For the 26th year, Mannheim Steamroller ushers in the holidays with its annual Christmas tour, as two classically trained troupes of musicians travel cross-country to energize audiences with seasonal spirit. Captained by industry trailblazer Chip Davis since the mid-1980s, the ensemble's modern reworkings of adored Christmas jingles were originally met with widespread skepticism from record distributors, retail stores, and indecisive shopping-mall Santas. Today, with more than 27 million albums sold, Mannheim Steamroller's unconventional electronic melodies continues to breathe new life into classics such as "Joy to the World," "Deck the Halls," and "The First Noel." Adding to an already stuffed career stocking, the band has also collaborated with musical icons such as Johnny Mathis, Olivia Newton-John, and jazz legend Paul Winter.
