The Little Big Band: Christmas Vacation

December 17, 2021 @ 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm

The Little Big Band is coming to swing some of our favorite holiday tunes including a few fun & funny ones. It’s the gift that keeps on giving Clark!

Taking inspiration from the holiday classic National Lampoon’s “Christmas Vacation”, the ColaJazz Little Big Band: the band that could! brings to the stage some of the great Christmas gems that Clark Griswold would approve. Following the movie’s storyline and referencing classic quotes, this swingin’ “Christmas Vacation” will be the hap, hap, happiest Christmas concert since Bing Crosby tap-danced with Danny [beep] Kaye!

“Where do you think you’re going? Nobody’s leaving. Nobody’s walking out on this fun, old-fashioned family Christmas. No, no. We’re all in this together. This is a full-blown, four-alarm holiday emergency here.” — Clark Griswold
