On December 19th, we’re teaming up with old pals East Nashville Underground at The Stone Fox to bring you a night full of Christmas caroling fun with more than a dozen of your favorite local bands. Those of you who joined us last year will remember arm in arm singing, shenanigans, laughs galore, and some awesome takes on the holiday standards. This year we can expect the same from friends like Alanna Royale, *repeat repeat, Tesla Rossa, Steve Lee, Hot Tub Club, and Waterfall Wash. There are sure to be some hushed moments when Luella & Tim Carroll or Liza Anne take the stage, and it will be an evening for you to get to know some of the fastest rising acts in Nashville like Jung Youth, Ugly Kids Club, Hotel War, Diamond Carter, Photo Ops, Gardening Not Architecture, Buffalo Rodeo, American Dream, That’s My Kid, Heathen Sons, Tetherball, and Twiggs!
Want more? No problem. This sucker is FREE! That’s right. Come one, come all to this celebration of friends and music at The Stone Fox starting at 7pm on December 19th! We’ll have printed caroling books compliments of JIVE! in case you don’t know the lyrics, and we’ll also be keeping it charitable again this year with a canned food drive (for humans and pets). So, get in the holiday spirit, and regift those refried beans!
For the rest of the week, we’ll be getting you in the mood with little previews of each of the bands that will be performing carols on Friday. We gave a glimpse into Alanna Royale, *repeat repeat, Tesla Rossa, and American Dream yesterday that you can check out here. Otherwise, make sure you RSVP at the Facebook event page, and get acquainted with more of the performers after the jump.
We’ve been on the Waterfall Wash bandwagon since their first show. We watched them grow from talented friends into a band with a truly unique sound. They recently performed at our weekly showcase at Acme Feed & Seed, and had us proclaiming them “Nashville’s Next Break-Out Band”. While they will probably need to increase the output to take that title to the bank, it seems that The Deli Nashville has already taken notice as they are currently nominated for artist of the month (you can still vote here until December 22nd). If you need some convincing, check out their third single released earlier this fall to get a glimpse of what this band is capable of.
THE HOT TUB CLUB
Yes, a tear or two was shed when we heard that Brandon Jazz had sent his Armed Forces home on leave, but there was no doubt in our mind that he would be back with a crazy new project. Enter The Hot Tub Club, friends. A king of comedy and the party scene, we should have called it that Jazz and crew would be back with a solid dose of both in musical form. Catch a sneak peek below, and beware of potential crowd surfing injuries.
Songwriter and all around entertainer Steve Lee has put his awesome project Yumzah on the back burner for a moment after finding his love of entertaining children while working as a local music teacher. Lee has since taken these talents to the streets under the moniker of Mr. Steve, The Music Man. He joined forces with Lightning 100 this year to man a kids tent at Live On The Green, and has been incredibly busy this holiday season. While the content will likely be more mature for our 18+ event, you can definitely expect to laugh when Mr. Steve takes the stage.
Heathen Sons are relatively new to our site, but, after listening to their recently released track “17”, we don’t think that they are going to be under the radar for much longer. It’s a little bit Kings Of Leon and a little bit Wild Feathers, but a whole lot of rock. Have a listen below to get a taste.
The Third Annual Christmas Carol Show takes place Friday (12/19/14) at The Stone Fox. The show is 18+, begins at 7pm (doors at 6pm), and it’s totally FREE!
