Tis the season….and its gonna be a busy weekend for the Off their Jingle Bell Rockers.
The Rockers have performed together for over ten years and have been a crowd pleaser for popular events such as the Montana Ave Holiday Walk and the Main Street Holiday Extravaganza.
See image, below from left to right of The Off Their Jingle Bell Rockers Jon Preston, Kathy Leonardo, Suzy Williams, Catherine Allison, Mikal Sandoval, and Rory Johnston.
The Off Their Jingle Bell Rockers are very excited to be performing again this year at Montana’s Holiday Walk on Friday December 5th from 6-9pm.
The zany group will be strolling up and down the Avenue in festive costumes spreading holiday spirit. It’s a great time to do some shopping while enjoying holiday cheer. The event runs from 6th street to 17th street from 5:00 pm to 9:00 pm. Many stores are participating and having their own exclusive events. The Off Their Jingle Bell Rockers will be caroling up and down Montana Avenue from 6-9pm.
Then on Saturday, the Main Street Holiday Extravaganza takes place (December 6th) from 6:00 pm till 9:00 pm.
The event begins with a Christmas tree lighting at Ocean Park and Main, (the site of the Sunday Santa Monica Farmers Market) followed by a candlelight walk to an amazing Shopping Cart Christmas Tree at Edgemar Pl (by Ben & Jerry’s and Peet’s Coffee, 90401).
The Shopping Cart Christmas Tree is designed by Santa Monica artist Anthony Schmitt.
Here, the Off Their Jingle Bell Rockers will sing a short set (six songs) before they move on down Main Street. Most of the stores on Main Street will stay open and the Rockers will stop in to perform holiday classics.
But you still have one more chance to see this popular holiday group on Sunday on Abbot Kinney. The famed street will host a holiday shopping event complete with real snow in the parking lot of the Brigg (off Palms).
The Rockers are set to perform at Tumbleweed and Dandelion. (TIME IS TBA….stay tuned). This charming shop is located at 1502 Abbot Kinney Blvd, Venice, CA 90291; (310) 450-4310; http://www.tumbleweedanddandelion.com/
The Off their Jingle Bell Rockers are not your typical holiday group. Yes they happen to be terrific singers, but they also dress incredibly flamboyant, and have an amazing amount of energy, which makes for a truly fun and lively show. They add a different slant to Christmas Caroling. Their offbeat harmonies and original arrangements bring a zany twist to the classic Christmas Carol.
This eccentric group also performs its own original holiday songs. The Off Their Jingle Bell Rockers include Catherine Allison, Rory Johnston, Kathy Leonardo, Jon Preston, Mikal Sandoval and Suzy Williams.
