Shaun Johnson Big Band Experience - The Spirit Of The Season Previous Broadcasts

KQED Life: Sun, Dec 29, 2013 -- 11:00 PM

Emmy-winning tenor Shaun Johnson - a founding member of the popular a cappella quartet Tonic Sol-Fa - goes solo in a spirited holiday special. He channels Dean Martin, Frank Sinatra and Tony Bennett in an era-spanning, up-tempo production that includes beloved seasonal staples, pop hits, fan favorites, an original composition and even a few unexpected numbers. Backed by a seven-member big band, Shaun covers holiday classics "Rocking on Top of the World," "Winter Wonderland," "Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer," "Silver Bells" and "Let It Snow," as well as Sinatra standards "My Kind of Town," "That's Life" and "Can I Steal a Little Love?" Shaun also puts his own stamp on Elvis' "Blue Christmas," Leonard Cohen's "Hallelujah," and Michael Buble's "Haven't Met You Yet." Shaun Johnson Big Band Experience - The Spirit Of The Season features Broadway-style staging and lighting, a visit from Santa himself and plenty of audience interaction - a staple of any Tonic Sol-fa production.
