grateful we have another equally historic venue to now call home to our show.” Brown hopes her loyal audience is as anxious to see the show return to stage all ready to dance and sing along! Expect to see favorites like Freddie Jones, Reggie Rueffer, Mack Price along with guest appearances.
Please join us for an evening of cocktails, food and music to celebrate the unveiling of the new Blow Salon. Paparazzi will be onsite so dress to impress! RSVP HERE.
In case you didn't know, the owners of Blow are our neighbors and support our neighborhood, so support them.
