As the first performance was inspired by the original recording, the next recording will attempt to capture the warmth, fun and musical range of the performances that have occurred over the last 6 years.
I’m pleased to say that "Oh Crap, It's Christmas!" has transcended it's original intention and has become a new holiday tradition for many people, musicians and audience members alike. We’ll be recording with the house band we’ve been using in large part since day one: Josh Paxton on piano; Alex McMurray on guitar; Andre Bohren on drums; Jack Craft on cello, glockenspiel and acoustic guitar; Matt Perrine on bass, sousaphone and music director and Debbie Davis (hey, that’s me!) as the erstwhile mistress of ceremonies. Our special guests will include local luminaries, Susan Cowsill, Paul Sanchez, and Dayna Kurtz as well as members of my immediate family, Barbara Smith-Davis (my mother and operatic soprano singing Oh Holy Night); Darwin Davis (my sister and Dallas Indy darling performing her original song, Grandmother Christmas, written about our Grandmother); Ben Perrine (my son playing guitar and drums); and JB Davis (my father and operatic basso profundo who passed away in 2017 singing Sweet Little Jesus Boy).
It will be distributed digitally to iTunes, Spotify, etc and via this website where downloads, CDs and download cards will be offered with the option of giving them as gifts that we can send directly to your friends and family.
