Only in America could two gentlemen of the Jewish persuasion and heritage have composed the songs that are the epitome of expression of the spirit of the consummate Christian holiday....And, only in America could these songs be made immortal by two gentlemen of significantly diverse racial, ethnic, and cultural background and heritage.

I'm speaking, of course, of Irving Berlin, Mel Torme, Nat "King" Cole, and Bing Crosby. These men of music are the embodiment of what it means to be American and in America at Christmas time....

The music speaks for itself....

Well, I certainly wouldn't compare us to any of the artists saluted above; but if I do say so myself, our band does a pretty decent job of White Christmas and The Christmas Song (I think I just twisted my back by patting myself too hard on it).

I murder white Christmas at least four times a year. I just love that song...not a big fan of Christmas, but I love the music.
