For your tree: just download the Chaise Lounge Christmas Ornament, print on heavy paper, follow the directions, et voila! Joyeaux Noël.
We had a rehearsal last night that went past the start of the Redskins/Giants game. That, my friends, is dedication! Even though concentration wavered as we polished up our Christmas songs, no one actually bolted to go check in on the game. Hail to Chaise Lounge. Hail to the Redskins.
At least for Chaise Lounge, that is how this show feels. We will be playing all our groovy Christmas songs at The Hamilton this Friday. Once we do that, I will eat cookies and pie all the way to New Year’s Eve…when we will be playing at the Kennedy Center!
We played a wonderful gig at The Mansion at Strathmore tonight. Bless their hearts, they made a program for the event. They chose this picture of me—that does not exactly make me look like a musician. We asked the audience to write captions. This one, the band decided, was the clear winner.
It reads, “Sorry to hear about the loss of your mother. Would you like to go with the pine or the oak casket?”
Chaise Lounge are now contributors to the vast world of Christmas albums with A Very Chaise Lounge Christmas (Modern Songbook), and if you like your holiday festivities to be a bit on the jazzy side, this is for you.
The songs on this range from the familiar to the slightly obscure along with new compositions, so you get to hear Marilyn Older grace her beautiful voice in tracks like “December 25″, “Good King Wenceslas”, “The Man With The Bag”, “Christmasville, U.S.A.”, and one of my all time favorites, “Little Drummer Boy”. It’s a chance for everyone in the group to shine in their own way, and even with the glut of Christmas music available, Chaise Lounge are capable of making these classics sound new again while exchanging them with new songs that will hopefully be recorded by others for years to come.
