What You'll Get
Rock concerts feature pyrotechnics more often than aquatechnics, mostly due to the danger of electrocution and the water solubility of drummers.

Made up of acclaimed musicians who have played with Boston, Sammy Hagar, and Emerson, Lake & Palmer, the December People spike holiday carols with the power chords and epic drum solos of classic rock. Using its collective experience and a team of songwriting elves kidnapped from the North Pole, the band turns wailing works by rock ‘n’ roll powerhouses such as Santana, ZZ Top, Boston, and YES into industrial-strength holiday music. Carol lyrics are transcribed over favorite rock hits, juxtaposing “Joy to the World” with The Who’s “Won’t Get Fooled Again” and “The Night Before Christmas” with “Stairway to Heaven.” While audiences lift lighters and illuminate their noses, camera crews capture the concert for the TV series Backline, scheduled for national release next year. As crowd members may appear in the video, they should dress according to the rules of television, eschewing white or striped clothing, hats, visible brand names or logos, and greenscreen bodysuits. In addition to savoring hard-rocking Christmas cheer, attendees delight in the joyous feeling of benefiting Sobrato Arts, a nonprofit organization that mentors and trains Bay Area high-school students interested in the arts.
